Re: AOC Calls Roosevelt’s “New Deal” Racist

The current extremism is the political system responding to people who vote on party lines and the unwillingness of the electorate to "waste a vote" on a third party.

People who always vote the same party, their vote and interests do not matter. The other party will be unable to recruit them, and their own party is already counting their votes in the bag. They are baseline, irrelevant.

Therefore the people who need to be recruited to get enough votes are the independents and the extremes. Independents tend to be highly educated and discerning with their votes, and are a hard vote to win. Extremists are dummies whose votes can be bought by disingenuously pandering to their individual extremes. Since extreme votes are the easier of the two to get, and all votes are equal regardless of the intelligence/education/knowledge of the candidates of the person casting them, he that panders to the most extremes wins the game.
