2. That's a paradox.
If one is inclined to vote 'yes' then one must also believe that we should think the same thing (as is stated in the question); given that thus far everybody has voted 'no' by voting 'yes' one would introduce dissent thus contradicting oneself.

3. Not really.
That is only one question. If two, then you would expect to see some divergence here.

4. Dichotomy rules
Which is why Nader don't stand a chance next to Kush and Berry.

8. Americans express their individuality by shopping
at the same stores and dressing the same way.

9. And if you try to choose your own style, well that's a symptom of
schizophrenia or schizotypal disorder. :crazy: :eyes:

10. Oh but of course.....I don't dress all that femmy
and at one workplace my co-workers thought it important to advise me of such.


Yeah, it's hard when you march to the beat of a different drummer (as I have all my life).

11. Being a free thinker is good
Both sets of grandparents taught me that both directly and indirectly. I don't know why other people seemed to be taught the opposite.

12. You don't need to follow anybody!


You've got to think for yourselves! You're all individuals!





YES, WE'RE ALL INDIVIDUALS!
