    Default Clint Eastwood quote

    This quote by Clint Eastwood from "Time" just fits our forum so well, vbg.

    "Extremism is so easy. You've got your position, and that's it. It doesn't take much thought. And when you go far enough to the right, you meet the same idiots coming around from the left."

    A very good quote. Middle left and middle right are easy to banter with. They give and take. It makes for good conversation. Extreme left and extreme right do not banter. They belittle if you do not agree with their exact point. Any variation is meant with an insult.

    I like Eastwood, but he missed the target on this one. We all know that all Democrats consider anyone who disagrees with them as 'far right loons'! So if you are one of those so called 'moderate Republicans' time to wake up and notice that you too are a 'far right loon' according to all Democrats including the massive liberal press!

    Sorry to break this to you all.....!

    Summed up quite succinctly. Nice to see others recognize this, too. It is evident here and everywhere. There are those who can respectfully agree to disagree and those who refuse to acknowledge the premise of another's argument. It is easy to swallow up what a guy wants to hear. It takes intellectual maturity to question what you think you know and accept that sometimes you are wrong.

    Oh, well. Surely there is room in this life for we rational cerebral contemplative middle-of-the-road moderates. Though admittedly, not in the Democrat party.
