15. You think what's referred to as the Deep State

has anything to do with social issues or cultural divides? Of course it doesn't. The real powers that run this country don't give a fuck if someone terminates a pregnancy or marries a same-gender partner. That's just political culture wars that GOP uses to get votes from their dumb hicks. You think that now everybody's forced to purchase insurance that the status quo has changed? Insurance companies are going down the shitter? You think somewhat expanded Medicaid (which many states did not do) is a real threat to powerful interests? Come on. The Affordable Care Act helps people and was needed, but it only passed because it was allowed to--it didn't threaten the status quo enough.
