Attaching labels is dangerous

To the editor:

Democrats = Socialists? Let’s think about this. Not all Democrats are Godless socialists and not all Republicans are neo-Nazi fascists. There are intelligent, thoughtful, pragmatic folks on both sides who avoid the extremes of both the Democratic and Republican parties.

Labels do us no good. They are discourteous, disrespectful and, sadly, even inflammatory. I may be a Democrat, but I’m no socialist.
