  •  "Socialist mandate"? What nonsense. (5+ / 0-)

    Show me a left-side party the farthest fringes of which proposes nationalizing the oil industry, and I'll show you socialism.

    In the meantime, these Dems are just trying to get us back to some kind of sanity.

    •  Ummm, actually...ME (0+ / 0-)

      Coal, oil, natural gas, currently-for-profit health-care, currently-for-profit infrastructure (including power, internet), water.

      Never been a socialist in my life, but we never gifted the private sector with these perpetual-money machines, any more than we meant to turn every community into a captive work-force...but the private sector has CERTAINLY used these gifts against the nation for its own advantage - and we continue to pay them to do it.

      Time to say, "thanks for proving and developing these areas;  please accept your insane centuries-long profits as a token of our extreme.  We'll take it from here"

      This year, I'm doing something I've never done before - I'm voting a straight Democratic ticket

        Even Bernie Sanders (not a Dem, of course) has not proposed such things. Of course there are individual voters who support them, but they are not a part of the national debate.

          ...maybe it'll help my comprehension when I start back....
