Extremism is...

Solving problems.

If you propose a political solution to a problem...if you have a plan for action by government that will make the problem go that the problem isn't significant within the forseeable are an extremist.

Moderate, mainstream political thought is about managing problems. Acknowledging the problem can't be solved, but can be handled appropriately.

E.g: Illegal immigration. Social Security insolvency. Government pork. Corporate bribes to Congress. Foriegn terrorism. Nuclear proliferation. Ballot box fraud. Smog...

I'd like to hear somebody give an example of some national problem we agree can be eradicated within ten years, without losing our sense of proportion, violating our values, playing to the fringe, etc. etc. etc.
