And we all know that's never going to happen.
I would say that the problem applies to both sides. There are moderate liberals who are drowned out by the people who shout the loudest on the loberal side as well.

WE had this discussion at a meeting the other day. People were shout loudly about problems, and changes were made to fix the 'problem'. It turns out the people shouting were waaaaaayyyyy in the minority and the change actually rocked the boat more than helping things. The change was undone.

But unfortunately for more fair-minded conservatives, the ultra-right faction is the loudest, and plenty of people--even myself at one time, though I hope not anymore--still think of *all* conservatives in this manner.
I feel the same way about the openminded liberals. Unfortunately both sides are dominated by extremes.

Now where is my bible and my shotgun!!!! HEHE I am kidding!
