Contrary to common "wisdom", friends DO discuss politics. We will update ourselves on various issues of international,national, and local importance, such as: ISIS, the civil war and proxy war in Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iran. We will discuss the merits and flaws in Republican candidates for the Presidency such as Trump, Cruz, and Rubio and in their positions and do the same for Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. Is Obama's air campaign with a small number of US Special Forces adequate in Syria and is the US training and support for the Iraqi government against ISIS adequate? Should we pull all US troops out of Afghanistan by the end of 2016 as Obama has said will be done? If not, why not? Should the US be doing more to end Syria's Pres. Assad's rule completely? Will the US vs. Russia proxy war in Syria ramp up or is there a credible chance for a peace deal in Syria? On the Economy,has the Obama admin given AIG,Goldman-Sachs and the other big banks too easy and golden a ride? Economic recovery has happened in the US, but when will employment actually be full if you include people who have part-time jobs but who want full-time? Should Americans adopt a long term policy of more savings and less conspicuous consumption? Do you agree with ObamaCare, aka the Affordable Care Act? Has Obamacare been a positive boon for health in America? Would a single-payer health insurance that covers everyone such as Sanders wants be better? Al Qaeda and terrorism, NSA's phone and Internet surveillance, the Patriot Act, the First Amendment and libraries and more. Please check your ego at the door and join us for some good clean political argument and education.
