Letters: Where is political middle ground?

Sherman Brown

I am amazed by some of the letters to this newspaper. So many of the liberal commentators believe they are in the middle of the political spectrum. They accuse the GOP of being far right wing.

The Democratic vice presidential candidate in 2000 has been kicked out of his party. None of the present Democratic candidates came to his defense.

The political spectrum is not a straight line. It is actually a circle. If you go to far in either direction you meet on the other side. This explains left and right wing dictators.

No matter where you are on the spectrum everyone assumes they are in the middle.

This is because they cannot see over their horizon.
