We might never know why regular people continue to vote for a certain party just because they have always voted for its representatives. We might also never know why they are proud of it is considered as an expression of loyalty. In my opinion, there must be no place for loyalty when we talk about politics
Regular people just called “regular” but, in fact, there is nothing “regular” about them. Because it is them who deliver growth in production numbers and move goods around the world making the global economy expand. And it is them who decide which party’s representative is going to lead the nation by voting.
It is not a secret that politics is a dirty business, if not the dirtiest. It is also well known that politicians would say what they actually think. What we know is that there is always something else behind a big difference between words they say and their actions.
In my opinion. there are at least two reasons why people shall not be loyal to the political party. First, by being loyal people could make the wrong decision and help the wrong person to come to power. Second, the wrong choice will affect their lives and lives of many people around the world. Since it is often impossible to detect when politicians make false statements and there are no means to verify what stands behind it, people may check historical facts to have a better understanding whether they are going to make the right choice.

Due to the stubbornly emotionless nature, facts illustrate events exactly as they happened. If people would take a closer look, they may realize that which political party they shall vote for.
During the 2016 U.S. presidential elections, American people have made a choice which is, most likely, could not be more wrong. As a result, the recovered economy started to show a significant decline in business activities, an accelerated level of political tensions is unprecedented, and the current president of the United States do not promise bright future not only for the United States but the entire world.
The choice was so wrong that even politicians within the party are divided. AS we know, the division is not a good sign and politicians know it better than others. Imagine to what extend the elected president is the wrong choice that even political representatives of the party which nominated him are divided.
I think we should consider ourselves very lucky if we survive by the end of his term. Therefore, if we survive, we shall understand that there must be no place for loyalty when we talk about politics.
We shall stop saying whether we “like” or “dislike” politicians or political party. The choice must be based on facts and facts only. Because participation in the most important process will make a significant impact on the whole society and global community. Whether the impact is positive or negative will depend entirely on the choice that people make.
It is also important to stop labeling people. It is necessary to exclude words like “liberal”. “conservative”, “left”, “centrist”, “right” or not right. People are not shirts or jeans, therefore, labels shall be left behand.
It could be impossible to reach an agreement on anything if we continue to use this approach because it disables the ability to absorb different opinion. A preconceived notion which is produced by labels makes it impossible.
In fact, I think it is the reason behind of why discussions (exchange of opinion to find out WHAT IS RIGHT) transformed into arguments (when opinion is immaterial because it is about WHO IS RIGHT). Or, why “opinion” suddenly considered as a synonym of “perception”.
It is still not too late to start learning. Besides, it seems that we do not have much choice which is about two options, we either learn how to make the right choice or we might end up being the human race’s last generation.
