What does it mean for America
Congress is left or right, and all bills suffer or gain from the tug of war between the parties. By building a strong foundation for Centrist views, we can bring a common sense perspective to the argument that is much more likely to yield workable solutions for the long term.
Common Sense Solutions
By giving the center a strong foundation we enable solutions for the nation that can reach across both sides of the aisle. We can present arguments and ideas that encompass the most reasonable views from Democrats, Republicans and Independents, as well as Centrist America, and form solutions that work better for the people and the nation.
The American people are asking why doesn’t our government use common sense? People can see it isn’t working.
Without a Centrist Party we are bound by the extremes. Even though many politicians consider themselves Centrist (usually only during election campaigns), they are still tied to their constituents, party platforms, special interests and personal agendas.
The Centrist position enables solutions that reach across the boundaries.
What this means in policy considerations is that although all arguments are considered, proposals that are unduly biased or don’t make sense, will get less attention. Awareness of “common sense”, as a rule of thought, so to speak, may increase the application of pragmatism considerate of the good of the nation in daily decisions.
