The fiscal cliff is a term that describes the retirement of the Bush tax cuts and forced spending cuts baked into the budgeting agenda for the government. To deal with it properly we need to do several things. First, set aside our personal bias and second, set aside our politics. We, America, is in a bind and we need to work together to get back into safer economic territory.

How to Build a Swift Boat: Deficit Spending
by John P. Reisman published Oct 27, 2012 last modified Oct 28, 2012 11:30 PM
Ads that appeal to our patriotism are hard to ignore. Centrists and Centrism, like other political ideals, hold to particular values, have hero's, have convictions about how we examine the data. The perspective of the Centrist Party is based on evidence. Centrism strongly supports the tenets of traditional conservatism as well as responsibility models held from more centrist democratic concerns. Modern Republicans/neo-conservatives are too liberal in their support for corporatism that feeds corporate socialism, as opposed to supporting the principle of government of the people, by the people, for the people. And the Democratic Party is too liberal in its 'ideals' about how much the government can do or spend on these ideals. Centrism remains about pragmatic and well reasoned consideration of facts within the context of short AND long-term consequences.
