What happened to the middle?

As I look at the various candidates in both parties I become increasingly concerned that there is no middle anymore. On the left are the Democrats who are considered by many to be tree hugging hippies who aren’t in touch with reality. On the right are the Republicans who are considered to be war mongering religious zealots who only care about corporations. To be perfectly honest I think both are accurate.

It worries me that Republicans and Democrats have all but given up on bipartisan politics, just as they did under Bill Clinton. So with a bunch of millionaires “representing” the other 98% of us who don’t have more money than God, what are we to do?
