1. Many of these center-right Democrats

don't know how to handle the left actually pushing back and demanding things. They were so used to the "left" just asking the corrupt DNC to be less bad than the Republicans, and when that has resulted in disaster, it no longer works. Well, they got nothing else, but scaring you or trying to shame you into voting for a corrupt candidate whose policies will result in a reduction in your living standards (less so than the alternative!). So, yes, Sanders is the next "Nader", by that do we mean giving us massive consumer protection and environmental laws, something like the EPA and OSHA? If so, sign me up! Go Nader 2.0!

2. Yup. And Bernie is going to raise your taxes to pay for all this free stuff

It's shocking how quickly they jump in to shout down any attempts to fix our obvious problems and finally make America the enlightened democracy it has long purported to be.

4. Our tax priorities are so far out of whack...

...a re-organization is exactly what's needed.
