Labels never capture who you are

I am always amazed at how in contemporary American life the use of labels are so commonly applied. Positions appear to be rigid, and once the label is applied then listening stops and rancor takes over. It is rarely beneficial to label any human being because the complexities of life do not neatly fall under simple labels. For example I am very progressive on the social issues, and believe in full equality for all persons under the constitution.However, I am conservative about a host of fiscal issues that need to be addressed. The issues are more important than the labels. So shouting and photo opportunities may create comfort, but they never lead to growth and solutions.
