Open primaries

South Carolina Republican officials don't like a ruling made by U.S. District Judge Michelle Childs allowing open voting in primaries, the system that's used in the state now and has been for decades. Under that plan, voters can choose which party's primary they want to participate in from year to year. But lawyers for the GOP are asking Childs to examine whether that might be unconstitutional. Childs, in her earlier ruling, had said that if Republicans want to exclude people from their process, they could choose a new method such as conventions or petitions.

A broader definition of entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurs are somewhat of a mascot for the U.S. economy -- nothing embodies the American dream more than an entrepreneur. Consequently, we've been trained to think there's a positive correlation between the number of start-ups and the health of the economy. But Daniel Isenberg, professor of entrepreneurship, and Fernando Fabre, president of Endeavor Global, argue otherwise. Real, high impact entrepreneurship comes from "scale-ups" instead. Scale-ups are growing businesses that promote a "long-term entrepreneurship," eventually leading to more innovation and increased economic health. The continued growth of established businesses does more for the economy than a high number of ...

A fair number of state lawmakers have therefore begun to advocate what politicians always advocate when they don't want to make tough decisions about the budget: raising taxes, specifically the fuel tax.
