    Will the U.S. ever find a happy medium?

    Members on both side of the political spectrum continue to become both even more "extreme" in their views, as well as cemented into their position with no tolerance to try and understand the opposite. Meanwhile, those in the middle are left with their heads spinning trying to figure out how to get rid of both "extremist factions". What do think the final outcome will be? Reconciliation and Peace, more violence, Civil War II?

    I think, and hope, the silent majority will continue to become more and more involved, the majority being neither extreme. The majority of the public will hold elected officials to what they were put in office for. Thing is, this needs to be kept up, or else the situation reverts to two extremes again.

    It could turn bloody I suppose.  Stranger things have happened.  It does seem to be getting worse, but a quick study of American history shows that there were times that were much more polarized and we survived all of them - so far.  If we ever find a happy medium, I'm quite sure we wouldn't stay there for much longer than 5 minutes.  The polarization comes from deeply held beliefs on both sides that are unlikely to change much.  My two cents.

    We have to because we cannot continue on the path we are at the rate of spending we are doing at the present...it is a direct path to disaster. Realistically, we cannot go completely in the other direction either because there are too many programs which people have paid their hard earned money into and they deserve to be serviced. Thus, the middle ground is all that is left and we must find it soon. WB
