Opinion page editor Rick Holmes and other writers blog about national politics and issues. Holmes & Co. is a Blog for Independent Minds, a place for a free-flowing discussion of policy, news and opinion. This blog is the online cousin of the Opinion section of the MetroWest Daily News in Framingham, Mass. As such, our focus starts there and spreads to include Massachusetts, the nation and the world. Since successful blogs create communities of readers and writers, we hope the \x34& Co.\x34 will also come to include you.

For those looking to apply current headlines to the current U.S. Senate race, note that Ed Markey “voted against reauthorizing the Patriot Act in 2005, 2010 and 2011. And he voted against reauthorizing the Foreign Intelligence Security Act last year.”  In 2011, he uncovered 1.3 million requests from law enforcement for cell phone users’ location data. He authored the 1998 Children’s Online Privacy Act.

Gomez, on the other hand, won’t tell us what he did in the war on terror, won’t reveal the clients of his hedge fund, and gives Obama “the benefit of the doubt” on domestic surveillance. But he is highly critical of the IRS and says voters distrust government.

Does it matter?
