Big Whig News!

Well it is official, the American Centrist Party has merged with the Modern Whig Party. This merger, in the works for a little while now, unifies two of the largest moderate American political parties and shows that interest in this movement is continuing to rise which is amazing when considering how polarized our political environment it is in America today. Some 16,000 new members have now joined the Modern Whig Party giving the MWP some 46,000 members and hopefully the newly merged leadership will guide the MWP to greater scope in American politics and I wish the MWP congrats, Cheers!

Oy Vey...

I hate to say it..but I told you so..Several posts back I discussed the relative stupidity of American Voters on how our very political system works and its history. Some of you may have read it and thought, "surely the American voter can't be that dumb" or something along those lines..but now we have more proof of our own stupidity...Two websites, and the American Revolution Center have recented published polls that should make all Americans shudder and think.

Firstly, the website FindLaw discovered that roughly 2/3 of those who participated in their poll couldn't name a single U.S. Supreme Court Justice..which while understandable considering how relatively little we see of the Supreme Court is still a saddening fact that all Americans should pay attention to..

Secondly, the American Revolution Center sponsored a national survey with 1001 participants to determine how well we Americans understand basic Civics and facts about our very Revolutionary War and the results are..well, Pathetic. As such I will let you read the results for yourself..
