Drone Warfare: An Illegal Tactic Sure to Perpetuate U.S.-Muslim War Indefinitely

It is a profound but nearly universal mistake among Americans (and others) to think that the withdrawal of American forces from Afghanistan in 2013 or 2014 will end the American war with the Muslim world that began on September 11 in 2001.

Why I’m Voting Green

The November election is not a battle between Republicans and Democrats. It is not a battle between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. It is a battle between the corporate state and us.

The Heartland Election

We still make a lot of stuff in the United States of America, and one of the good things about this election is that it is likely to be decided in the nation’s industrial heartland.

Blacks More Likely Than Other Groups to Identify as Gay

A recent study shows blacks in the U.S. are more likely to identify as gay than other ethnic groups; saggy pants have become illegal in a Florida city; meanwhile, Mitt Romney’s work for big tobacco is at odds with his professed Mormon beliefs. These discoveries and more after the jump.

What America Will We Pick?

This election is only tangentially a fight over policy. It is also a fight about meaning and identity—and that’s one reason why voters are so polarized. It’s about who we are and who we aspire to be.

How the Right Wing Lost in 2012

If conservatism were winning, does anyone doubt that Romney would be running as a conservative? Yet unlike Ronald Reagan and Barry Goldwater, Romney is offering an echo, not a choice. His strategy at the end is to try to sneak into the White House on a chorus of me-too’s.

The Not-So-Hidden Obama Agenda

Everywhere you turn, President Obama is accused of not offering a clear second-term agenda. It’s not surprising that Republicans say it, but you also hear it from quarters sympathetic to the president. But how true is the charge?
