    I still don't see how he is addressing the pre-existing condition problem. What guarantee would there be that people--including those with pre-existing conditions--would come together for a group insurance policy?

    It sounds like an okay plan, but it doesn't fully address pre-existing conditions or the fundamental tax code problem. Here's what I would do: 1) Repeal Obamacare, 100% 2) Eliminate the employer healthcare tax exemption--this is the fundamental problem with the health insurance market 3) Make HSAs unlimited for medical expenses 4) Allow insurance purchases across state lines 5) People with pre-existing conditions have 3 years to sign up for gov't subsidies to treat their conditions. They should use this time to buy a policy to cover any other catastrophic conditions. 6) Gaps in coverage after 3 years will need to be filled by the states or charity.

    “We’re going to have insurance for everybody,” Trump said. “There was a philosophy in some circles that if you can’t pay for it, you don’t get it. That’s not going to happen with us.” People covered under the law “can expect to have great health care. It will be in a much simplified form. Much less expensive and much better. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-vows-insurance-for-everybody-in-obamacare-replacement-plan/2017/01/15/5f2b1e18-db5d-11e6-ad42-f3375f271c9c_story.html?hpid=hp_rhp-top-table-main_trump-interview-822pm:homepage/story&utm_term=.ede211f4ba17

    It's funny. If you look at the comments on the ACLU's page to have him pardoned, 75% of liberals want him hanged.

    Yes the employer healthcare tax exemption creates a huge distortion. Replace it with unlimited HSAs and allow competition across state-lines. Of course, you still have those with pre-existing conditions and can't afford treatment. There's two options for these people; they either won't get treatment or someone else will have to pay for it. But adjusting the tax code and making the other market oriented changes for insurance would reduce the cost of actual treatments and make the tax subsidies or charity more effective. The tax subsidies could wind down as people buy their own insurance plans earlier on in life. All of that is a tough sell though since our culture generally thinks all medical treatments should be paid by a third party.

    Yes :o I don't like to admit it, but it's very good at organizing people for local political purposes. There was a local zoning issue in my town recently and if it wasn't for facebook, it would have been very difficult to inform others and organize them to stop it.

    I've been using DuckDuckGo for searches and haven't missed Google at all. I am still stuck on Waze though--that will be tough to let go.

    I tried Tutanova, but it was lacking and I didn't like the domain name for my e-mail. I also don't think their end-to-end encryption is all that practical since you have to somehow give the receipient a password. You also have to trust them to hold your "key". I think the PGP method is better, although I do like how Tutanota encrypts the subject line. I recently bought an account from Kolab Now (it's around $5/month). Their servers are in Switzerland where they have some of the strongest privacy laws; they have "libertymail.net" as one of the e-mail domain options. I know this doesn't give you pure privacy since e-mail is inherently insecure (unless the entire message is encrypted), but I was tired of giving Google and the NSA an easy "smorgasboard" of personal information. To me it's a minor cost and it's very functional. I've recently started playing around with PGP encryption and it's relatively simple to set up (on one machine) but it's not useful if no one else uses it. I think everyone here should use PGP; it's a good way to protest surveillance. Here's a good tutorial for those unfamiliar: https://ssd.eff.org/en/module/how-use-pgp-windows I'd really like to use it more, so if if you have it set-up, send me an encrypted e-mail!: joshua.hunter@libertymail.net

    It's possible? I'm personally doing my best to ween myself off of GMail/Google. I signed up with a Switzerland based e-mail service (kolabnow.com). It costs $5 a month, but I'm tired of enriching the Google with my personal data and giving the NSA a smorgasbord of info they don't need. I'm still stuck on Google Voice and YouTube though.
