There's a lot of propaganda in Republican media that the Universal healthcare (Medicare for All) proposed by Bernie Sanders is such an Utopian thing implemented only in socialist countries. Since many of you coming from India also never had any Govt paid healthcare plan, you probably would end up believing that it's such a rare thing. Here's the truth: "Today, 18 countries offer true universal health coverage: Australia, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, the Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom." Wow, so many advanced countries in the list, right? So, don't fall prey for such misinformation. Read this article to understand the basics of universal healthcare systems and how different countries implement it in different ways. verywellhealth.com/difference-between…

Long timers in US would know how unfair and weird the electoral college system of US is. For newcomers to US, I thought I will introduce the electoral college. Basically, instead of deciding the President based on whoever gets the maximum number of votes across the country (popular vote), it's decided based on declaring a winner in each state and the number of electors associated with the states is used to calculate who got the majority. For ex. California has 55 electors and Wyoming has 3 electors. Even though this magic number is supposed to be proportional to the population of that state, it doesn't exactly work out like that (as any one with basic math knowledge can figure out). Because of this, voters in Wyoming (have you even heard of it) have more power than voters in California and hence the controversy! If you're interested in learning more, read this article that analyses the unfairness in much more detail. theconversation.com/whose-votes-count…
