    Yanno, I don't believe I've started a thread here before....... But every time I open this one forum, I have had the same question. To wit:

    Is there anyone who hasn't pretty well 'married' themselves to one party's platform or the other? And NO, I'm not looking for the ones who insist our democracy is all a sham.

    Who else is out there willing to cry "A pox on both your fringes!" to the uber-partisans of both flavors?????

    You're not alone. Personally, I think what we saw from the last election was evidence that the bulk of americans are centrists. I doubt that either fringe will see it though.

    Facts are just facts. How you operate a society is a decision, not a fact.

    I can't imagine a more centrist POTUS choice than Mitt Romney.

    the right could not get the people to see policy their way.

    So their plan was to PUSH EVERTHING to the right.


    They did so with lies, big money and election cheating.


    You can win without the people if you cheat and they have done so for decades.


    This means the "center" you speak of is NOT the real center.


    The real center is surrouding the real facts.


    I dont give a fuck where the facts fall in you veiw of whats center or not.


    Im going with the real facts.


    If you are not insane you will join me

    Oh, I need to correct myself: I've started a few threads before, two about animals, two on I/P situations, and one to introduce myself - a few months after I started posting here.

    Note to self: Fact check own history before posting if possible. Ingesting that second cup of strong tea may help awareness......

    Obviously, those who consider themselves 'centrist' are a diverse group.....that can be a positive!

    the word center means nothing if the facts are not used to determine the real situation
