“Ted Cruzs ability to bring out the absolute worst in me, to turn me from a person who is amused and maybe even inspired by absurdity and human folly - is dangerous, too”.
You were neither amused or ever inspired. The meth labs out in your neck of the woods are certainly wafting your way. I think you suffer from delusions of grandeur because someone gave you a #2 pencil and big chief tablet to write on for one of the most liberal rags in the country. And if you bothered to engage what intellect you do possess, you would understand that no one has stopped you from buying your precious insurance! And if you like it so much, why don’t you personally volunteer to purchase policies for those who are being forced into it.
