Note on ideology

In reading my last post, it occurred to me that I am offended when accused of being a liberal and embarrassed by being called a conservative. However, I take it as the highest complement when members of each group accuse me of siding with the other one.

It is wiser to treat each issue on its own merits rather than parrot the party line, and to change one's mind as new evidence accumulates - qualities lacking in ideologues.
