Does having principles and convictions mean you are an extremist?

As the two sides get ready for the fight over Judge Alito, Democrats with their seeming dependence on the notion that truth is relative.  Then when somebody comes along who believes there is absolute truth, they are labeled as an extremist.  Reminds me of what U.S. Sen. Barry Goldwater said in 1964:

  • Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice; moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.
  • Barry Goldwater
    US politician  (1909 -  )

    Do political parties still have platforms of the principles which they stand for?  Go to their websites.  Did I miss the link?
