Political Blogs

We live in an exciting time. Maybe it's the ease of internet access or the volatile political atmosphere, but there is no shortage of conversation and debate, and blogs are a great way to find people with whom to toss around ideas.

Here are a few blogs I really like.

The posts are brief, witty, and to the point. Very enjoyable to read.

This is a new one. Very thorough and informative. I don't agree with many Libertarian positions, but I find them to be critical thinkers and always worth debating.

This is a big blog with lots of topics and lots of people. It's also libertarian, but there are a lot of points of view there.

Happy Blogging!

I really enjoy reading your blog, it always has great insight. But I am very frustrated with the media’s lack of questions to the presidential candidates about global warming. Now that it is down to just a few candidates I would think that this would be an issue.

Live Earth just picked up this topic and put out an article ( ) live earth is also asking why the presidential candidates are not being solicited for their stance on the issue of the climate change. I just saw a poll on that says people care a lot about what their next leader thinks of global warming. Does anyone know of another poll or other results about this subject?

Here is the page where I saw the EarthLab poll: This is a pretty legit website; they are endorsed by Al Gore and the alliance for climate protection and they have a carbon footprint calculator. Does anyone have a strong opinion about this like I do? No matter what your political affiliation is or who you vote for this is an important issue for our environment, our economy and for homeland security.

On one hand, I'm not sold on the idea that people are the cause of global warming. The global climate has always changed, and always will, whether people are here or not.

On the other hand, I support all the goals of people who buy into the global warming scare. I think we should find clean sources of energy, and I think we should reduce or eliminate pollution.

I think the oil industry should be taken over by the government. It has too much power to stifle new technologies that would free us from our dependence on oil which has caused inexcusable global civil and economic strife.

I think we should increase our use of nuclear power.

As a measure to fight global warming, be it natural or man-made, we should green a large portion of the earth's deserts. Plants use up CO2, and deserts are cancerous growths on the planet.
