Rhetorical question of the day: If you were a non-Nazi and you had to vote at the Tennessee polling place shown in tonight's meme, how much confidence would you have that your vote would be counted or that you would even be allowed to vote? In civilized states, they...

As we approach elections in November and the end of President Trump’s first term, it’s worth taking a look at the stressors facing our country and the two leading contenders for the throne. In my book How Madness Shaped History, I write...

I'm gay. When I realized it, I was living in Amsterdam. I went to a psychologist and told him. He looked at me oddly and said, basically, "So? You need me to give you the addresses of gay bars?" Then I flew to the U.S., for my first visit back home in 4 years, to tell my mother. Her...

In Florida, the Republicans have pretty close to a one-party state government. Ron DeSantis is the most disliked governor in America, but he's still the governor (and not up for reelection in November). The state House has 71 Republicans and 46 Democrats. The state Senate has 23...

Florida is the ultimate 50-50 swing state. After FDR died-- and Florida had given him over 70% of its votes in each of his 4 runs-- Florida became a purple state. Truman won and then Eisenhower won there twice. After that, it went like this:

A new poll by YouGov for Yahoo News found that only 22% of Americans think this year's election will be "free and fair." That's very bad; it undermines democracy-- something the Donald has been doing for years. And there are liable to be "millions of partisans refusing to accept the...
