Winning elections is not my first consideration.
I'm out to change the world. To make it a better place.
I caucus with the Democrats, but I am no Democrat and I don't care if they win or lose. But they are the defacto "socialist" party in our two party system and with some work and maybe a little therapy the Democrats will eventually come out of the closet and admit they are socialists.
The more we use the word socialist and demand social justice and equality the more people will forget the cold war and begin to believe that they deserve social justice and equality. Don't look at Soviet Russia or Venezuela as examples, Look at Switzerland and Sweden and a dozen more where the government serves the people and not multinational corporations.
Socialism is the future or else there is no future. One percent of the American population owns about 90% of the nation's wealth. We blew through late stage capitalism in the 90s...what we're seeing now is end stage capitalism.
The part where we make the planet unlivable for anything but rats and cockroaches.
