Epistemicnomad: I am interested in all things political. I regularly consume the news with great interest. I am neither a Democrat nor a Republican. I try to take each issue and weigh them using reason and evidence. More personally, I am a veteran of the U.S. Air Force. I have a BA in philosophy and a MA as well.
The purpose of this blog is to foster an effective revolt against misinformation and poor reasoning. We seek to foment discussion that will effect elections and policy making on the local and national level. The weapons of this revolt are reason and civility. We categorically reject any calls to arms or violence. We hold intentional deception as anathema and derogatory discourse as worthy of swift rejection. To this end, all use of derogatory language will be subject to blockage. This site was created to raise the quality of public discourse.
We ask that your primary weapon be arguments and evidence. Your response will be respected and potent if you:
1. Cite your sources
2. Abstain from fallacious reasoning
3. Stick to the subject at hand
4. Refrain from trolling
5. Present arguments not rants
