Ah! if we could but have more science and less madness in our current politics and campaigning.Science and FACTS will rule the day eventually.

I tend to agree with Waffler on this one. There's enough BS coming out of the political conventions to fertilize every farm in North and South America.

That's right Jim, and it's why we need to "change" the system. The two party system backed and owned by the entirely corrupt International (Fed) Bankers has to go...and go it will.

Even someone as smart as Newton can get sucked into the fallacy of fiat currency and compounded interest.
