IT'S TIME TO FIX THE EQUATION.

Our country is on a dangerous trajectory. Our two major political parties are dominated by their most vocal and extreme members, leaving little room for compromise. That’s why we’ve just had the most unproductive Congress in our lifetime. Our nation’s vast challenges are left unsolved. That’s not right.

Most American voters are not that extreme. We've been left behind as our traditional parties moved farther right and left. We do not want to live in an era of partisan extremism and gridlock. The sane, pragmatic majority in America must wrestle the steering wheel of the country away from the extremists on either side.

 

THE PLAN IS SIMPLE.

The Centrist Project is a rapidly growing national force of citizens working to bring real change to real problems. We take the best ideas from both parties and ditch the rest. And, we have a tangible strategy for real change.

It begins by electing five independent, centrist Senators not beholden to the broken parties who, like you, believe fiscal responsibility, economic opportunity, social tolerance and environmental stewardship should come first.

The five who will hold the swing votes on every issue facing the Senate, so neither major party will have the majority.

The five who will work for you, not the parties, pushing Congress to work faster and smarter.

Our nation’s vast challenges are left unsolved. That’s not right. You know that – that’s why you have found us.

How A State Can Prevent 3.2 Million Registered Voters From Voting

On a chilly April day over a hundred protesters gather on the steps of a City Hall and repeatedly chant “Let us vote, let us vote”. You can hear the passion in the protesters voices but you can also sense a silent acknowledgement among them that they will not be able to cast their vote in the immediate future.

This may seem like a scene from a pre-Civil Rights era or a 1920s suffragette rally but, amazingly, it is not. I watched this happen yesterday in New York.

Mitch McConnell, the Anti-Lincoln

Last week I attended Civil War night at my son's middle school. (It's like a science fair, only all the exhibits illustrate some facet of the Civil War.) While examining a display on the election of 1864, I had an epiphany: Mitch McConnell is the anti-Lincoln. He has presided over the demise of the "party of Lincoln" in part because his behavior is so non-Lincoln-esqe.
