This petition was closed the evening before the November 2, 2010 federal election. If the author is still alive, kicking, and in control of his faculties in 2014, the topic of providing midterm platforms will probably be taken up once again.
After all, our two major political parties have been providing voters with presidential year platforms since the mid-1800s.

This petition is now closed.
