Core beliefs drive the American political parties. There are really only two political core beliefs; two basic and fundamental view points. After stripping away all the polite posturing to save face publicly you either vote for A or you vote for B in the privacy of the booth.
● Protect your shit by any means necessary.
● Collect the best shit available and make sure that only you and people exactly like you have access to the best shit available
● There’s enough shit for everyone.
● The country is better when we all do better by sharing the good shit.
Which is your core belief?
Can you say it openly in the company of others?
To paraphrase a Dixie Chicks song, there’s your trouble.
