    The headline to this little article about Brannon saying democracy is socialism says that he says it "because he is really, really dumb," but I have to disagree. He may actually be dumb, don't get me wrong. He hasn't done much to prove otherwise, but the actions of the Republican party have proven time and again that they hate democracy, from their cutting away at voting rights to their gerrymandering districts to their struggle to make the US a one party state to the Republican half of the SCOTUS making it legal to buy politicians. Using their favorite hate/fear term of "socialism" in conjunction with "democracy" is just another way of showing how much contempt they have for the voice of the people.

    •  Well, to be fair, (0+ / 0-)

      the headline does say "possibly" because he's dumb.  There's some room in that possibly for alternate interpretations, after all.

      ;-)

      Thanks for joining the conversation, though!
