The way I see it is the the "No Labels" folk are still politicians.
Hence, there is still a agenda of some sorts.
I think your post kind of highlights the problem. We all see our personal ideologies as simply "the truth" and the ideologies of everyone else as
We have all been lied to, manipulated and spat upon so often by our leaders, that a genuine attempt at coming together is nearly impossible.
If someone with enough notoriety to get a movement noticed get's involved, they have already been labeled. If someone unknown tries to get something
positive going, nobody will notice.
The solution to this partisan travesty goes to the roots of our system and how we choose our leaders. The very process that places them in office
guarantees they will be corrupt if they actually win. How we get beyond that I can't imagine.
With those of us who are moderate and who consider both sides of issues only making up less than half the population, the partisans have all the
power. People say they are for an end to gridlock and that they want leaders who can compromise, but do they truly mean that? *Me included*.
