66. Calling Sen Sanders a socialist is low. He is far from a socialist but the Republicons and

 

apparently conservative Democrats use is as a pejorative. Look up the definition of socialism and you will learn that he doesn't come close. He is a Democratic Socialist just like FDR. But I've noticed that the Conservative Democrats really don't like FDR. In fact President Clinton signed away the repeal of the Glass-Steagall and H. Clinton supports that decision.

There are two sides to this fight. The progressive sides wants to see social programs bolstered like FDR, and the Conservative side wants to help big corporations more like Reagan.

Since you disparage Sen Sanders as a socialist does that mean you disagree with his desire to help social programs? Which social programs that he supports do you want to cut? HRC wants to enhance SS. Not sure what that means but I bet it means cut services and raise the eligibility age. I bet you know her stance.
