The person is for certain, not a moderate. Liberal republican, possibly. Democrat posing as ‘moderate republican’, possibly.

The sad thing is that this person likely thinks herself (assuming female) a deep thinker. Though she won't admit it, she's more concerned that she's espousing ideas and beliefs that mirror those of the groups she wants to think highly of her. All the really cool people on TV think this way, and would be super impressed that she's a "Republican" who "saw the light".

Well in excess of 2,000 words of pure, unadulterated pop-PC.

Yup. These are the kind of people that try to find a middle ground between right and wrong. They are completely shaped by the media. They will never espouse an opinion that hasn’t been thoroughly screentested to oblivion, and they consider them “above” us troglodytic ideologues simply because they never had a conviction about anything in their life except for their favorite band.

These are all stupid, but to defeat Pres. Obama, we have to be able to calmly explain why these are wrong and to explain how we have better ideas. I have acquaintances who think the same and are resistant to logic, math and history, but I keep on plugging away. At the very least, I've created doubt, and maybe I've got a couple to switch their votes or at least stay home.

Know your enemy!

A true moderate would not blather on for so long. And, a
real moderate would include a modicum of criticism of the
other side.

When liberals make hard left turns and conservatives predictably
stand their ground it is always the conservatives who are accused
of becoming radical. Those who believe this are called liberal, not
moderate.

I believe El Rushbo would refer to this person as a “Seminar Caller”.

“Yup. These are the kind of people that try to find a middle ground between right and wrong.”

Guess I’m in a quote mood ... Ayn Rand said this best, you said it fine.

“In any compromise between food and poison, it is only death that can win. In any compromise between good and evil, it is only evil that can profit.”

In my experience, most Libs profess to be moderates. I think they even believe that.

A “moderate” is just another name for a fence-sitter, a middle-of-the-roader and a wishy-washy fantasizer who thinks that “everyone is really good deep down inside”.

I, a woman, will solemnly agree. It is sad, but many girls are taught such gross materialism/secularism/irrationality that there is not a brain left in their bleached little heads when they reach adulthood. So many women “think” like the ladies on the ‘View”, which is not at all. It is all emotion-—non-rational “feelings”. If they pick up a book at all, which most don’t, it has no substance whatsoever.

Your friend epitomizes the essence of the word “schmuck”.

I don’t understand why this friend hasn’t been downgraded to acquaintance en route to stranger status.

Life is too short and too filled with survival critical issues to further endure crap such as this.

It’s time to cut this particular cord.

...and I am perfectly ready and willing to continue to listen to all pleas and plans...

Wow! And I am perfectly ready and willing to bash this idiot's head against a brick wall after only a few lines of reading.

Consider this a bump until a time ever occurs that I have calmed down enough to continue reading.

Congratulate your friend on achieving the perfect, zen blending of self-righteous and stupid.

This was written by no Republican. There ability of this person to percieve reality is severely impaired. This individual would have us believe that the (not capitalized on purpose) is full of dangerous Timothy McVeighs and “the rise of right wing hate groups has grown one hundred fold” is a fact and not her personal Brown Shirt Media fed delusion. She is able to maintain this delusion by supporting folks like Zero and the CLintons while completely ignoring the “game plans” these folks are pursuing as outlined by Cloward and Piven and Saul Alinsky and others. I would question this individual’s intelligence. What else in their life have they accomplished that would make you believe they are a functionaing, rational person?

Quite right and the most elegant answer I have ever seen to respond to folks like this in power was articulated concisely by Ayn Rand. Go Galt. They can’t build their delusional dystopia without our money. Pound sand.
