Ordinary Independent Citizens Should Not Be Asked to Stand Aside for Rabid Partisan Choices

Phil Power: Partisanship threatens public confidence (Livingston Daily - MI) So he seems to be saying that ordinary citizens (otherwise known as independent voters) should simply stand aside while the rabid partisans choose two candidates at either extremes. Then, maybe, the rest of us might be allowed to pick between the two. That's not my idea of democracy. What worked so well for years was the acceptance of the necessity of compromise.
