held a near 50 50 split the entire year. That was back when citizens had normal complaints about a President. Maybe a few Obama "Mom Jeans" jokes. After almost a decade under Obama Supervision a rhythm and a trust formed between the citizens and their President. Then he departed.

Knowledge is power. Ignorance is lack of knowledge. When a citizen gives up on their duty to understand the foreign world just as much as their domestic world they stand weak and ignorant. At the moment many believe "racist" President Trump is focused on the immigration ban and deportation for the wrong reasons. This is why it is so important for us to keep up with current events. Not only keep up with them, but take the time to understand them. Unfortunately, the media has an even bigger part in deportation and illegal immigrants than even Mr. Trump himself.
The media forages, filters, and packages information for us. Free of charge for the most part. Sometimes they fall short on the background reinforcement. They are getting better, however, the better part is our responsibility. If the news tells us Israel and Palestine are stuck in a crisis war we should know why, and possibly for how long. We should know were the Baltic States are, and their relationship with Russia. Where the South China Sea is and how the name of it has nothing to do with who has authority over it.
In America today one current event that is important is Trump and his immigration policies. For those who don't make the time to understand them leave breeding grounds for anger and protest. Here is one major facet.
According to the New York Times in 2014 the "Obama administration issued guidelines for deporting unauthorized immigrants." No protests. No racist leader accusations. One point.
Obama's immigration policy placed priority on gangsters and felons. Trump dissolved that priority. Followed by protests and implementation of more policy. Looks like the protesting didn't work. It never will. Peaceful or otherwise proresting will destroy our communities before it will move our President.
We must remove ourselves from racist concepts when dealing with our new President. It is only a distraction from the real solutions. Immigration policy is only the beginning. Or maybe protesters are right. If we all protest they probably won't enforce Marshall Law and the country won't succumb to major patches of anarchy. If you don't appreciate President Trump's immigration policy then I suppose his handling of widespread protest won't change your mind. But rhis is just one man's opinion.
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (PPACA) a.k.a. the Affordable Care Act (ACA) a.k.a. "Obamacare". What a mouthful! Most ard left in confusion when determing what it is the United States Government is fighting over. Let's give ubderstanding a chance. What is ACA?
In short the ACA was signed into law in 2010. Its main purposes were to provide health insurance to all Americans and lower healthcare insurance costs. rhe idea is that these goals would rhen lower Medicare (for "the poor") and Medicaid (for 65+). Solving many problems at once. One other thing the ACA did was restrict insurance companies in several ways including forcing them to take patients ib cases they would normally deny. The response from insurance companies?
House Speaker Paul D. Ryan reslonded for them by dropping this line about the ACA on CBS "Face The Nation", "It's not our job to make people do something that they don't want to do,". Really? So it's ok to mandate car insurance, workmen's compensation, but when people need insurance to guard their lives you don't want to drop a fine?
Health insurance is a lynchpin of our medical system. It allows prices to stay high enough to grow the field of medicibe with dedicated professionals. When people need healthcare and dont have insurance we all pay. Doctors pay too. They make the less making the field less desirable. The better physicians would leave and seek countries with higher pay. The vacuum will fill with less qualified physicians directly lowering our bar of health care. The ACA was set to prevent that.
A small progressive fine is an excellant way to promote the purchase of health care. Why shouldn't we need it as bad as any other insurance? Mr. Ryan no offense but I know you are being told to hedge health insurance profits and feeedoms by aboloshing the ACA. The rest of the voters will know soon enough.
The fact is even if they repeal it, Obamacare forced the realization that you can make adjustments to our health care and insurance industries. Next attempt? Trumpcare. The health insurance fix that is a compromise between the ACA and the failing system we had before.
And Ponce De Leon will get credit for Christopher Columbus' push for discovery. Sorry Obama. This is just one man's opinion.
