This is true. It's a major problem that people see society as being about supporting factional perspectives rather than determining truths by means of research and debate.
But I don't think this is the only reason why America is going down-hill. People behaving like sheep is a symptom of the efforts of those who act like shepards. People are born into societies which are better and better able to indoctrinate people into commercially beneficial ways of enabling power centers to remain power centers. Resent the king before you hate the pawns. What really enables control in America is the belief that integrity and honoring your contracts are the highest moral ideals. For it is the threat of hell which keeps men aligned. Freedom is the ability to change your mind, to shift your perspective and to alter your alignment whenever you discover it was unaligned with truth.
While I certainly agree with you about topics, in a two party system it is hard to have a meaningful voice about which parts of a platform, or which views a party express you agree with.
In forums like this though, you are completely right. It is possible to be pro life and gay rights (which are typically on opposite sides of the political spectrum). It is also possible to fall somewhere between the two factions, and I suspect most people do.
Majority of the American people are sheep. if someone is labeled a conservative they vote strictly for conservative views. Vice versa for Liberal. Instead of giving everyone labels for everything and being followers, VOTE your OWN choice and not what everyone is doing. just because you consider yourself on one side of the conservative liberal debate doesn't mean you have to agree with one side for the hell of it. Be a leader not a follower
