Mary Hansen Posted almost 2 years ago Where is America's centre (center) party? What does 'centrist' mean? Does it mean keeping all of the people's needs in mind and balancing all needs? Political parties are, by definition, creators of division and divisiveness. Red, blue. Who's who? There is NO party that can be anything but partisan. This party-based political system is broken; not able to be repaired. Can we think outside of the box and imagine a system where each person has to know the issues and vote based on their own assessment of the situation, rather than relying on their party platform? Is that what Robert means by independent? Where once a decision is made everyone supports it as if it were their own idea and does not subvert the decision because it was not their own? Where forming a bond of unity with all people is desirable? This would not be Utopia. It is called the necessary evolution of humankind and was proposed by a Persian sage over 100 years ago and is in operation in communities all over the world..
