Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

There's just so much going on:
Supreme Court justice Louis Brandeis called states "the laboratories of democracy." Often overlooked, but crucially important in the era of semipermanent Washington gridlock, state legislatures are where some of the biggest policy decisions are made that impact our everyday lives. Decisions on issues such as public school funding, drinking water standards, and police accountability are made in our state capitols.

Over the course of the past 8 months in the twitterverse, I have been astounded to find UIDs, purporting amateur  or professional "policy" expertise, who simply will not acknowledge this truth:

The political divisions of the states' governments are identically republican (US Constitution); yet legislators' effects from which legal and economic conditions derive in each jurisdiction are not uniform. Politics is local.

Wait, so an Oregon Republican is a socialist too?

LOL. Not that republican, the other one --standard issue patriot dedicated to oligarchy constituted as bicameral legislature, executive, judiciary, separation of powers,etc.

OTOH, I did cross an ad hoc assembly of "Corn Socialists" on twitter, united in poverty by their lord and savior jeebus the christ.
