Response to CajunBlazer (Reply #22)

30. I don't know, Cajun. When you push me aside as "very liberal" & "13%", does that mean believing

in regulating industry to protect people is very liberal? Like Banks and fossil fuel cos?

Believing in fighting for the right to form unions so workers aren't abused is too liberal?

Believing prisons for profit is astoundingly immoral, too liberal?

Wanting Made in the USA to not be a thing of the past, liberal?

Wanting Moneyed Interests to not run our govt "representatives" and considering this outright corruption? Too liberal?

Wanting public schools to have the support & the funds to educate children effectively? Not wanting people to profit off of that?

Wanting college to be affordable like it was when I put myself through?

Not wanting corps like GE & Verizon to go YEARS without paying taxes?

Not wanting endless war so that corps can profit & thousands of good innocent people die? Too liberal?

Wanting fracking to be regulated with oversight to ensure safety & to fight for ending the unDemocratic banning of local fracking bans which people voted on?

Not wanting water privatized? This is liberal?

13% far left? Really?

These are Democratic principles. They aren't that far left. And having the most corrupt candidate (the most purchased politician) in my lifetime run & having the entire party elite go to striking pains to ensure her nomination completely stinks to me. Is that too liberal? Wanting the corrupt purchase of our party to not pay off by leaving us with a corrupt republican DINO in office?

To want the Democratic Party to BE Democratic is too liberal? Too far left?

Then maybe the party has left me.
