I'm the most conservative/liberal/. . .
A mantra heard mostly from the conservative end of the spectrum. But why? Why don't we here more "I'm more moderatr and can work with the other side to actually govern the U.S." Our government has become frozen and entirely ineffective by the extreme positions of our elected officials and their staunch refusal to compromise.
Perhaps we need to narrow the mesa so, as politicians move ever more to the extreme ends, they fall off the cliff and we are left with moderates who can compromise and actually govern to the benefit of all.
