If you answered, “No”, to most of these questions, then maybe I’m not that extreme. We just want what is just.

If you answered, “Yes, you’re too extreme,” to some, but not all, of these questions, then we have some common ground.

All of us must unite over any common ground or the right, who unite in spite of their diverse extremist views, will continue to win.
