Civil Discourse and The Clash of Ideas

Civil Discourse and The Clash of Ideas

      By Lee H. Hamilton     The election of 2012 has called attention to how difficult it is for Americans to talk reasonably with one another about public policy challenges.

Congress, which ought to serve as the forum where politicians of diverse views find common ground, is instead riven by ... Full Story

Of Republicans and Race Cards

      Tomgram: Jeremiah Goulka, Playing the ID Card       Posted by Jeremiah Goulka at 6:30pm, October 14, 2012. It’s an election year for the record books -- or maybe Ripley’s Believe It or Not.  The Obama campaign has now raised close to $1 billion; “dark money” is pouring into the Republican camp and onto the airwaves; and it’s clear that earlier predictions of the first $2 billion presidential campaign are likely to fall short of the real ...

I listened to Rush Limbaugh -- admired him even because I was young and impressionable and I didn't yet know about how adults twist the truth for their personal benefit ... Full Story

Obama’s Way

Obama’s Way

A Catholic responds

A Catholic responds

        I received an email from my relative regarding our Catholic faith. The email contained a paid political advertisement produced by church members entitled "Test of Fire: Election 2012". I want to share my response: I believe, as our forefathers did, that you do not mix politics and religion. If you do, then the religious institution is indulging in political persuasion and should be taxed. I find it incredible in today's society that the church ... Full Story
