Can you not see that is a losing position, as bad as being a bleeding heart liberal? If you're that far to the right, don't you recognize that you have no hope of achieving anything meaningful, and are nothing but an irritant to moderates on both sides?

"In all things, moderation" is variously attributed to the Delphi Oracle, Aristotle and Andrias Terence, a Roman dramatist from the 1st century BC. Regardless of who said it, it's wise advice.

i dont know what you are talking about Oldtimer, that is not my experience on the far Right or when i was on the far Left. I dont begrudge you for being in the middle, that is your choice, but it does nothing for me.

I think this is a thread about what YOU(the individual) chooses for YOUR Life.

One can believe what one wants, having a voice in change in your world can be quite another.

By any measure, those on the extremes cannot seriously influence events except through violence

Default Divided

The country is deeply divided politically, more than I have ever seen in my lifetime. This may be very bad in the long term if that old saying is true - "united we stand, divided we fall". I guess America is on it's way down if that saying proves true.

Agreed. The problem is neither side is willing to admit that they DON'T have all the answers. Instead we end up with mob-rules.

The problem is that both sides --- Democrat and Republican, liberal and conservative --- are simply haggling over the details of different forms of materialism. Very few of them have the true American "values."

There's actually a very good article about this very thing at:

I am proud independent.

I consider myself a social and fiscal liberal though.

I'm a Republican....all the way.

In my younger days I was a dumocrat. But then again most people are when they are younger. Then they grow up and learn that society needs principles and morals and then they go Republican.

dumocrat? Do you know what kind of self-image you portray when you use words like that?
