It would seem one of the most vexing concern for the citizens and government of the United States of America would be healthcare.

Identity Politics: The New Fundamentalism

For years, my friends and I have been discussing how great it would be if a true political outsider, not beholden to the entrenched political norm, would somehow find a way to circumvent the establishment and come to power. Well, that just happened. Fuck…
