The debate surrounding daily fantasy sports isn’t about skill or chance, but evidence that our psuedo-ban on sports gambling is hypocritical and ineffective.

Libertarianism has died more times than Abe Vigoda. But unlike good old Fish, libertarianism is still alive and kicking.

Rand Paul self disqualified as a libertarian:

«In an interview a day before his Iowa trip, Paul, 50, also tried to make clear just what kind of politician he is. “To some, ‘libertarian’ scares people,” he said. “Some of them come up to me and they say, ‘I kind of like you, but I don’t like legalizing heroin.’ And I say, ‘Well, that’s not my position.’ ”

Paul said he believes in freedom and wants a “virtuous society” where people practice “self-restraint.” Yet he believes in laws and limits as well. Instead of advocating for legalized drugs, for example, he pushes for reduced penalties for many drug offenses.

“I’m not advocating everyone go out and run around with no clothes on and smoke pot,” he said. “I’m not a libertarian. I’m a libertarian Republican. I’m a constitutional conservative.” »

«Sherman got that chance Friday when he joined other clergy members at the Cedar Rapids lunch to pose pointed questions to Paul. He said he came away liking what he heard. “He made it very clear that he does not support legalization of drugs like marijuana and that he supports traditional marriage,” Sherman said.»

«In preparation for a 2016 presidential run, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is courting evangelical leaders. And we all know what that means! It's time to throw those hedonistic, libertine, drug-obsessed libertarians under the bus.»

«Just to hammer home what's been said already: Paul isn't a libertarian on drugs. He wants to keep everything illegal, but institute gentler penalties. That's not remotely libertarian. (Is it politically practical? Sure. So are farm subsidies.)»

President Obama shouldn’t be pretending that he has – to use his words – “the back” of Flint residents when he's actually showing them his back. It would be far more honest and humane to tell them they are on their own.

Flint’s environmental regulators were asleep at the wheel, but nobody wanted to call them out, because bad things happen to people who criticize the government. The horribly mismanaged water system was the result of government planning born of economic ignorance. So far, relief has come in the form of private corporations donating millions of bottles of water.

The Constitution, which Ted Cruz and his rivals claim to revere, forbids any religious test for office and makes no claim to fulfill the word of God. Somebody ought to take the hint.
Let’s not treat Christian faith as a requirement for being a good president.

Anyone who wants to be "commander in chief of this nation" should be considered morally disqualified for office. Cruz has forgotten at least one Christian principle: "Whoever wants to be first must be the servant of all."

+Jason Azze The man should be compensated by the government.  The fact that our tax dollars (or debt) is going to pay for it should anger the electorate and get them to pressure their legislators to end forfeiture.

Reason was on the scene of last night's Democratic Bernie Sanders Rally at UNH debate held at the University of New Hampshire (UNH). Prior to the punchy MSNBC-moderated debate between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, supporters of both candidates rallied on campus. 
UNH students are Feeling the Bern, hating the fossil fuels, and bearish on Hillary Clinton.

+Kelly Boswell,
Btw, you have no comment on the constitution?
Pretty "cut and dry", ain't it?

There's no point splitting hairs over whether Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio is the biggest warmonger. Both love the bloody and costly U.S. empire.

Policymakers need to stop digging and instead implement institutional reforms that constrain government spending, which is the underlying cause of the mounting debt. Indeed, that should be a precondition to raising the debt limit next year. 
"If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging."

+Steve Rosenquist. What? If our economy collapses maybe 10's of millions found die. Maybe more. If the planet becomes unable to support humanity 7 billion will die. Nice morality

"Even Democrats who see Clinton as a symbol of their long-time wish for a progressive female in the Oval Office are beginning to recognize that anyone who has jeopardized American lives for political gain is unworthy of their votes, unworthy of their trust, and unworthy of public office." -- +Andrew P. Napolitano

Politically, Clinton has lost the final argument in her public arsenal—that she did not recognize top-secret data unless it was marked as top secret.
