Which Party Is More Extremist?

Despite the decade long narrative from the Democrats about the Republican Party being extremist, the yammering on about “neocons” and “religious fundamentalists” (BTW, Obama himself would be considered a fundie, since he is a born again Christian), a narrative the Compliant Media were happy to run with, something went wrong (make sure to read the whole article, way too much to excerpt)

Likely voters in battleground districts see extremists as having a more dominant influence over the Democratic Party than the GOP.

This result comes from The Hill 2010 Midterm Election Poll, which found that 44 percent of likely voters say the Democratic Party is more dominated by its extreme elements; whereas 37 percent say it’s the Republican Party that is more dominated by extremists.

The revelations in a survey of 10 toss-up congressional districts across the country point to problems for Democrats, who are trying to motivate a disillusioned base and appeal to independents moving to the GOP ahead of the Nov. 2 election.

Among Independents, it is a 43/37 split. And even 22% of Democrats survey think the Democrat Party is too extremist, versus 11% of Republicans who think the GOP is too far to the right.

The United States is a center-right nation. The People like their taxes low, their military strong, their government out of their lives. The want law and order, they want their government to listen and be responsive. They also like their social programs. Bush, for all his faults, was really about the perfect American president. Strong on international affairs, kept taxes low, but was big on the social programs.

The story points out that despite the constant drum beat about the TEA Party and other conservatives, painting them as extremists, it is the Democrats who are more dominated by their fringe elements, their folks who want to massively increase government, increase their hold on our private lives, and want to raise taxes, among others. The principles of the Republican Party are more like the principles of the American People. They just have to remember to not forget those principles, as they did under Bush. I doubt the TEA Party will go away after the 2010 mid terms, and will hold the Congress Critters feet to the fire.
