So, I assume, that it would be good sense to remove this article, as this site is a welcome respite from politics.

But so long as this article remains, Peter Thiel:

> "I don’t pretend to agree with every plank in our party’s platform, but fake culture wars only distract us from our economic decline"

He should talk to the people he is trying to get elected - they are the ones responsible for fake necessary voter ID laws, fake laws protected religious freedoms, fake laws attacking women's ability to control their reproductive rights, fake laws to control who gets into what bathrooms.

If he wants to convince me that his party is even remotely concerned about the economy and truly focusing on the right things, maybe the week should have focused on how to unleash entrepreneurship in the country like making it easier not harder to take risks etc...

It was a good speech, it just overlooked the basic facts on the ground.

I think the truth is a little less subject to a pretty speech. "I care more about my money than anything else."
