There are more cliffs in America's future because of extremist political warfare in Washington.

For years the Republican Party and its member in the House and the Senate have refused to engage in honest debate and compromise. The most radical Republicans are the Tea Party variety and they must be voted out of office in the 2014 mid-term elections by middle-of-the-political-road voters - Republicans, independents and Democrats alike. It will result in a Congress that will make its top priority the issues that are best for the majority of Americans, not any party's political agenda. The greatest threat to America are those elected officials who are the puppets of the extreme left- and right-wing zealots.

Moderates are the ones who can end the crippling stonewalling in both houses of Congress.
