  •  Surely there's a differential equation that (10+ / 0-)

    explains that. Something something.

    •  y'=y (1+ / 0-)

      No, wait, that is the equation for exponential growth, ex, which is roughly what we saw for ACA Signups. It's like tribble reproduction, where every tribble gives birth to another tribble at regular intervals, and they are born pregnant. Thus the birth rate equals the population.

      Uh, y''=y? That gives sine and cosine oscillations, like pendulum swings, so if the trend is toward the Democrats, it must mean that Republicans will win! But then the Democrats will win the next time after. Nooooo!

      Newton, F=gMm/R2? Wait, Einstein! G = 8πgT/c4 (the Einstein tensor is proportional everywhere to the energy-momentum tensor, so that gravity is defined by the shape of spacetime). Nope. That gives the Big Bang. Can't have that for the base.

      No, the problem is that differential equations define math and science and thus necessarily have even more of a built-in Liberal bias than mere facts.
