#!markdown Meh, I'm getting used to living in a time when the identical information can be absolutely true and absolutely false at the same time. What's funny is some polls show that the vast majority of America is as dominantly sane as ever it's just the outliers keep getting louder, more concentrated, and more vitriolic. The average, middle ground voices just aren't heard above the simple sound bytes of dominant majorities in the age of mass media. If you really want to influence public opinion what choice do you have but to stake an outlier opinion and yell as loudly as the other guy in hopes of a resultant middle ground you can both happily/unhappily live with.
