11. I'd love for a day to come and we see what all these folks believe.
None of it seems to say much. Conservatives are radicals. Center means corporate. Progressive seems close to a universally applicable label, at this point. Moderate often is used to describe conservatives, even arch conservative types because on rare occasion they exhibit signs of sanity and/or respect for our fundamental legal underpinnings.

Tell me what people's endgame is, what means they will achieve it by, what they think of the status quo, how resolute they are about reaching they are about their goals, and what they will and won't compromise on and I'll believe in labels and what their use is supposed to imply.
I'll still feel free to side against my own pack if I don't agree.

I think the use of these numbers to try to herd people is hamfisted. People employing the tactic think they are using a deft hand utilizing a liberals healthy questioning and self examination to erode passion and compromise on principle while using group think as a means to discredit criticism as "fringe" but the constant drumming of the theme and magic bullet like employment for all circumstances is probably sewing more seeds of distrust and rebellion that holding lines.
