This is a blog for the political center. Maybe it’s cliche, but I think it’s pretty clear that the far left and the far right in this country are not pursuing policies that are in America’s best interest. They are serving their narrow bases while dominating the political conversation. Some of this is borne out of the political reality of our current two party system.
However, I believe there are many voices with wonderful, non-partisan ideas. They may lean to the left or the right, but they do not blindly wave the flag for one party or ideology. These are the voices that I hope will become louder. These are the voices that will be highlighted on the Third Rail.
