    Only the tip of the iceberg kiddo. By the time they are done with the new and improved trumpcare, the long term impact will ripple for years to come.

    There are just so many things I could reply at this point. Probably the most important book I have and will read this year is On Tyranny by Timothy Snyder. I highly recommend it.

    Millennials I talk to can't explain socialism, but yet they want it. Others don't have a clue about history prior to WWII let alone WWI.

    Socialism has more than one acceptable definition. Many equate it with communism which is both political and economic. While it can be a step towards communism it can also be an end point. It can be only an economic system--socialist economic system with a democratic political system. Most socialist ideals today are economic, not political. Systems change. Just because a system was one way in the past does not say it can't grow into a better system. Modern socialism at its core is a decent idea.

    Millennials might not know about socialism, but they do see other developed countries provide their citizens a lot more for the money they take in on taxes. We pay so much for military that we can't even keep up our infrastructure, let alone modernize it.

    I like Canadians and Canada. Sadly, I hear they're building a wall along the border with the US....
