I’m 91.4% sure Sanders will be the next US president

I’ve been staying on top of the political news and I must say the Republican Party is going through a PR emergency — has been for awhile.

I’m 91.4% sure Bernie Sanders will be our next president, but explaining how I got to that number would be like explaining how to divide 0 by 0.

I’ve been staying on top of the political news and I must say the Republican Party is going through a PR emergency — has been for awhile.

To sum up this last week: Hillary is being investigated by the FBI and tried to pull a fast one using her own husband to slam Bernie Sanders; O’Malley dropped out; Trump continues to call Jeb “low-energy,” Jeb told his mom on Trump and now Mamma Bush is campaigning for Jeb; people are just starting to realize Marco Rubio is running, and Cruz is all smiles but going down in the polls each day.

Life Insurance? More like Death Assurance

I never understood why it’s called “life insurance.” I understand that it’s supposed to be about protecting life, but that’s not what the United States does. The US treats people after they are sick, not before. Medical insurance is about protecting life by paying for health care after the fact, but by that standard, it should be called “death insurance” — money paid to cover one’s death. The United States needs to switch to socialized medicine, like Canada, like Norway, like Sweden, and Denmark. All of these places have a magical system of actual health care which some describe as being preventively. It’s time, in 2016, to make this magical system a reality.

Support socialized health care. Support Bernie Sanders for president.
