I read recently that Moderates don’t have much influence because they are not passionate about issues. While there is some truth to this, I also think it is fair to say that those on the far left and right are mostly passionate about Red Herrings, and that their passion is distracting them (and the Nation) from the real issues that affect us.
I also believe that Moderates are just about fed up with the Right and the Left, and are about to come out of their slumber and be heard. Across all types of media, there is more and more commentary against the negativism we are constantly bombarded with, and the fact that there is no real dialog, only dogma and rhetoric.
So, let’s be passionate:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
Let’s start by being nice to each other, and then let’s take a real look at the problems of this Country and try and find solutions to them. Let’s be politely insistant and keep asking politicians the same questions until they actually give us an answer. And let’s be passionate about preserving this nation for those yet to come.
