Vote.

Protesting is fine, but voting is necessary.

oops, meant to post @2 in the non-student article. But whatever, eventually they'll be able to vote.

Vote. Always, ALWAYS vote.

Tell your friends and family to vote too. Always.

Protesting is great and all, but your vote is your power.

When you're accustomed to privilege, equality feels like oppression.

@18, if I could have babies, I'd send you to the front of the line. The snark about asking your employer to pay for car insurance is gold, btw.

But yeah, the entire idea of employer-based health coverage is bizarre to begin with, and completely and utterly anti-american and anti-capitalism. I haven't studied the history of it, but honestly, how the hell did this country come to embrace employers being responsible for their employees health care, for fucks sake? Makes no sense to me.

One other thing:

Our current system is anti-business.

Companies provide health insurance to their workers as part of their total compensation, thus actual salaries are lower. This makes U.S. companies less competitive to foreign workers who already have health coverage and don't need it from their job, and it eats into the profit margins of the business.

You'd think republicans, with all their bullshit pro-business talk, would jump all over this as a great reason to have government funded healthcare so that our companies can go be more appealing around the world.

@4,

Not sure if serious...?

I'm guessing Charles staged the photo, browbeaten look and all, to satirize Trump's staged photo.

We should all be fighting in defense of the First Amendment just as vehemently as the gun nuts fight in defense of the Second Amendment.

Trump is openly attacking the free press.
