"Team Clinton has succeeded in perpetuating one of the greatest evils I have seen in my lifetime. Her side has branded Trump supporters (40%+ of voters) as Nazis, sexists, homophobes, racists, and a few other fighting words. Their argument is built on confirmation bias and persuasion.

No one can be a bad person for opposing Hitler, right?"

I hope everyone has stocked up on popcorn!

For a variety of reasons, the companies will likely favor a donation approach rather than one that erodes prices across the board.
[...] I would guess that they would also likely favor a solution that involved their drugs rather than an approach that allowed generic drugs from India to flood the US market at low prices or one that set a precedent of waiving patent laws on drugs.
