Overview

New Politics is a book of politics and political self-discovery for those who seek progress on the many festering issues that are holding America and Americans back. Regardless of your political affiliation, if you are frustrated with both political parties, the media, and inaction by Congress, New Politics will help you unpack your frustration. You may discover you are really a moderate in your heart—not a conservative or liberal. Reunifying America post 2020 election amid the pandemic, predatory partisan Washington politics, and divisive media is a formidable challenge. New Politics takes that task head on with a provocative look at American politics through a completely different lens than the traditional 'left-right' lens. It introduces an ideology of Moderatism to help you compare your political views and values against Conservatism, Liberalism, and those the author believes define a 21st-century moderate's political core. It asks hard questions and challenges Americans to look squarely at two big blind spots — children's rights and adult political discrimination of children. It prescribes ideas to reunify and rebuild America by taking a hard look at a number of raging left-right debates — abortion, children, climate, debt, education, family, guns, immigration, inequality, jobs, media, racism, and more. It invites those ready to call themselves a moderate and to stand with other moderate-minded people and to re-imagine America with new politics if moderates led the nation at both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue with America's children and future in mind.

Description

Whether you are a Democrat, Republican, or Independent, Liberal or Conservative New Politics should be on your reading list. New Politics is not a book about politics, it is a book of politics and political self-discovery. Regardless of your political affiliation, if you went through 2020 frustrated with both political parties or the media or inaction by Congress, New Politics, will help you from a new perspective... that of a moderate. It is intended as a badly needed counterweight in the middle of the political scale for those who seek real progress on many festering issues that are holding America back. Based on one simple idea - more moderates in politics create more political moderation, better policies, and better outcomes for America, it prescribes ideas to reunify and rebuild America through a new lens that challenges the traditional left-right political lens. It also challenges Americans to look squarely at two profound blind spot issues — children's rights and adults' political discrimination of children. New Politics will let you catch a glimpse of what moderates talk about when extreme partisans aren't around and what might be on their agenda if they had a seat at the table or voice on stage. It will leave you with the ability to imagine America if moderates led the nation from both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue with America's children and future in mind. The narrative opens with a look at the current state of American politics, media, and defines who American moderates are and what they likely believe. It introduces an ideology of Moderatism to compare your political core against Conservatism, Liberalism, and those the author believes define a 21st-century moderate's political core. To further compare your beliefs with how a moderate's beliefs differ from those of a conservative and liberal, it goes through four hot button issues (guns, immigration, education and climate) so you can decide where you stand. Throughout the book you will be challenged to identify where you stand on a number of raging left-right debates: abortion, children, debt, guns & dangerous people, elections, family, government, inequality, jobs, media, racism, and more. Your journey into the middle of America's political prism ends in the last section with thought provoking solutions for children's rights, skills and jobs, civic duty, healthcare, and federal fiscal responsibility. The final chapter opens with a one minute self-assessment that will answer the question, "Are you a moderate?" And closes with an invitation and a plan for you to participate in an American Revolution of conscience to implement a political solution that encourages America to become a more moderate nation.
