The July 24, 2011 Sunday New York Times had an opinion piece by Thomas Friedman titled “Make Way for the Radical Center“. After reading the article, I decided to check out the organization, Americans Elect 2012. It looks interesting enough, and offers some hope for change to our current finger-pointing politics, that I joined. If you are dissatisfied with the way the United States is being governed and with the choices for candidates being offered by the entrenched parties, you might well want to participate in this grassroots attempt to bring some sanity to our national government. See how your views coalesce with the views of other Americans at the Americans Select/Americans Elect 2012 website.
