The struggles of a centrist in an age of extremes

It’s been 20 years since I voted for a Republican, and that certainly won’t be changing now, with the party’s nominee a know-nothing conman who spends his days shredding the civic fabric of the nation for the sake of advancing his personal lust for power, wealth, and attention.

But that doesn’t mean that as a centrist I don’t struggle to keep my bearings in the storm that is American politics in 2020. The center is always somewhat hard to hold, but it’s especially challenging today, with full-force partisan gales blowing from both directions. Nothing would be easier, it sometimes seems, than to give in to the gusts and allow myself to be shoved toward one or the other extreme.
