The always astute, insightful, and persuasive Thomas Sowell has an especially good column about the national election before us. It’s titled “Do Facts Matter?” If you only read one column this week, please make it this one. And spread the word.
I’m only left to wonder if there are enough rational voters left in the center of American politics. Every two to four years, it seems like there is a little bit less rationality than before. But if the current trend continues, it would be a big step forward in my opinion. Some seem to want to choose Barack Obama as the next “flavor of the month” — the President of the United States is like an ice cream cone or a cup of coffee. If only the rest of us had such trivial consequences to face from this election, I wouldn’t be writing on this blog.
