The “Disappearance of Centrist Moderates”

Samuel Scott has an interesting post about how strange and crazy the extreme polarization of politics in our country has become. A sample:

The mer­its of an issue is what mat­ters — not which side, politi­cian, or media out­let agrees with the issue. George W.

The main idea is that each per­son should weigh the pros and cons of each issue and decide for him­self based only on that criteria.
