  • Future Generations Will Blame Both Parties for our Debt Mess
    Future Generations Will Blame Both Parties for our Debt Mess $20,606,283,131,868. As of the time of this writing, that is the current United States national debt. In the time it took me to write that sentence, that number grew by about $100,000. To many people, this number is an abstract figure, that is of no real value or importance; and while often discussed casually, our nation’s debt is an immensely complicated and opaque subject. ...

  • Introducing: Unite America
    As we enter 2018, our movement is on the precipice of making a transformational impact on our increasingly dysfunctional and divided political system.   Together, over the last year, we have laid a strong foundation by recruiting extraordinary independent leaders to run for office and building an unprecedented infrastructure to support them.   As our effort grew and evolved, it became clear to us that our name and brand needed to as well. We desired a new identity that strongly reflects our core belief that it’s our unity, and the values we share in common, that has always been the ... (Read More)

  • Why Has Centrist Picked Up a Negative Connotation?
    Why Has Centrist Picked up a Negative Connotation?
