There apparently really was collusion in the Presidential campaign. It was just not between Trump and Russia. First, it was between Democrat National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the Clinton campaign to make sure no one but Hillary Clinton could secure the Democrat nomination for President,making sure Bernie Sanders in particular had no path to victory no matter how many votes he won. Second, after Hillary secured the nomination, US Attorney General Loretta Lynch apparently gave assurances to Schultz that the investigation into Hillary would not be allowed to go far enough to derail her campaign to win the White House. Plenty of collusion occurred, just not by Trump or the GOP and the Ruskies.

The saddest aspect of the Obamacare replacement debate is that only a handful of Republicans in the US House and three conservatives and one libertarian conservative in the US Senate do not take it that healthcare is a (new) entitlement. President Trump apparently believes healthcare is a universal right. In this aspect, the GOP mainstream and Democrats are in almost complete accord and we as a nation are careening toward single payer healthcare that will render America a socialist country and give our government sweepingly intrusive power. The government will soon have even more say over what we eat, drink, smoke, and drive. The government will have the ability to lavish care on favorites and deny care to dissidents. Universal care will be a lever to push more gun control. Single payer government rationed healthcare is the gateway to tyranny.

John F Kennedy, who was an ardent anti-Communist and a tax-cutter, would not recognize the Democrat Party of today. Today's Democrat leaders are darn near Communists. What differentiates Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren from Marxists? The shift to the hard Left is not winning the Democrats many elections.

Rockefeller Republicans took a pounding back in the day when they campaigned as Democrat-lite. The voters realized they need not vote for Democrat-lite when they could elect real Democrats like Jimmy Carter. I think one thing Donald Trump has taught is no matter how you are going to govern, try to sound like Ronald Reagan when pursuing election to office. Mimic Reagan and sound conservative (whether or not you really are) is a lesson GOP candidates have learned, and it is winning them elections.
