It is all about values…

For a while I have said that in politics it is all about values.  Values make you a Republican a Democrat or an independent.  Values make a statement about you.  Values establish a bond between people that is hard to dissolve.  If you ask someone to describe a Republican this is what you may get back:

Pro-Life          Pro-Gun          Pro-God          Pro-family      Small government

Low taxes       Anti-abortion                          Balanced budget

Anti-Gay         Strong military                       Pro-business

Ask someone to describe a Democrat and this is what you may get back:

Tax and spend             Pro-abortion

Big government          Weak on military

Big spender                 Anti-second amendment

Keeping in mind that these are merely perceptions.  One of the enduring lessons from my military experience is that perceptions are reality.  Or, as one of my supervisors once said, “don’t confuse me with the facts.”
