Whenever I sat down and wrote my last post, I strayed a little from my original idea. I was going to highlight the ideological inconsistency prevalent in both of the major parties. Instead, I wrote on units and methods of measuring the centrist demographic. So, because my brain won’t let it go, I am obliged to you to explain the lack of coherence in today’s political discourse.
To recap last week, I kicked off my analysis of the two most recent organizations to form under a non-partisan flag; No Labels and The Centrist Project. In the first installment, I tried to give you a feel for the shared vision that brings them together and the wholly independent strategies they’re taking to achieve it. This week, I’ll be breaking apart each organization’s agenda, outlining their most critical ideas for political reform, and grouping like items to arrive at a comprehensive, and definitively non-partisan, reform agenda.
