A look at the second nationally televised GOP debate demonstrates precisely why Cruz will hopefully stay away from the top tier candidates (not that Donald Trump is someone who is imminently better).
Kim Davis should not be mentioned in the same article as Martin Luther King Jr, yet SE Cupp and Loconte did just that, "Martin Luther King Jr.'s entire campaign of civil disobedience was based on the belief that citizens owed allegiance to the "natural law" -- a moral law higher than that of any civil authority.
New data, with help from Google, illustrate unprecedented -- and until now, largely overlooked -- forest loss in Southeast Asia and West Africa, among other hotspots.
Super PACs are taking in unprecedented amounts of cash, all the while being allowed to conceal the identities of their donors. This amounts to little more than legalized bribery, which the Supreme Court has aided and abetted with their rulings on McCutcheon, Citizens United, and similar decisions.
In spite of all the other horrible things we do to each other each day in this country, the God VS. Gays tragic comedy that's been playing out in the Bible Belt for the past month is the one event that far and away makes me ashamed to be an American.

With every passing day, we're being moved further down the road towards a totalitarian society characterized by government censorship, violence, corruption, hypocrisy and intolerance, all packaged for our supposed benefit in the Orwellian doublespeak of national security, tolerance and so-called "government speech."
If Ms. Davis can't bring herself, in the aftermath of the Supreme Court's Obergefell decision, to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, then she should resign. That is her only option.
At one time in our history, it was Southern Democrats that led the voter suppression tactics ranging from poll taxes to violence against blacks. Today, it is now Republicans, who may be wary of expanding their base to remain competitive, that champion this unpatriotic maneuver.
Only three candidates are willing to say that the system is corrupt: Bernie Sanders, Donald Trump, and Lawrence Lessig. But Trump has no solution to the problem, while the other two do.
It's clear that something must be done to reform criminal justice in New Mexico, but that doesn't mean that just anything should be done. A tougher three strikes law will take the state further away from reform.
