Stillin - maybe because NPR is a tad left thus the right-wing distrust? It's a tough time right now with the federal corruption against not only the president but the people of the United States and their choice. Everyone better open their eyes -- Trump may have been favored by some on FOX but the other networks are controlled by the Dems/Clinton and now the extreme left. It's hard to believe the people of one nation are so divided for two different types of government - such a dichotomy -- there needs to be a level of respect for debate and facts.
Full scale socialism is scary but there needs to be better healthcare (and costs), etc., etc. Our gov't spends so much helping other countries (fine to help others) but so many here need care, housing, medical -- it's not perfect by any means.
