Everyone, well at least everyone I know, loves the movie It’s a Wonderful Life and understands that Mr. Potter is the villain. Unfortunately, off of the silver screen and out here in the real world,

|Question for Kossack Economists

|Using Data Based Tax Policy to Undermine the Republicans
Before getting into the heart of my argument, permit me to celebrate for a moment. Consider what is about to happen. The economy is about to flourish under President Obama, totally undermining the ...
|Gary Johnson Effect in NC?
I am working hard for the Obama campaign in NC and yesterday I received a copy of the sample ballot for Nov (thought I'll be voting on 10/18 the first day of early voting here) and saw that Gary ...
|It's Only 4.6 Cents

|Long Days Ahead for Romney
After the end of the DNC tonight, election season truly starts. The Obama campaign undetstands this and has kept its power relatively dry up to this point. From here on out Romney can keep hiding ...

When Romney named Ryan as his VP I was struck by the fact that even though Romney has been running for president forever, in all that time, he hadn't picked a VP and made a last minute selection ...
