To political parties, unions, companies, etc.
I find that not blindly following some of the more popular causes on this site can land you in hot water - flaming hot water. But I can't be the only one that thinks before commiting.

2. I'm blindly against some parties...
But not blindly for others.

Of course, I consider that merely having made up my mind. If the situation changes, and somehow the GOP decides to become progressive and the Dems decide to become fascist pigs, then I'll join the GOP :evilgrin:

3. You are not alone at all
Anybody who follows any group, person, entity, is a fool who has given up the greatest gift bestowed upon us: free will.

5. Of course not
I don't blindly follow anything or anybody.

Don't worry. It is easy to attract flames around here but as long as you make sound arguments I'll be there to defend you. You gotta watch my back too though, in case I ever mention that Roe v. Wade is not my sole criterion for judging a judicial nominee.

Oops. :evilgrin:
