Well, it hasn't been created yet

An ad with just all the far right and far left conspiracies that the loudest of them say.


Simple tag line, do you really want these voices be the ones who decides your future?  Get out and vote.

Can’t wait to see it.  Sounds like something I’ll like a lot.

Seriously. I wish they’d run that in the last set of primaries.

Give us candidates who are:

* fiscally conservative;
* socially libertarian;
* believe in a safety net and giving others a hand up;
* are strong advocates of racial justice and equality;
* believe strongly in the Constitution, but also believe that vexing social issues should be handled at the state level

Roy, I never knew you were a Democrat!

OK, I'm kind of joking. But I do think that's awfully close the mainstream of the D party. Probably the biggest difference is that Ds are more likely to believe that protecting individual liberty requires taking a few of the more vexing social issues out of local politics.

lovely starting points.  only one of concern is the last bullet --> not to go down the rabbit hole on this here but 'vexing' would need some clarification and assurances that laws across different states weren't wildly different if the 'vexing' issue is considered a 'right' or "non-right" by most American citizens currently.

I guess a lot depends on where you put your attention. If you look at the fringes of both parties, you will find them. If you look at the center of each party - the weight of authority, where the power to write and enforce laws is actually decided - to me the Rs have gone way, way far to the right on economics and government.  Paul Volcker - Ronald Reagan's Fed chair - is out with a book on this point.

What are the big problems we face? Global warming. Healthcare. The budget. The Democrats' solutions may not be perfect, but at least they have been trying and are largely reality-based. The Rs are off in fantasyland. Eight years of moaning about the ACA, they get in power and offer... ? Nothing. They say they want to protect people with pre-existing conditions - while they sponsor a lawsuit asking courts to invalidate that protection. It's shameful. They pretend that massive, multi-trillion dollar tax cuts will pay for themselves.

This country badly needs a constructive conservative party to balance the liberals and it hasn't got one.

I think what Roy wrote is perfect. I’m not 100% aligned, but it shows with crystal clarity that most Americans are more alike than different.  Yes, there are differences, but by starting with common values, we start with our unified base (foundation) and build with mutual respect from there — ironing out differences, finding consensus, compromising when we can, and abiding by (acceptance of) majority when we have to. 

Go middle! Go balance!

Maybe the thing missing is a 3rd party

Yeah -- I'm good with that.   But Independent would be my preference... not Green or Libertarian... or Bull Moose....

I think a guy like Mass. Governor Charlie Baker could lead the new Moderate Party to success. I'm liberal but Charlie is getting my vote.

Yes to a 3rd party...no to Socialism. I would love an independent who could bring people together. Someone most people would respect and follow. Of course both parties would never work that kind of leader as it does not serve their purpose to support someone not tied to themselves. Sad but true.

My state is already taking a step towards  that route with a tax amendment that only targets those making 150k and over plus all small busineses and it supposedly has overwhelming support of households not at 150k...plan is to double taxes on higher brackets and have taxes pay for everyone’s kids education( going to public schools supposedly)....this is on ballot this year and will most likely pass. Not sure I agree with increasing taxes for  companies who hire workers in state and making a segment of working class pay for everyone elses kids education. Our state is about to go from a top 5 friendly tax state to a top 8 worst friendly states like my former state of California. I also am not a fan of paying for a school system I have no kids within. My extra money goes to charities I believe in and dont want to be forced into putting it in places that are not high on my list. Bernie is throwing his weight behind this proposition as well. Socialism is one form of government I could never get behind. It is slowly seaping into politics in our country.....
