Before everyone loses their mind with the usual knee-jerk reaction of "Sanders is a socialist," one must remember that progressives and libertarians actually share several of the same ideals -- our federal government needs to be drastically reformed in many areas.
As a professional facilitator, I have been disappointed by the failure of moderators to better manage the 2016 presidential debates. A clear set of rules could help to avoid the disrespectful banter that has dominated the dialogue.
The Soviet Union seemed permanent and invincible, until it didn't. When it fell, far more suddenly than anyone thought it would or could, the festering rot of decades was exposed to the world. We're seeing this happen, in real time, with the Republican Party.
In Iowa one week before the Presidential caucuses, we were far from the only group discussing politics that blustery night.

Paul raised hopes in the latest GOP debate that he was returning to his libertarian roots. Maybe not.
