I think equality is pretty damn important. I actually think not having economic equality in the USA impedes on our “…pursuit of happiness.” It sucks that communism has such a negative connotation due to the bastardization of the philosophy by the Soviet Union. I think that if people learned some of the talking points they’d support the philosophy here.
Bernie only has slight tinges of communist ideology in his views and he wants to increase how much the poorest get paid to pull them up at their employers’ expense, pass the burden of healthcare to the corporations, and increase the taxes of people rich enough to send their kids to private school in order to increase the quality of public schools. The Bern-Man would be fantastic in pulling people up into the middle class. I wish the primaries were a little longer. With some more time he would have caught Hillary.
Now we’re stuck with an ego-maniac (Trump) and a corrupt crony-capitalist (Clinton). I’m sure the Clinton poison is less harmful than the Trump poison, but damn…we, the people, really fucked up this election cycle. -Carl Miller
