Wheelan proposes a new party, the Centrist Party, which takes the best ideas of Democrats (social progressiveness, concern for the disadvantaged) and the best ideas of Republicans (fiscal conservatism, awareness of the limits of government intervention) and combines them with a willingess to compromise on values where reasonable people can differ (abortion, guns). I think most moderate Democrats and most moderate Republicans will support most of the positions he takes.
Wheelan then goes on to outline a plan where four or five Centrist Party senators can win elections in swing states, become the swing voters in the Senate, and essentially run the country. Audacious. But it might just work. It would bring sanity and compromise back to American politics, which has become dysfunctionally partisan and unable to tackle important issues effectively these last fifteen years.
Please visit the Centrist Party's website. If you support the positions (and I'm confident most moderates will), then do something about it. Sign up for the newsletter, donate, and promote it any way you can. This is a movement that has the potential to accomplish great things. I can honestly say that this is the first political movement I have come across that I have been truly enthusiastic about.
