I am just curious, how does he asking a question of wether you are right wing or left wing make him a seperatist?

I don't really know how to compare "left and right" to "heaven and hell".
But to clarify on how asking "left or right" makes a person separatist:
There are millions of political "topics", which everyone has their own opinion in regards to. For anyone to sum a person up as being "left or
right" is complete and utter poppycock. It is common knowledge that "left and right" was invented to provide Americans with a "party" to belong
to. Without fitting into some nice, clean little mold, how could any of us debate one another? How could we get anything done?
I am against that reasoning. It is of my opinion that once we shake these false labels, we can once again return to being "Americans" together,
instead of a separatist society, always taking turns to shoot down the other side. Right now, if a democrat is elected into office- the next
republican to take office will work hard to repeal much of the democrats hard work. If we had no groups, just Americans, we could focus on what really
matters- America. Not the left, not the right... but right and wrong.
