Ok. It seems some of you don’t get it, so, I’ve devised a Self-Exam entitled, “Am I A Moderate?” Ten Easy Questions to see if you’ve been infected.
First though, it’s Purple Dinosaur time.
Here’s a dotted line from Left (L) to Center (C) and the same from C to Right (R).
So now, Politically speaking, can you identify The Middle. Where is America?
Want the answer?
([- This is The Middle; Moderate America -])
L [ C ] R
That’s where we are, just L of CL and just L of CR. Socially Liberal, Fiscally Conservative, and Tolerant of Others and Supportive of Individual Freedoms.
Are you a Moderate.?
Score one point for each yes.
- Do you regret the necessity for Abortion in any case, but respect that the final decision resides solely with the woman concerned to make that decision, for herself.
- Do you think Contraception is a moral, sensible alternative to unwanted, unplanned pregnancy, and prudent with respect to Sexually Transmitted Disease?
- Do you recognize the need for a federally protected Safety Net for all Citizens, especially during difficult financial times?
- Do you believe that “God” has a place in our lives in some way, but there is only one Big G in Government?
- Do you agree that Freedom of Speech guarantees that you have to listen to all sorts of crap, even your own?
- Do you agree to surrender all your guns immediately after taking your last breath of air?
- Do you share pride in being an Immigrant member of an Immigrant Nation, no matter how long your family has been here?
- Do you listen to the message of your opposition and give it appropriate weight and consideration?
- Do you try your very best to place and maintain principle above all else?
- Do you agree that when aggrieved by someone, you should delay response long enough to establish whether or not the offense was intended, and then, respond appropriately?
So, are you….infected?
