Cultural Crossroads: Carter Tried To Stop Bush's Energy Disasters 28 Years Ago

Cultural Crossroads: The Young People Voting Block

Democrats and progressives make the mistake of thinking that today's Social Security debate is about Social Security. It's not. It's about creating single party rule for a generation or more.

What if there really was no need for much - or even most - of the Cold War? What if, in fact, the Cold War had been kept alive for two decades based on phony WMD threats?

Many of the world’s mature democracies require every high school graduate to serve a year or two of either military or nonprofit service.

Cultural Crossroads: Jefferson Predicted Iraq

Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon thought they could bomb Vietnam into accepting democracy. George W. Bush thinks he can do it with Iraq. Thomas Jefferson had some very different thoughts on the issue.

Gay Marriage: What's In A Word

What's in a word? Plenty, if the word is “marriage.”

Cultural Crossroads: Gay Marriage? It All Began with Jefferson
