Campaigning in the USA

I’m in the middle of writing a post about the benefits of a single-payer healthcare system. The inspiration for that came from a CNN Town Hall with Senator Kamala Harris (Dem., California) last week. Senator Harris is running for president in the 2020 election. It’s almost two years until that election, and already multiple people are declaring their candidacy.

A couple of days ago, Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, did a slick presentation announcing he had proof that Iran was lying when they signed the Iran Nuclear Agreement. (It’s official name is the JCPOA – Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.) Therefore, his logic went, the deal should be torn up.
