Until the democratic party realizes that the middle is nowhere, that’s where they’ll be. The poll-hugging wimps who’ve run the party out of the White House continuously make the same mistake. On a road, traffic goes in 2 directions. The median, or neutral ground as we call it in New Orleans, does nothing. And that’s why democrats continue to lose–they are going nowhere and doing nothing, trying to avoid polarizing. The reality is they need to jump into a lane and pull others with them. They need to seize the issues and steal people from the other half to create a majority.
If the middle is where half believe one thing and half another, then it’s not the place to be. Democrats need to boldly and proudly take strong stands and lead people to the side that matters.
