liberals conservatives and independents (oh my!)

conservatives believe they're right and this means anything they do is not only right, but required. nothing gets in the way of their actions, not even info to the contrary.

liberals believe they're right and so they need to convince you of that. nothing gets in the way of their arguments, not even a failure to sway you.

independents are the poor saps in the middle, hoping the radicals will stop screaming at each other enough so we can all have a productive conversation.
