There is a little Democratic angel on everyone’s left shoulder and a little Republican angel on everyone’s right shoulder. Who you are politically on any given day is a result of who is winning the war of words between those two angels.

The true middle ground — the one our Founding Fathers and mothers believed in — is the one on which you do not try to unite around a policy, but rather to unite around how the policies are decided.

The U.S. Constitution’s Article I, Section 8, specifies that “The Congress shall have power to make all laws.” If we agree on that, there is only one more hurdle to overcome. The majority of laws should be made on the state level by the legislatures there.
