Why I fear for America’s future

Sometimes I come across a comment on WordPress that makes me want to weep for the future of America. Today I came across a post where the author said:

“that our President who has done everything in his power to be conciliatory and has been by all accounts a moderate” (source)

This level of ignorance makes me fear that it is too late for America. When the most left leaning president since LBJ is considered a “moderate” I weep. When the most divisive president since Woodrow Wilson is considered “conciliatory” I weep.

If someone creates a political scale that uses Barack Obama as the middle of the scale JFK would look like a right wing radical. That person will never be able to have an honest discussion on politics, they are too far gone.
