June 28, Illinois Republican Primary for Governor.

We are mostly concentrating on the primaries for the U.S. Senate, but we are occasionally endorsing candidates in the House races and a few notable races for governor. The Illinois Republican primary for Governor is an interesting opportunity to pull the Republican Party back from Trumpism, by voting against the Trump backed candidate. The Democratic … Continue reading June 28, Illinois Republican Primary for Governor.

June 28, Colorado Democratic and Republican Primary Endorsements

Colorado presents some interesting dilemmas for Centrist Independent Voters. Because Colorado allows “unaffiliated registrants” (a large voting block) to vote in either party’s primary, it provides an interesting illustration of the Centrist Independent Voter strategy. To put it as succinctly as possible we suggest: prune the field of extremists. We view this as far more … Continue reading June 28, Colorado Democratic and Republican Primary Endorsements

“Galactically Stupid” Policy Ideas

The Centrist Independent Voter publishes a Rogues Gallery of candidates that we view as so extreme that we would never endorse them. I think it is time for us to publish a list of policy ideas that are so counterproductive that we would never support them. To achieve this august status, a policy proposal has … Continue reading “Galactically Stupid” Policy Ideas

Endorsement for June 7, California Primary for the U.S. Senate Seat.

The California primary for the U.S. Senate seat will be held June 7, 2022. It is an open primary with 20 candidates including Democrats, Republicans, Greens, Socialists, and independents. The top two vote getters, regardless of party, will go on to a general election. You would think that in a field that large the Centrist … Continue reading Endorsement for June 7, California Primary for the U.S. Senate Seat.

Gun Control

The Centrist Independent Voter policy position on gun control supports the Heller decision by the Supreme Court. That decision made it clear that there is a constitutionally protected, individual, right to bear arms. It also clearly states, as President Biden noted last night, that that right is not unlimited. Now that Congress is considering passing … Continue reading Gun Control

Proposed Addition to Policy Position on Higher Education

A member has suggested an addition to the Centrist Independent Voter policy position on higher education. The suggestion is to make federally financed student debt dischargable in bankruptcy. In addition, in order for students to be eligible for federally financed student loans, their educational institution must agree to reimburse the government for 1/2 of any … Continue reading Proposed Addition to Policy Position on Higher Education

“Price Gouging”: The Futility of Progressive Politics

Elizabeth Warren Seizes the Stage Again Sen. Elizabeth Warren has grabbed the spotlight with another foolish idea: price controls. She calls it “Anti-Price Gouging.” Why are Price Controls Bad? Those of you, who are old enough, will remember waiting in line, for hours sometimes, to fill up your gas tank in the late 1970’s. Why … Continue reading “Price Gouging”: The Futility of Progressive Politics

Rogues Gallery of Political Candidates

We have added 11 U.S. Senators to the Centrist Independent Voter group of candidates that we are unlikely to ever endorse. We call this group the Rogues Gallery. The new additions to the group include the 11 U.S. Senators who opposed the current proposed aid package for Ukraine. To see the full list of U.S … Continue reading Rogues Gallery of Political Candidates

Endorsement in the 2022 Kentucky U.S. Senate Primaries

We were not originally planning on making endorsements in the Kentucky primaries because the race is not viewed as competitive. Rand Paul’s egregious decision to delay desperately needed aid to Ukraine for no other apparent purpose than to gain some media attention changed our minds. Unfortunately, Kentucky is a closed primary state, so you are … Continue reading Endorsement in the 2022 Kentucky U.S. Senate Primaries

Rand Paul and Ukraine Aid

While Ukrainians fight and die to defend freedom from tyranny, Rand Paul struts upon the stage. Rand Paul, single handedly, is delaying military aid to Ukraine so that he may grab some media attention. This prima donna reminds me of the “America First Committee” who resisted U.S. assistance to Britain as Britain was being attacked … Continue reading Rand Paul and Ukraine Aid
