Some “current events” articles, by way of the HCR “U.S. Politics Forum” I frequent:

VOX: A Republican Party Intellectual Explains Why the GOP is Going to Die.

VOX: Simulation: How Republicans Respond to Trump.

L.A. Times Op-Ed for 2016-08-02: Globalization Isn’t Killing Factory Jobs. Trade Is Actually Why Manufacturing Is Up By 40%.

That was some good lunch-break reading today.
