Inappropriate politics on both sides of the aisle
As we have seen lately, mob rule is scary and ugly, whether it be in the streets of Cairo or the Texas Senate balcony. American politics are in chaos because of extremism. Right Wing conservatives believe, incorrectly, that their ideals are the only right ones, and eventually, the 80 percent who disagree will come over to their side. Meanwhile, leftists believe that the destruction of America by liberals must continue and preferably be accomplished even faster. When will someone form a strong new party to allow reasonable people to become involved in the political theater. Maybe we could give it a wild and crazy name like, say, Moderates.
