That’s right: Independents Day. Centrists and other unaligned, unaffiliated, undogmatic thinkers can now whoop it up and honk their noisemakers like certified extremists. Because today marks the official re-launch of The New Moderate in its new home.
Why the hoopla over a lateral move from Blogger to WordPress? Because now The New Moderate is a full-fledged, multi-page web site. Yes, you can still read our entertaining and provocative three-way debates on The Issues (“Righty,” “Lefty” and The New Moderate each have their say). But now you can stroll through our New Moderate Hall of Fame (yep, we enshrined Nixon) and chuckle at our Hit List (enemies to the right and left of us!). I’ll also be contributing regular blog posts that should stir the passions of every thinking moderate. (Be sure to look for my Extremist Outrage of the Week.)
Just as important, you can read about our vital mission as moderates, holding down the fort of reason while rabid extremists battle it out all around us. I’ve even supplied us with a seven-step action plan for taking over the world! (Well, more or less.)
Today marks the new beginning of our quiet moderate revolution — a long-needed movement that will forever erase the image of moderates as timid, noncommittal nonthinkers who shy away from controversy. Jump into the fray with your own comments… trade opinions with other independent thinkers… and help make the world safe for commonsense ideas that serve the common good.
Ideologies are for people who can’t think for themselves. We can do better.
