The purpose of this site is to foster logical, intelligent discussion of national and international public policy issues. Comments based on reason and reality are enthusiastically encouraged. Bigotry and childish condescension will not be tolerated.
The site proudly leans left on most issues. That is because I ardently believe progressive policies are grounded in lucid, rational thinking that embraces science as well as individual liberty and freedom. With that said, you will still find some subjects where I favor conservative ideology such as with affirmative action and illegal immigration. I also embrace a few Libertarian views, e.g., their isolationist stance regarding cavalier foreign military engagements.
Most importantly, as a tolerant, open-minded progressive, I welcome and appreciate everyone's opinion on all subject matter.
