Discussion No. 8: Editorials


Need a 300-word response + citations for the following question.

One of the best websites for coverage of American politics is Real Clear Politics, at www.realclearpolitics.com. Real Clear Politics provides polling information, but it also provides links to the best political writing in the United States each day. The goal of Real Clear Politics is to provide the best opinion writing from across the American political spectrum.

Go to Real Clear Politics and read a few editorials. Find one that makes an interesting or provocative argument, and write up a brief summary of it to post here. Also include a link to the article so that others can read it. Do not provide your own opinion - provide a dispassionate summary

Remember to identify your sources. An in-text citation requires a parenthetical citation, for example: (Smith). Then, provide a formal citation at the end of your posting. 

Be sure to fully explain your position, citing a high-quality source as evidence, in addition to the textbook (https://openstax.org/details/books/american-government-3e). Wikipedia, an online blog, and similar items are examples of unacceptable sources on the collegiate level. Again, each student is expected to utilize high-quality sources (academic journals, scholarly articles, current laws/policies, court cases, etc.), in addition to the textbook.
