Oh, Chunky, you're running yourself ragged trying to decide where the middle is and for some reason you think it's a bad place to be.

The nation has divided itself into two factions.
For the sake of convenience let's call these two factions Right and Left.
Red Team and Blue Team, Conservatives and Liberals....Republicans and Democrats.

You seem pretty sure that there is a third team. There isn't.

Only two.

Yin and Yang.

Good coffee, good weed, and time on my hands...
