America needs a new mainstream party. The party is over for the Republicans---for a while at least. To provide them with a long, long study vacation about the realities of the 3rd millennium we will propose the Radical Party to take its place. We are Progressive--that means that if we are sending our best sons and daughters overseas to fight and see their comrades get wounded and killed we sure as hell better be working to make America a better place. That means progress! And even if there weren't any wars, we'd die of boredom if we weren't working hard to re-invent America into a little bit better place than it was in the 'good ol' days' of our partisan memories. We are also Centrist. That means that each of us seek to be in what is to each of us the center of their political existence--not fighting to dominate, not perverting our souls to make political game points. Centrist also means that we reject the insulting phrases about "restoring the Constitution" because WE THE PEOPLE ARE THE CONSTITUTION and we will amend the written document thereof as necessary in lexically parsimonious language that makes our American Covenant to be alive on paper and in our hearts equally. Centrist also means that We, the People shall commit to each other so that no one shall be made destitute or despairing by our Governing Acts unless some person is engaged in perniciously evil and anti-social acts, and in such cases we shall act with deliberation, always trying to offer an ameliorative path to the best we know how. In concert with the aforesaid motive we commit to the idea that a person's freedom is bound up in a person's "pursuit of happiness"and vice versa; That knowledge and behavior of and on behalf of this intra-relationship is a process of growth that belongs to each Person. The intelligence of each Person is made Matter by the voluntary participation of that Person in Community. Let this new outburst of political creativity and community start here in the early months of 2013.
