Moderation is for monks (and politicians)

The fictional character Lazarus Long has supposedly said:

"Everything in excess! To enjoy the flavor of life, take big bites. Moderation is for monks."

I have long admired that quotation, but I now feel that politicians should be included with monks. Today's political parties are moving to the extremes of their various beliefs and driving the moderates out, which leaves the electorate with little to choose from other than bad and worse. One has only to look at the Republican race for U.S. Senator in Nevada. The only competition between the candidates is to see who can be the most extreme instead of who will be able to capture the most votes in the general election. Extreme views do NOT represent the voters once an election is over.
