1/15/19-1/17/19 
Political Theory, philosophy and ideology    What is ​political ideology​?  In social studies, a political ideology is a certain set of ethical ideals, principles, doctrines, myths or  symbols of a social movement, institution, class or large group that explains how society should work and  offers some political and cultural blueprint for a certain social order.   
“A record number of families have tried to cross the border in recent months, overwhelming officials 
at the border and creating a new kind of humanitarian crisis.” 
 
Most drugs are seized at ports of entry, not along the open border 
The Drug Enforcement Administration says that heroin, cocaine and 
methamphetamine are primarily brought into the United States in vehicles entering 
through official border crossings.  
90% of the Heroin seized in the us is at the official border crossings.    
Studies have found no link between Immigration and Crime. 
 
What is ​Random Sampling​? 
In statistics, a simple random sample is a subset of individuals chosen from a larger set. Each individual  is chosen randomly and entirely by chance    What are ​Political Beliefs​?  An ideology is a set of opinions or beliefs of a group or an individual. Very often ideology refers to a set of  political beliefs or a set of ideas that characterize a particular culture. Capitalism, communism,  socialism, and Marxism are ideologies    The bases of political analysis   
What is ​Normative Political Theory​ (which is a subfield of political science)? 
“Normative political theory offers explicit arguments and proposes answers to the significant “should”  questions in the political world.”   What is ​Empirical Political theory​?   “which relies upon observation and analysis of real-world data as it attempts to apply the methods of  science in order to develop descriptive and explanatory knowledge claims about the political world.”
