If there is anything I am tired of seeing, and hearing about, it is the “extremes”. Things always seem to be a hard lined between the two apparent
extremes of “Christian Conservative”; a.k.a. “Religious Right”; and the “Liberal (non-Religious, un-Righteous?) Left”. I know as well as
you do that there is a Third Factor, and that is the Common Ground of the Political Middle.
I’d like to hear from those who, like me, understand that the Truth and, more often than not, the most workable solutions to any issue, lay in
neither of the two extremes but somewhere in-between. No, we don’t get attention in the Media, and I guess that is because they find us
“uninteresting”. Well they should, as we remain nearly “scandal-less” and don’t create newsworthy stories of the ilk produced by the Right
and Left. Yet, we represent the most powerful increment of U.S. Politics, as it is, after all, “we” that the other two spend billions trying to
win over. They don’t have a choice in that, as, our non-extremist attitudes and voting policies are what actually elects, and not theirs in the
stand-alone sense. At the same time, both ‘sides’ allude to the idea that we have “no anchor”. That puzzles me, when I consider that, at
least, my own Anchor is firmly placed in both the Truth, and in doing what is best for American Freedom and Individual Liberty.
I think it’s high time we spoke out on these issues from our place here in the middle of the road—the only place where one can clearly see both
sides. What do you think?
