    It’s OK, both sides can throw rocks at the moderates in the middle. In all my years in politics, I have never seen such partisan animosity, prejudice and intellectual dishonesty as is present in the current political environment.

    I blame intellectual laziness. There has never been a time like the present, with so much opportunity to be informed, and apply critical thinking, and so many choose to accept those partisans who pander to readers’ biases and prejudices.


    Freedom of thought.
    Use it or lose it.

    Yes, but the problem is one side agrees that compromise and negotiations are necessary parts of the process and the other side believes they are evil. Makes it difficult to get anything done.

    I heard a comment last night that makes sad sense. Politics has become a team sport. When the discussion starts, each side puts on their uniform and there’’s no room for compromise, just victory at any cost. “Clowns to the left of me, jokers on the right…”

    Amen to that. Most partisans (I call them True Believers) are more interested in winning than doing what’s best for the country. And people who are not necessarily America’s “friends” can see it clearly. There’s always been partisanship but nothing like this. I’m afraid it’s going to take another 9-11 to wake the True Believers (and their party leaders) up…if that’s even possible anymore.

    As I posted yesterday, the gulf is mainly on the Republican side that has gone way way to the Reich at 22% whereas the Democrats 6% to the left, it didn’t say how far Right they have gone, but they have still. The Middle has coasted to the Right side as well.

    “See yesterday’s post..” Why, it’s just more of your partisan pontificating. Considering your choice of avatar, it’s hard to take you seriously. I admit though, you picked a very accurate, descriptive avatar.

    Although I am more conservative than tea partiers, I have less problem with even crazed leftists than I do with “moderates.” Moderates are rudderless souls, guided by no beliefs or ideology, blown by whatever is the prevailing political wind. A moderate’s virtue is his one true belief, that his superior individual knowledge of the world allows him to adjudicate every issue without ever seeing any patterns to the history of man. At least the crazy leftists have an informed guiding light, even if it is one I despise.

    Moderates fail to grasp the truth of Christ, that no man can have two masters. “Peace” and “freedom” are mutually exclusive. Leftists choose “peace” and surrender “freedom,” conservatives choose “freedom” and sacrifice “peace,” and moderates choose “neither.”

    I choose and am fairly comfortably adaptable to what I can find of both…The Oingo-Boingo’s that expect all of it, and complains about whichever side they have least of are the ones that are to be pitied. They are both greedy and will never be satisfied. They are easily identifiable by their condemnation of other partisan opponents.
