Dear Mr. Levy,
I am an "independent", former Republican voter. One of the reasons I made the move was because I am increasingly uncomfortable associating with extremists of ALL stripes, Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, you name it.
I think you are doing yourself a disservice by engaging in sophmoric name calling. "Socialist", "Trotskyite", "fellow traveler",...what next? Communists?
Our country needs men and women of vision and reason who can recognize that the country is made of people with legitimately differing opinions. What I expect, what I demand, from my elected representatives is that they work out a solution that incorporates the best ideas, no matter who authors them. What is not acceptable is that they engage in high-school cliquishness and name calling. It's hard to see past this kind of childish behavior to the legitimate points you ae trying to make.
Please read the article "Civility Crisis" by Joyce Reehling in this same issue.
