The election of President Donald Trump has left fear in the minds of many, causing millennials to flock to their “safe spaces” as universities blame the President for their rising suicide rates. Meanwhile, propaganda against Russia continues to grow and war in the Middle East continues to escalate.
Election 2016 offered proof that millions of voters had had it with a tone-deaf two-party system that seemed woefully out of step with their America. They served notice in many ways—switching parties, not voting, supporting independent candidates and movements instead—and created momentum for new political possibilities and choices.

Jack Rasmus dissects the Republican/Ryan proposal of this past week to repeal and replace the Obamacare Act. The proposal is first and foremost a $500 billion a year tax cut for corporations and the wealthiest 1%, as they no longer have to contribute anything to the plan.
