Centrists Worth Supporting!

John Avalon has a great article about centrist candidates worth supporting.

But let's put our finger on the crux of the problem, the real reason why centrists are better for the country than conservatives or liberals: between them, right and left, Republicans and Democrats, have ripped the Declaration of Independence in half.  The right has grabbed the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness as its rallying cry, the left has grabbed the appeal to justice, fairness and equality.  The two party system creates a standoff: it's liberty vs. humanity.  

But America needs ALL these founding values if it is to thrive and survive as the founders intended.  Only Centrists care about these values equally. They put humpty-dumpty back together again.

All these guys really should get together and form the American Centrist Party, and expose Republicans and Democrats for the unbalanced extremists they are.

Also, while reading up on centrism, David Brooks has a great article about what it takes to lead and make laws that win support across party lines .

CNN iReporters describe why they call themselves "independent."
