It is a time of fear in the face of freedom, a time of an emptying country and swelling cities, a time for the widening of previous roads and the opening of new paths, yet a time when these paths are mined by knowing algorithms of the all-seeing eye. It is the time of the warrior's peace and the miser's charity, when the planting of a seed is an act of conscientious objection.

Are you ready for Hillary 2016… or are you ready for Hillary Clinton to retire? [...]
A campaign strategy that appeals to religious Iowans while shunning the significant secular minority in the state is unlikely to succeed. [...]
The political corporation called Americans Elect has made the act of getting sillier, and sillier, and sillier look like an art form. The latest act of Americans Elect is gallery-worthy.
Last week, Americans Elect leaders Doug Bailey (Unity08 cofounder and Americans Elect candidate recruiter) and Les Francis (Americans Elect Board of Advisors) wrote an [...]
In February 2012, Republican state representative and Americans Elect chief legal counsel Dan Winslow said you know it’s time to reform the presidential election system when technical difficulties interfere with democratic process:
