What happened to moderates?

     What happened to moderates? While I respect people with different opinions, I don't want to see right-wing nut or left-wing nut postings. I'm missing people with moderate views in both politics and religion. Both entities should welcome EVERYONE. We are all the same.
     For those who don't know, right wing politicians and religious christian (not all) Extremists (who have hijacked Christianity, sadly) have been preventing our country from maturing and growing in several ways: The Republican party continues to de-fund science, education and technology (they just voted against railway funding again). SADLY - The U.S. used to lead the world before the Congress became more right-wing. Now our students can't compete, our industry is way behind that of Japan and Europe, and the U.S. has little to offer. Both groups have also continued to decimate my right and the rights of others to be married. (The same thing was happening in Ireland, but they don't put up with the extremists).
     This morning someone posted "we are a Nation Under God." Actually, the U.S.is NOT one nation under God. The founding fathers specifically stated that church and state are two separate entities and should never be together. If you think otherwise, look at what it has done for the middle east. .

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
