Look past deceptive labels

I have a chunk of granite and a block of marble. Unless you aren't too bright you'll recognize that neither is suitable as food. I might decide to call the granite "cheese" and the marble "horse manure", but that doesn't make the granite more edible. It's just a trick of mislabeling.

Well, the same goes for politicians.

You see this most often with "conservatives" and Libertarians (LP), where someone is only viewed as a particular thing because of the label they have chosen- but they have none of the attributes of that thing which they are claimed to be.

And, neither is suitable for running your life anyway.
