Always funny to me how we view each other.


Those on the left view conservatives as "far right" or "extremists". Some who sit right of center see those on the left as "far out of step with the mainstream" or "extreme" in their views.


Just oddly funny to me.

That Mass. healthcare thing has been a real thing of beauty, too.

I disagree with you, but I'm pretty sure

No, that's not what I said. I know plenty of conservatives who are neither "far right" nor "extremists."

I did not say that you said that.


I was simply noting what I felt was a common notion among the two sides, as we so typically seem to view things...and not necessarily between you and me, but between all of us.

I was just pointing out that I don't think it is a common notion at all.

~ People probably voted for him due to his notoriety.. ~

I have to say, this surprises me given that so recently he was almost elected president, run on the Republican ticket.

Is Hayworth that much better than he'd be? I haven't been following this, so not arguing just interested.

Understood. As an outsider, I find that - while your issues are more polarized than here - like here many people are neither extreme to one side or the other.
