Ted Cruz Running For President

Not to mention all of the problems of what he is. Can Ted Cruz become President? He was born in Canada to a USA citizen Mother and a Cuban citizen Father. I worked in Egypt back in the 80's. My daughter was born in Cairo. In order for her to be a USA citizen she had to have both parents be USA citizens. My wife is a USA citizen and so am I. My daughter has an Egyptian Birth Certificate and a U S Embassy issued birth certificate for Americans born overseas. She was also issued a passport by the U S Embassy at 3 days old.

Name one article written by a libertarian that you've read and tell me why they're wrong.

Not even an entire book. I know we're all busy. Just an article. Give me an article written by a progressive. I'll read it and critique it.

Does Anyone Remember ANY Intellectually Honest Libertarian Articles Posted Here?

If there's one consistent thing I've noticed in all the articles posted here in support of libertarian ideas... I can remember one that wasn't so full of half-truths and distortions it was embarrassing to think someone who took their credibility seriously actually put their name on it.

These articles can't be meant for general consumption. They have to be meant for gullible true believers who are so driven by confirmation bias... they've completely sabotaged their own intelligence.

Any theories why libertarians are so susceptible to such bullsh*t?

Progressives to everyone else: If you don't like it leave or Love it or Leave It 2015 version

I don't know how many times I've read "progressives" on this board say government is really voluntary because you are free to leave. But these same people oppose the idea of secession. Isn't that a form of "leaving"?

Buy Your Defense Stocks Now

People might as well profit from what's coming. Netanyahu's re-election will keep the Mideast pot boiling and I fear what he and the Repubs will come up with to torpedo any Iranian deal. Check out the latest Repub budget-cut social services and increase defense spending. Repubs are going to use fear and security(like Netanyahu did) to rally the populace. Oh, and Obama wants to send weapons to Syria(probably won't be the only place). We end up supplying ISIS too after they capture the weapons we supply.

Question for Chicago Matt

Ever experience this crap?

Two reasons why I oppose public sector unions all rolled into one guy.

"Union lobbyist who worked one day as a teacher suing Illinois over $30,000 pension"

Democratic Shame

Both Demos and Repubs need to acknowledge their problem children.

When Recall Becomes Necessary

Progressives: Stop whining, you're winning. Most of the country agrees with you

Most people in this country, whether they call themselves liberal or conservative, or somewhere in between accept progressivism. Most of the country, and that includes so-called right-wingers support income taxation, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, regulation of business, the FDA, FCC, government control of money, the war on poverty, etc. You could even argue that the neocons foreign policy is just an extension of the progressive mindset of remaking domestic society, abroad.

Can we make California the last oil spill?

A state of emergency has been declared in California after crews realized that the Rufugio Beach oil spill was five times worse than original estimates. This week, the Plains All American Pipeline ruptured and dumped crude oil over a four-mile stretch of pristine California coastline.
