At the Rio Grande Foundation, we feel very confident that the ideas of free markets and individual liberty are the best methods for economic and social organization. We have repeatedly debated the merits of various such policies over the years.
Unfortunately, the political left – from college campuses to the media to congressional town halls – is increasingly unwilling to tolerate differing views.

Looks interesting. Unfortunately, I teach auto mech and rocketry on Tuesdays. Dialog is essential in every facet of government – church, neighborhood, APD, APS, City, County, State, and Federal. I attended the recent installation ceremony for new APS board members where I heard several board members tout the benefits of community dialog. Have we heard any dialog on their “gender identity” policy where children choose gender based on their “feelings?” I testified regarding the scientific determination of gender. There are only two sex chromosomes – x and y. There are only two possibilities for gender – xx and xy. Every cell of the human body is either xx or xy. Plastic surgery can make me look like anything, including an animal. But every cell of my body is human xy. Trump rescinded the federal mandate for a gender identity policy. It’s time to use some common sense … and science.
The problem is that voters JUST elected a union-picked extreme leftist school board in Albuquerque. They are NOT going to do anything to change this policy. If anything they will double down.
