The problem is that the "Reasonable Lump In The Middle" is not as passionate as
the fringe lunatics. It's hard to get pumped up about something that seems
completely logical. Know what I mean? It's hard to take a vehement stand when you
understand both sides of the argument. "Let's find a happy medium" is not an
effective battle cry. The extremists will always be louder. We simply have to out
vote them.
