On the other hand, we have a major political party that has as a central platform the refusal to expand health care to all, a Surgeon General nominee blocked by opposition from the gun lobby, a public in Texas that voted to reduce legal liabilities for doctor negligence and conservatives saying ebola is a plot to put people in camps run by FEMA.
In the background is the AIDS epidemic not so long ago that Ronald Reagan & people on the right ignored and said was God's judgement, while many gay folks and gay allies looked the other way as long as possible saying addressing AIDS was an attack on the gay community.
