The Polite Liberal

A rant-free discussion of liberal philosophy and policies.


The Polite Liberal is the pseudonym of a "nontraditional" graduate student in mathematics (for nonacademics, "nontraditional," is a polite way of saying, "older than 25.") The Polite Liberal is an attempt to spur real policy debate, instead of partisan insults and conspiracy theories. Conservatives (and liberals, of course!) are welcome.

Republicans on Crime and National Security

Like clockwork, in every election the Republicans talk incessantly about how tough they are on crime. They bleat on about how only they can be trusted on National Security.

Once they have total power, what do we see? A Republican President commuting the sentence of a felon who helped cover up a crime that damaged our national security, and compromised our intelligence assets on Iran's nuclear program, for nothing more than partisan advantage.

It's clear now who can be trusted on crime, and on national security. It certainly isn't conservatives.
