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.

Great Catch-22/Trump-context quote, Loren! <sigh>

I'm jealous, Daniel. I'd love to attend too, but I hate crowds, even non-superstitious ones.

Daniel, you may be our eyes and ears at the Reason Rally, our reporter on the scene. I hope the turnout is huge; I also hope you get to participate in discussions with "stars of the show".
If I were there, i would hound David Silverman and pick his brain about firebrand atheism. l would also enjoy sitting with Dilahunte to discuss debate strategy.
With whom would you enjoy a chat?
