My latest TCS essay is built around one of my favorite Tyler quotes. I write,
There are passionate Republicans and passionate Democrats. But I agree with Tyler Cowen that neither party is likely to seem attractive. I can give a number of examples that for me illustrate Tyler Cowen’s law. These are policies that neither party is likely to endorse, even though to me they make sense.
* a trade policy of unilateral disarmament
* surrender in the drug war
* separation of family and state
* creating an agency to audit the Department of Homeland Security
I conclude with an argument for tossing out incumbents, and polls show that I am not alone.
