Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

Leaving the Left

Keith Thompson explains why he has left "the house the left has built." A paragraph, but the whole thing is worth reading:

I’m leaving the left -- more precisely, the American cultural left and what it has become during our time together.

I choose this day for my departure because I can no longer abide the simpering voices of self-styled progressives -- people who once championed solidarity with oppressed populations everywhere -- reciting all the ways Iraq’s democratic experiment might yet implode.

Thanks to Arts & Letters.

Dr. Schramm, thank you again for another interesting post. This does outline a great deal of what is wrong with the extreme left. I find myself bouncing back and forth between the parties and what I think is right and wrong. This may become a major factor as both parties (in my opinion) seem to be moving further and further to either side. I read blogs on both the left and right and they crucify members of their own party that act moderatly. We seem to be moving toward an even more polarized society, which leaves many in the middle very confused as to which side we agree with. I only hope that we as Americans start working toward goals rather than "beating" the other political team.
