Nonpartisan — It is Not a Complicated Definition
December 10, 2013|Posted in: Bipartisan Compromise
Candidates run on campaigns of independence and “nonpartisan”. However, Nebraskans know what happens to votes when they go to Washington. We can read a dictionary to understand Republican and Democrat is not a definition of “nonpartisan.” Let’s not lie to Nebraskans. Republican and Democrat is partisan.
Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary – “Nonpartisan” free from party affiliation, bias, or designation.
Wikipedia – “Bias” is an inclination of temperament or outlook to present or hold a partial perspective and a refusal to even consider the possible merits of alternative points of view.
After reading those definitions I think it is safe to say one should not call herself or himself nonpartisan if they are a member of a political party.
