Politics, Economics, and Religion

Religion has so many connections to political and economic beliefs, there needs to be a place to identify linkages, problems, goals, options, action plans and evaluation criteria.

What is the purpose of life?

An eternal question, what is the purpose of life?, occupied philosophers’ thoughts throughout history. Stone pictographs reveal even primitive peoples reflected on this query. Each one has the capacity to define his or her personal thinking about politics, economics and religion.

Robert Redford: 45 years after Watergate, the truth is again in danger

[WAPO - entire column]

. . . The system worked. The checks and balances the Constitution was designed to create functioned when put to their biggest test. Would they still? Which brings me to the other half of the question: What’s different now?

Much. Our country is divided, and we have a tenuous grasp on truth.

There was a time during a period of national crisis when politicians from both sides of the aisle put partisan politics aside to uncover the truth. There was a time when Democrats and Republicans united to navigate a peaceful ending to a corrupt and criminal presidency. There was a time when members of Congress placed defending our democracy above party interests for the greater good. There was a time.

Now is a different time. If we have another Watergate, will we navigate it as well? In a statement in May 1973, John Dean addressed what he described as efforts to discredit his testimony by discrediting him personally. He famously said: “The truth always emerges.”

I’m concerned about its chances these days.

In my case, it's a side effect of the grotesque gerrymandering in this state.  The Democratic congressmen are all real liberals.  Notice the absence of North Carolina on that chart, except for Price signing on just recently.

Mine hasn't. I've contacted her via Twitter and I may call her office. Which I find a little odd since she's actually fairly active and has a very diverse district. I may have to dig deeper.

Well, my congressman is already on-board.  Cool.

Thanks, Jennifer W, for the list of 111 House Democrats NOT currently supporting HR 676 Medicare for all. I will do all I can to get letters going in those districts who are not voting for it.

In other words, we haven't previously had a president stupid enough to fall for the Russian propaganda.
