Read an op-ed about how we need a new party that's in between the right-wing extremism that is now mainstream in the GOP and the left-wing extremism that exists, if at all, on the fringes of the Democratic Party.
We already have one of those. It's called the Democratic Party.
@KelsonV I used to be slightly left of center and have never been a member of any political party. 20 years ago I almost always mixed my votes among moderate to left-ish Democrats and moderate Republicans.
Then the GOP went hard right. They started calling people like me "leftists" and "socialists." It's gotten to the point that I believe them. My recent votes reflect that.
I'm not going in circles, although the US as a whole is. The GOP pushed me left.
