Political Math is written by an individual with far too much free time on his hands. This blog is primarily a suppliment to the YouTube channel 10000Pennies, which shows data visualizations on political topics.

The problem with the videos is that, if every tiny calculation were shown in the videos, they would be boring. However, I don’t want it to look like I’m trying to hide the data. The beauty of what I do is that the data is free for anyone to look at… the only problem is that only a few people really look at it and even fewer people understand it. So this blog is in place to get into the details for those who are either curious or skeptical.

As for me (this is an “About” page, after all), I’m an exceptionally unimportant person. I have a very normal job in a very normal city. I’m not looking for fame or a fight. I just know that we live in a world filled with numbers and I want to help people understand what those numbers mean.

    Thank you for doing this. There is too much political rhetoric and not enough logic, with credibility, for the average citizen (me) to come to his/her own conclusion.

    I liked your “The National Debt Road Trip May 15, 2009”.

    I wish you would revise it during the Bush Admin and show his spending when he had a:
    – Republican Congress (first 6 years)
    – Democratic Congress (last 2 years).

    There is a big difference in spending.

    Please send me a copy.


  4. Hi,

    I just watched your video on the road trip, it was great. I produce a small political podcast headed by a fellow blogger. I was wondering if you would be interested in coming on the show in the future and talking to us for 15 to 30 minutes about your blog and your videos?

    What is your name, your bio and credentials?

  6. I just watched your youtube videos. I have no words… you have taken difficult concepts and made them very easy to grasp. Truly amazing. I’ll be watching for more. I’m sure this administration will provide you with plenty of blog/video fodder.
