We need moderates

Lee HendrickBreckenridge

You have reason to be scared, Robert Cooper, but not totally for the reasons that you have described.You have pointed out part of the problem with American politics, but I emphasize, only part of the problem. Besides the scary left wingers there are the millions of right wing religious lunatics that helped reelect one of the most abysmal presidents in U.S. history. Not only did the President engage us in a war for which there was no rational explanation, he ignored terrorist warnings prior to Sept. 11 and continues to deny the morass of the Iragi conflict. He alone is one of the biggest threats to world peace. The threats that he presents to internal policy and ecology are beyond description. For the first time since I started voting in 1964 I was unable to vote for the Republican candidate for President. Notice that I did not say that I voted for the Democratic candidate. It was not the choice of the lesser of two evils. They were both equally evil!The two party system as it is currently structured no longer serves the best interests of the country. We need the moderates, I don’t care if they are Republican or Democratic, to band together and force the radical fringes of both left and right out into the twilight zone where they belong.
