What it Means to be a Centrist Republican
Centrists come in several kinds of packaging. There’s Centrist Democrats (a group we hear too little from). There’s plain ole Centrists like the writers here (defined by our status as having no party affiliation). And then there’s Centrist Republicans (a surprisingly common but increasingly agitated bunch).
What do Centrist Republicans believe? Well, Dennis Sanders over at the Moderate Republican has published part one of his Moderate Republican Manifesto. The three points discussed:
Centrist Republicans believe in fiscal responsibility
Centrist Republicans believe in a strong economy and a strong environment. The two are not mutually exclusive.
Centrist Republicans believe in diversity and equality.
Dennis provides one of the strongest voices in the blogosphere for moderate Republicans. And this is a great post.
