    GIGO, since the prediction markets are crap. Yang and Mayor Peter doing well has gotta be an "internet" thing. Apparently Mayor Pete is getting steam, and maybe the debates will carry him through,...

    Unfortunately these people are only quiet because political calculations make it convenient, and they still think the Fed was making the wrong moves back in 2010/2011: their new thing, at least in...

    To me it seems like you are way more interested in implementing center-left policy than you are in actually stabilizing the foundations of the republic. So, let's be clear here. You are a center-left...

    Sure, let's get rid of the Electoral College. Any President who can't get a majority of the vote shouldn't be President. If it's undecided, it gets thrown to the House as a contingent election.

    Hopefully someone runs against Trump, and only one person against Trump. Last thing the GOP needs is another three-ring circus in the primaries. I'd say Kasich or Romney are the best positioned at...

    I pretty strongly disagree with this. Most of what the federal government is national defense, redistribution, and income security. Most state governments spend tons of money on public education and...

    A handful of men out of how many elected officials? It's not easy to become a popular politician at a nation-wide level. You're talking an exceedingly small sample size of Americans who can possibly...

    I obviously don't speak for anyone besides myself, but Warren doesn't come off as egg-headed to me. She comes across as an angry, spiteful grandmother who likes to lecture you and makes you have a...

    Most of the front-runners are all conservative bugbears, which is essentially the position you get yourself into when you start running for President in 2017 (or earlier, in the case of Warren)....

    Trump's wrong, but it's not clear to me who I should be rooting for if I am not a Cold War American. Afghanistan would be better off if the Soviets had somehow "won" and created a shithole state like...

    The Soviet intervention of Afghanistan was totally reasonable (from the perspective of non-Cold War, non-great power politics, so don't take a US view on this) and basically in the same ballpark as...

    Pretty sure most of my hair will be gray by the end of the year. At this point I expect this "trade war" to continue spiraling out of control. Would not be surprised to see full-blown Constiutional...

    The Executive Branch has usually claimed a sitting President cannot be indicted on criminal charges. Trump will likely be impeached, but it'd have to be really bad for a conviction in the Senate. But...

    "Libertarian" in the US typically involves Constitutional textualism, rather than iron-clad strict constructionism. Zraver definitely strikes me as that variety, though I'm not sure how apparent that...
