Does Robin Hanson read the political prediction markets which he co-invented? If he read them, he would see that we’-re going to get a big Democratic swipe, in November 2008. The American people will get rid of the neo-cons, the warmongers, and other right-wing nuts.
Then, if you wanted to “-lobby”- for the prediction markets, you would get your message thru using either a Democratic or bi-partisan vehicle —-not the right-wing American Enterprise Institute. What weight will those right-wing people carry next November? They’-ll be finished —-until a brand-new Newt Gingrich alike pops up in the years 2020.
Get a ride in K Street with the right people, doc —-that is, in our case, like it or not, the leftists.
