your either for or against, with no wiggle room in the middle.

you have to make a stand one way or the other.

its either black or white, i cant ever be gray.

i think absolutes are for people who have limited mental capabilities, as they do not have the ability to understand that not everything has to be one way or the other.

i think as you've seen absolute politics grow and grow, its correlated with the increasing stupidity among the voting public.

just an observation.

In the middle of what? Please don't say this imaginary two-dimensional left-right bit. It's far more complicated than just 2, 3, or 4 options and ideas and just a few platforms to define all of them.
