Candidates running for public office define themselves with stereotypical names and political jargon. Why can't they just talk about the issues and let that define them?

We hear: I'm the true Conservative; I'm the Independent candidate; I'm the outsider; I'm not a politician. They are just repeating what they heard "someone of importance" say somewhere at sometime. It seems to be of importance to no one but themselves.

The name I am proud to carry in this election is "American"! That is good enough for me!
