Re: Article II

Here's a good place for you to start. F. A. Hayek and Milton Friedman - both have real PhD's in Economics and both are Nobel Laureates. I highly recommend Hayek's "The Road to Serfdom" , and Friedman's "Free to Choose" series. The Free to Choose series is on Amazon Prime, and Fr...

Re: Article II

Keep looking at polls, kid. I'll keep looking at the real-world numbers. Thanks to capitalistic free-market economies, the world has never been as prosperous as it is now. Massive increases in technological innovation, medical sciences, capital, wages while seeing drastic reductions in worldwide vi...

World Record surrender. Are you sure you're not French? Nah, your statement is the exact same one mocked by the piece I posted.

Does this mean he thinks the train is off the track and he won't face reprisal from Trump, who is renowned for his vindictiveness? What could happen to him? Not get hired back in 2021? That wasn't happening anyway. He'll just keep writing books and making speeches and cashing million dollar checks....

Re: Why Trump Will Win Again

Ideas and people are explicitly tied together, so you can't say the people come and go and change over time without saying the idea of America changes over time. If you believe in the ideals of the Enlightenment, you have to acknowledge the main tenants: liberty, self-governance, and progress. Libe...
