At one time I was a union member and a democrat and believed in redistribution and high taxation for some.
As I grew older I became more conservative and aligned more with the GOP.
Now years later I am solidly a conservative and an independent and realize the folly of the parties and the similarities to the point that there is little difference.

People today tend to group together with others with similar beliefs allowing little room for questioning their beliefs. The cities are a perfect example of the herd theory.
In human societies, herding often involves people using the actions of others as a guide to sensible behavior, instead of independently seeking out high-quality information about the likely outcomes of these actions.
