Who are you? For a helluva long time we have, as a society defined ourselves by rote. We have reflexively used monikers to function as macros to explain who we are. Increasingly it is becoming clear that this is no longer an accurate or reliable method. I want to know who you are. I am not asking who or what you hail from. I am not asking your Party, religious or racial affiliation. I want to know your beliefs. I am hoping that this exercise will help to uncover the core humanity and compassion shown so elequently from all camps in the threads regarding Terry Shriavo. Those of us who are not Americans, please post with your citizenship as a subject... I want to aim this primarilly at fellow Americans as we, as a society deny commonality of identity to the point that we have, IMHO lost track of what "American" really means. I believe that all people have a right to live and die in dignity, free of opression. I believe that all persons are created equal and in the image of Divinity. I believe that politics and religion are like ego and relationship: inherently inseperable but mutually destructive. I believe that a person's religion or party affiliation is less important than their equal treatment under the law. I believe that The Constitution should be the core document of policy. I believe that money and nepotism have nearly destroyed any shred of humanity left in DC. I believe that taxes should be simple and direct with no exceptions or shelters. I believe that quality of life is more important than standard of living. I believe that decisions should be made in the moment on a case by case basis. That is all part of who I am. Who are you?
