    I believe access to easy credit and government subsidized loans, specifically student loans, is more of a factor in income inequality than tax policy. And has also contributed to wage stagnation.

    Agreed. I limit my oil intake to about 1 - 2 grams omega 3 and rarely cook with oil and when I do its high temp olive oil. Most cooking oils are garbage.

    1) I understand. Either way I wouldn't agree much with their positions. Prison reform/criminal justice reform is something I could though.

    I agree. The people of Okinawa are a great example and Japan too. They eat ALOT of seafood rich in omega 3 and from what I have read not alot of processed grains. I believe healthcare is self care. It starts at home. But, I believe a lack of education is a major factor. People should be educated on nutrition in high school at a minimum. Preventable disease has to be a major driver to the elevated costs.

    1) Bernie Sanders is one. I use socialist as an identifier because that is how he labeled himself. Take the girl from New York who won her primary and calls herself a democratic socialist. What I saw was the democrat party immediately elevating her to the new face of the party and put her in the spotlight. wether she wins or not doesnt matter. The ideas are out there now. And some potential presidential candidates and house candidates adopting some of her platform. They aren't getting elected yet but the foot is in the door and the party showed which direction it wants to go. 2) When it comes to wanting to legislate morality or affecting individual liberty (gay marriage for example) I have a negative position. Im fine with fiscal conservative views.

    I agree. The GOP has changed, the D party is having an identity crisis right now. The no borders, abolish ICE and free this and that is making its way into their platform. I wish we had more options. I honestly dont know where I fall on the spectrum, maybe more libertarian, but I cant bring myself to support somebody who wants to give up our national sovereignty and take more of my paycheck. I make my best effort to support the individual.

    When was the last time a GOP candidate won Ohio,Florida, and Pennsylvania? That should tell you something is different.

    I dont mind moderate democrats like Joe Donnelly but I hope the moronic socialists dont bogart the democrat party and further divide things.

    Should we let New York and California dictate the agenda for 48 other states? More specifically NYC and LA?

    Here is a smaller example and one I am familiar with because my wife and her family are from Illinois. Chicago politics controls Illinois. Do you think city dwellers understand or have the best interests of their fellow illini in mind? What the hell do chicagoans know about farming for example? The heartland feeds America but people want to dismiss half their country as deplorable. The half that feeds them.

    Straw man? Are you happy with the electoral college results? All I was trying to say was the electoral college exists to protect the majority of STATES from a minority of STATES. America is NOT a democracy but intead, a representative republic for a very good reason. Thats because a democracy is mob rule and a system that quickly fails. The federal goverments main role is to protect and represent the states, not individuals. States protect individuals. America is to big to rely on the feds to fix everything. Ultimately peoples differences are just a difference in philosophy.
