"If that is what you're saying it would be helpful if you simply came out and said so. That way everyone would understand that you are a capitalist apologist and an ideologue who will stop at nothing to shout down and socialist-tinged rhetoric."

That's perhaps unnecessarily stern; this is after all the Democrats' house.

It is interesting to me though that one artifact of our ossified two-party system is the exclusion of leftist voices from polite conversation and government generally.

Governments many Democrats admire and cite as examples of why many Democratic policy positions are good much more often have active, participating communist and socialist parties.

It is really not a lack of precision to say that the USA is unique in its reflexive hatred, and general ignorance of, all things leftists.

Certainly it was not my intention to beat up on Democrats by posting what a good measure of folks here seem to agree is valuable history.
