We are not Labels

From the No Labels website:

We are not labels – we are people.

We care deeply about our country.

We are frustrated and concerned about the tone of politics.

We are passionate about addressing America’s challenges.

We are Democrats, Republicans and Independents.

Most importantly, we are Americans.

We believe hyper-partisanship is destroying our politics and paralyzing our ability to govern.

We may disagree on issues, but we do so with civility and mutual respect.

We believe in the vital civil center — a place where ideas are judged on their merits.

We believe that together we can make the future better and brighter — and give us what we all deserve — a government and a political system that works — one driven by shared purpose and common sense.

We believe our politics can change, so that government will work again and produce better results.

The consequences of inaction have never been greater, because the issues we face have never been more serious, more complicated, or more dangerous.

And yet, we have a crisis of governance – A crisis that compels us to work together to move America forward.

We must put our labels aside, and put the issues and what’s best for the nation first.

A promising future awaits us.

  1. I like this! The tragic shooting in Phoenix aside, the vitrolic partisanship in this country has taken us to new lows. Let's stop the finger pointing and do something useful for a change!

  5. By labeling yourself as no labels, aren't you giving yourself a label. Even no labels has a logo, which is a label.

  6. Mr Chaard - Aren't you purposefully missing the point by focusing on the minutiae?
