Politically Motivating The Moderate Majority:
The Art of The Possible
Are you a Democrat or a Republican or a member of a powerless Independent Party?
Is it possible to have an effective political voice not bound by group-think?
In this era of partisan domination of virtually all media how can moderate voices be heard above the din of the self-serving, power hungry wolves-in-sheep‘s-clothing on all “sides” of every debate?
Partisans, Left and Right, seem far more concerned with securing and maintaining power than with serving any public duty.
Their interests are not in problems solved, or compromises reached; a polarized and hostile populace is their goal; indeed, a full-blown “Culture War” is their promised land.
The partisans of the Left and Right profit from a black and white worldview; they prefer the public, especially moderates, to see the political world like this:
This polarized viewpoint causes a distortion in the efforts of the various moderate pundits and politicians; mis-aiming their marketing efforts thusly:
Reality however does not conform to partisan convenience; this graphic more accurately reflects the spectrum nature of the body politic.
The problem with moderate marketing is that most of the effort is spent on a politically mushy middle; too uncommitted, too uncaring or just too eager to see all sides to ever take any side.
This graphic displays a more effective allocation for moderates; Citizens of BOTH parties who are on the independent side of the mainstreams are more likely to vote and seek a more potent political voice; most not being satisfied with the “party-Line”.
Sometimes a simple paradigm shift can make the difference between a slow defeat and a driving victory.
The question is, will moderates squander their efforts on an ineffectual “middle” or spend their bucks where the bang is, at the middle edge of BOTH parties.
