there are only the Right and the Left, and everything in between are simply confused or cowards.

You are ignoring the political reality. There are a vast number of people that don't fit neatly into the left or right, for variety of reasons. Like it or not, that is the group that ultimately decides elections. That's not saying a conservative can't win, only that a conservative also needs moderate support to win.

No. There are only two reasons. Not a "variety". Confusion (stupidty, ignorance, etc) or Cowardice. Take your pick.

But even confused or cowards don't want confused or cowardly leaders.

That's not saying a conservative can't win, only that a conservative also needs moderate support to win.

Which is exactly how Ronald Reagan won in a landslide. He backed the working man. Today, the GOP CFR clan appears to be the enemy of that man and woman.
