The Argument

Excellent discussion about economics!

A great antidote to propaganda from all sides

Sometimes lately I can’t stand hearing my own side preaching to the choir any better than I can deal with the other side spouting nonsense. The conversation between Michelle, Ross and David makes me feel like I’m keeping up on the issues without having to swallow a lot of self-congratulatory BS.

We need more of this!

I’m thrilled with “The Argument.” While my political outlook aligns most closely with Michelle’s, I have great respect for all three columnists’ willingness to disagree respectfully with each other. What a refreshing and stimulating contrast from nearly everything else in today’s media. My one complaint is that it’s only broadcast once a week.
