The point being made was that conservatives seem to see the world in absolutes. Moderates do not.

There are 2 sides to every story and both need to be considered before determining an appropriate course of action. People with strong opinions often fail to fully understand how they have formed their opinions and they also fail to re-examine them - often continuing with losing strategies.

I am not worried about how people view me, but I am worried about how I view myself.
But didn't you know? Morality has no place on the battlefield! </sarcasm>

I agree with you 100% (I can thank my liberal university education and minor in philosophy for that! ).
