I enjoy disabusing the naive of their illusions. .... Claiming to be a moderate at any thing at this age is living your life with the goal not to offend anyone.
how untrue you are ... and to be perfectly frank about it. It's the reason your party is no longer a force in American politics.
Moderation is, by definition, in this context, is to not to go to any extreme so as to alienate or force a situation that in essence, need not be forced.
There are , however, many situations that need extreme measures.
The country is not run on extremes, nor is any one persons life.
If you run on extremes, you won't last very long.
You have finally hit Bottom.... 'line'
