Our tendency toward partisanship is likely the result of evolution—forming groups is how prehistoric humans survived. That's helpful when trying to master an unforgiving environment with Stone Age technology. It's less so when trying to foster a functional democracy.

Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz won the Value Voters Summit presidential straw poll on Saturday.
The crowd burst onto applause on Saturday, as Family Research Council President Tony Perkins announced that Cruz won 25 percent of votes at the annual Washington conference.

In May, the USDA requested an unspecified number of submachine and semi-automatic guns
by Joanna Rothkopf | Salon.com
In May of this year, the USDA’s Office of the Inspector General filed a request for “submachine guns, .40 Cal. S&W, ambidextrous safety, semi-automatic or 2 shot burts trigger group, Tritium night sights for front and rear, rails for attachment of flashlight (front under fore grip) and scope (top rear), stock-collapsilbe or folding, magazine – 30 rd. capacity, sling, light weight, and oversized trigger guard for gloved operation.”
To a layperson, that request might seem exorbitant for an agency that is primarily responsible for overseeing plants. Not so says a spokesperson: “OIG Special Agents regularly conduct undercover operations and surveillance. The types of investigations conducted by OIG Special Agents include criminal activities such as fraud in farm programs; significant thefts of Government property or funds; bribery and extortion; smuggling; and assaults and threats of violence against USDA employees engaged in their official duties.”
A more honest scorecard of politicians...Rand and Cruz score at top

TAMPA — Adrian Wyllie isn’t your typical candidate for governor of Florida. Among other things, he campaigns in beer parlors and brags on the stump about his most recent arrests.
But there’s method in the seeming madness of Wyllie, the Libertarian who’ll be on the ballot in November along with Republican Gov. Rick Scott and his Democratic challenger, former Gov. Charlie Crist.
"At this point, we, as a nation, are severely lost. We are unfeeling and devoid of empathy. We refuse to admit that the growth of Muslim extremism in the Middle East is a direct result of the ruthless policies that we have employed in the region. But we as a nation have a choice. We can choose to live in unceasing fear of terrorism, we can cling to the fantasy that terrorists target the U.S. out of contempt for our “freedom,” or we can choose to recognize that our policies of perpetual war, occupation, and meddling in Middle Eastern affairs are what have fueled terrorism in the region."
