Competition in education is a good thing. The most fundamental aspect of a free market is competition. It drives innovation while keeping prices lower for consumers. When a monopoly takes hold on an industry, it often becomes stagnant and inefficient because there is no need to evolve and compete as…

Factions are impossible to prevent, but their effects can be limited. The Federalist Papers seemed to have lost its place as a staple piece of reading for Americans, young and old. It in many ways embodies American civics and should be revisited time and again, for it serves as an…

Abandoning Roy Moore is the only option for the GOP. The level of hypocrisy coming from so-called conservatives over the last few months is appalling.
