What makes some people IMMATURELY contend that a person is a PURE liberal or conservative
in his/her beliefs when an evolved, thinking, & intelligent person realizes that no person is a pure liberal or conservative in his/her beliefs & that his/her beliefs are a combination of both liberal & conservative? What causes these same people to further assert that just because a person is a liberal or conservative that h/she has to agree with & never criticize any liberal or conservative politician? What happened to the concept of having a mind of one's own instead of having a herd consensus in relation to political & ideological beliefs?

You see this happen between men and women as well. They love to take "gender shortcuts" by saying things like: (All men think like this or All women think like that). Here is what women expect or men want.
They lack the interest of getting to know people (individually).
I don't care for labels, and I try not to use them except in the most general sense. I also don't think that words like immature make a cogent argument or description as it taints the question.
