I am not seeing much of a continuum. I am see a very sharp dividing line these days. On just about every issue people in general lean one way or the other. Very few people are in between. I am amazed by just how polarized people are. I think a truly thinking public would be less polarized. Instead I think most Americans are being lead by the nose by the mass media and their professors in school. I don't believe there is much thinking going on.

Sorry, but those who arn't thinking support compromise with this Administration. Both parties have been drifing left for decades, but the democrats have been so blatant that some folks who understand economics, numbers, debt, the nature of government, history, our constitution, the Federalist Papers finally woke up and have said enough is enough.

In politics, truth-telling can get you into trouble, even if you stumble upon it by accident. Just ask Rep. Allen West (R-FL).

West is feeling the heat for a pregnant pause he took during a town hall meeting after he was asked "What percentage of the American legislature do you think are card-carrying Marxists or International Socialists?"

"It's a good question," West responded, "I believe there's [sic] about 78 to 81 members of the Democrat Party who are members of the Communist Party. (Long pause) "They don't actually hide. It's called the Congressional Progressive Caucus." The left became unhinged.

Obviously West...
