The Centrist Equality Party is a moderate political party with a platform that isnt ultra-anything but fair. Which is how we got our nickname the "ultra-moderates". We believe that Americans deserve the social freedoms of the left, but not the high costly taxes. We believe that Americans deserve the high cash-flow of the right, but not the personal restrictions. You may know this better as "Social Liberal Fiscal Conservative" or "SLFC". People and the media right this stance off as cliche and "bland", because so many unsuccesful politicians "support" it. However, NO ONE has supported this policy. Many have claimed it, but there posistions were always to far left for fiscal conservatism and too far right social liberalism. Here are a few people that come to mind..
Henry Ross Perot: We here at the Centrist Equality Party appreciate Ross as a majority of us voted for him in 92' and 96'. However Ross Perot WAS NOT fiscally conservative. If you remember correctly, Ross wanted to greatly increase taxes for everyone and the gas tax. Also, he supported an increase in business tax and domestic taxes (alchohol,cigarette). This is the best example of being to fiscally liberal to be "SLFC".
John McCain: McCain, though he has a good platform, is to socially conservative to claim this title. He supports such things limiting abortions to rape and life endangerment. He also supports the idea of not hesitati9ng to use military force against terrorism. These being big domestic issues are enough to count John McCain out of this catergory.
So to say the least we are the first party acctually nominating candidates that hold this posistion. The Reform PArty comes to mind for alot of people with this idea, but nominating the extreme-right (Pat Buchanun) and the extreme-left (Ralph Nader) this party flip-flops to much to have a defined posistion. I recommend you at least look into our party at www.centrist-equality-party.cjb.net . If you like our posistions and principles than I urge you to join and help us start the "ultra-moderate" revolution, by expanding this party to bigger and larger heights.

But how would you say that California's governor Arnold Schwarzenegger ranks on your list of Social Liberal, Fiscal Conservative politicians?
