Political Party

The Modern Whig Party

Official Name:

Modern Whig Party

Founder:

Mike Lebowitz

Founding date:

2007

Party Ideology:

The centrist party leans to the right on fiscal issues and to the left on social ones. It seeks to build itself into a viable third party alternative, and rejects attempts to label its political ideology.

Party History:

The party is viewed by its founders as the ideological descendant of the original Whig Party of the 19th century, with a twist. Brought into being in the Middle East by active members of the American armed forces disillusioned with hegemony and ideology of the big two, the Modern Whig Party immediately became a hit among servicemen, drawing reportedly 25,000 of them into the party fold within a year of its founding.

In 2010, the D.C.-based Whigs merged with the 16,000-strong American Centrist Party.
