Answer: The CP is about sensible administration of the public good without inappropriate influence from special interests.
Hence, the CP is about effective efficient government that addresses the common good as well as state and national needs.
Furthermore: the CP is against campaigns based on undue personal attacks. Especially when they are ambiguous fabrications. However, based on solid evidence, it is fair game to attack candidate positions and the integrity, or lack thereof, in candidate claims. Addressing issues and integrity is a reality of political campaigns. One often can not address one without dealing with the other.
Additionally, we all want candidates of the highest integrity and honor. This includes a candidates grasp of issues and reality. If they are focused on populist statements instead of real issues. Ignore them. All Centrist candidates must be focused on reality, ethics, honor, integrity and meeting the needs of our districts, states, and the nation.
7. Does the CP support Equal Rights?
Answer: The CP supports equal rights and equal access to opportunity in consideration of ability and effort, justice and betterment. Therefore, the CP supports policy that helps achieve these ends, but is generally not in favor of handouts without responsibility. In other words, the CP supports that which returns the greatest benefit for it’s citizens and the country considered together. CP is focused on a fair and equitable playing field. A truly great country can be measured by how equally it embraces, supports and enables equal justice and the rights and opportunity of it’s citizens to prosper.
8. International issues?
Answer: The CP supports policy that protects the individual and common good of The United States of America. Additionally, the CP supports partnership with nations and peoples that support the ideals of equality and justice as achievable. The playing field is always in flux and policy needs to be based on short and long term considerations.
9. Hot button issues?
Answer: The Centrist Party stands on the planks of the platform. Hot button issues are typically used by politicians based on personal or constituent perspectives (often both). Therefore, without full vetting hot button issues will remain in the purview of the candidates. The CP will stand on the founding planks, the law, and fairness in justice.
