About Centrism

Centrism is not about “compromise” or being “moderate”; it is about finding workable solutions to real problems, without the corrosive influence of moneyed special interests or extreme partisan groups. While the objective is not to be in the middle, trying to solve problems and balance legitimate interests, sometimes can result in being in the middle.

The 21st century has brought a host of complex problems that are made worse by the tribal warfare of the two-party system. Centrism gives voice to those who want work toward viable long-term solutions.

Current top priorities include, but are not limited to:

  • Eliminating the inappropriate influence of moneyed special interests by limiting campaign contributions by industry-, corporate-, or union-based Political Action Committees, (PACs).
  • Instituting Instant Run-off Voting (IRV) to replace plurality voting. This will eliminate the wasted vote argument against voting for third-party candidates.

While these may not seem like front-burner issues to many, they are necessary to overcome the forces driving bad decision-making in Washington.

The National Debt is an issue particularly exacerbated by the tribal warfare of two-party system. It is a problem that both Republicans and Democrats have contributed to it when they are in the majority.

Parties like the Modern Whig Party are trying to make a difference by addressing the important issues the professional lobbyists and major party operatives would rather most people not think about.

Centrism is becoming a significant 21st century movement because it focuses on pragmatic solutions, rather than 20th century ideologies. It is a grass roots movement which must succeed if this country is to survive intact and move forward.

    I’m impressed, I need to say. Actually not often do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me let you know, you’ve hit the nail on the head. Your concept is outstanding; the issue is one thing that not enough individuals are speaking intelligently about. I’m very comfortable that I stumbled throughout this in my search for something regarding this.

    Finally I have a philosophical position when evaluating those who do, and those who desire to, govern in this Nation: Thank You for providing a focus for those of us who want to use our minds and not just flow with the crowd,
