What's the big (energy) idea?

Say a group of citizens in a fairly progressive US state wanted to run an initiative campaign [i.e., pass a law by popular vote] that would implement one big, state-wide renewable energy effort. What should it be? [more inside]

Will Noone Rid Me Of These Troublesome Political Calls?

We get what I consider to be an excessive number of political advocation/push polls/polls/robocalls at our house (9 calls between noon on Wednesday and noon on Thursday, for example). We get 1-3 political-oriented calls per-week year round, but it is beginning to feel like harassment now. Help me figure out how to cut way back on the calls for the future. [more inside]

Looking for Platforms/Positions, Campaign Summaries, Judicial Ratings & Tiny-Position Info to Help Me Cast my Cook County Ballot

I’m a resident of Chicago (Cook County, Illinois). I’m very much not a fan of politics, but that lack of enthusiasm doesn’t extend to not voting – I’d still like to make an educated choice when casting my ballot, but without re-engaging in the political blogosphere, etc.. So, could you help me do my due diligence by helping me find websites that would contain the three particular kinds of information you'll see me describe inside/after the break? [more inside]

I need a "politics for dummies" book.

I'd like to be knowledgeable about politics enough to be able to state my opinion, engage in debates, and the like. I'm a one-issue person (gay marriage) and I'd like to discover my own beliefs about politics so that I no longer have to sit quietly when my friends get into it.

Is coalition government possible in the US system?

In many advanced democracies around the world these days, coalition governments are in place (Japan, England and Australia just to name a few). Is it 'technically' possible in the US - given the rise of 'third party' candidates (or 'fourth' 'fifth' whatever ...) - for Congress to operate in that fashion? Positions like 'House Majority/Minority Leader' and suchlike seem to be predicated on the existence of two opposing blocks. Could either the House or Senate operate if there were (say) three large parties dividing up the seats, instead of two?

How do I navigate racial politics with my family before our transracial adoption?

Help me find this "skeptic Marxist"

Help me find the name of this "Marxist Sceptic" thinker. I remember reading on aldaily.com within the last few months about a Marxist thinker who essentially came to the conclusion that though desirable, no socialist system of government would exist in the immediate future. I'm not sure if it was an obituary or something else.

International Relations 101

I read the news (BBC) daily and pick up The Economist once in awhile (it's expensive!). I'm curious and want to know what is going on in the world, but most of the time I can't put anything into perspective and understand what this means for the rest of the world or the possible impact on my life. For example, I'm not really sure why Bush started a war in Afghanistan, or the repercussions of the Gaza flotilla attack. I like how The Economist will analyze issues and say "X happened. This is bad because Y might happen now." or "A is mad because B did this in the past." in short, up front sentences. When I try to look people/events up on Wikipedia or Google, it's overwhelming because there is TOO much information to read, and I'm constantly having to look up more and more and this easily turns into hours of reading and 60 tabs open on my browser. How can I get a general grasp of international relations? [more inside]

How to vote in the Belgian election?

I have to vote in the upcoming Belgian election. I was born in raised in the USA, but have been to Belgium many times, and speak Dutch fairly proficiently. I can't, however, really get a handle on the platforms of the various political parties - help me figure out what they stand for, or where I can find official statements in English. I'm leaning toward Groen or SPA at the moment, so information regarding them would be particularly appreciated.
