Moderate Party (Illinois)
The party platform consisted of two planks: open democracy and peaceful security. It left all other positions open to the individual candidate. The party became established under Illinois election law when Bill Scheurer garnered more than 5% of the vote. Scheurer elected not to run in the 2008 Congressional elections and the party candidate was Iain Abernathy. Scheurer's wife, Randi Scheurer was a candidate in the Democratic Primary for the Illinois 8th Congressional District.
The party opposed unrestricted immigration. In addition to supporting the deportation of illegal aliens, this party sought to limit the number of immigrants that can be allowed to enter the U.S.
