Thank you, and I agree, but I recognize that this is a distinctly anti-socialist (and markedly anti-social) era.
That said, it remains a mystery why liberals are trying to put a “democratic socialist” button on Sen. Sanders lapel. He is not one, nor do today’s liberals support democratic socialism. Proof: They just spent the years of another administration celebrating middle class elitism while ignoring the consequences of our deregulated capitalism – our poverty crisis. (Nope, not the same thing as our low wage problem.)
Please check this out for yourself: Democratic socialism includes a legitimate welfare system. It is reality-based, recognizing that not everyone is able to work (health, etc.) and that there often aren’t jobs for all. It provides aid for those who aren’t of current use to employers. Sen. Sanders used to support this, but no longer does, and neither do today’s liberals. Sen. Sanders stands explicitly with workers, to the exclusion of the jobless. Ask him. This establishes his support for another eight years of laissez-faire capitalism.
