Red or Blue?
When I was younger I was one of the above mentioned colors. It was cool at the time and I even interned for a senator my junior year that was of the same party affiliation. My views were heavily influenced by the idealism of youth before the inching gray took over. Once my views evolved from being black and white, I changed parties. I saw the endless layers of each political topic. No one is ever truly right.
Now I am of the other color that is about a tougher love than allowing everyone to run hog wild. I am happier being this color. There is a rich history of this party and an added element of secrecy. People who know me, know my color scheme and those that don’t have a hard time telling.
Why the secrecy?
I had a reached my annoyance level with those of the other party screaming at me that I wrong about the issues. None of us are wrong, we can be misinformed or short-sighted, but never fully at a miss. It speaks to our current political climate that I am not willingly to share my color. The few people that I know that were hostile towards me for my choice are enough to prevent me from speaking openly.
We should be able to change our minds and to come out of the political closet.
