This is a bit off topic but I think the Democratic Party has a strong advantage because of their name.

Uninformed people will think that by supporting the Democratic Party they are supporting democracy and do not associate it with socialism.

On the other hand, the Republican Party probably makes millennials think of the Republic, who are the bad guys from the Star Wars films.

I am also willing to bet that a lot of uninformed Republicans think Libertarianism is the same as being a Liberal.
You're saying millenials are uninformed, or that they can't think?

In general uninformed people are incapable of making good decisions. Nothing new there...

That's how most of our congresscritters get elected and stay in office.

Anyway, who will the Democratic Party pick to run against Trump? That's the bottom line here.

Huh?  The republic were the good guys.  Also, this whole post is excessively simplistic.  While I generally think its difficult to underestimate the ignorance of the American people, I think you may have done so.


Oops, my bad.  I am not an SW fan.  Sure it is simplistic.  I am not an intellectual, just an average Joe really.

Yes, I may have.  But when both parties talk about democracy and being more democratic than to the uninformed, the party that has the word democracy in it very own name would probably sound more attractive by default.

Pocahontas predicted an imminent economic crisis unless the Trump administration and Congress quickly passes stiff regulations against the financial sector and significantly reduce middle class household debt.

“I’m seeing serious warning signs in the economy again — and I’m calling on regulators and Congress to act before another crisis costs America’s families their homes, jobs, and savings.”

Here are her proposed ways to head off the economic crisis;

• forgive over $600 billion in student loan debt (US Taxpayers must assume the debt)

Green Manufacturing Plan where government takes control of manufacturing (see link)

• Raise Minimum Wage

But wait. . . isn't that Socialism?    

Yep - it sure is.     No surprises there.   Grin    Grin

Actually Chief, it's the redistribution of wealth.

The purpose of the Soviet Union's various industrial plans (not to mention China under Mao's Iron Fist Shocked) was to create enough wealth and power, for the State, so that the Socialist State could complete it's task of turning everyone into good communists... Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Edit: Or killing them off... religious people were often found to be impossible to turn into good communists, so they were mostly killed off, or at least enough of them to cow the others.

Socialism is about rearranging humanity, and that is always painful and requires lots of force and a certain number of absolutely necessary murders. Sometime tens of millions of them. Shocked

Then the Socialist governments would/will be done and will wither away... Smiley Smiley Smiley... After enough people have been murdered.

Actually, Jeff, it's socialism.

Socialism is when the government takes control of production and distribution, which is exactly what Pocahontas' Green Manufacturing Plan hopes to do.

Not real socialism Chief, just a government dictated plan of action that will supposedly lead to real socialism.

In a real socialist system, wealth doesn't need to be redistributed, because everybody works to the best of their ability to produce as much as they can, so that everybody can simply take what they need... Smiley Smiley Smiley

Super.

In fact, way better than Warren's authoritarian plan...

Will Warren do better than Stalin did at creating a real socialist system?

I don't see it as likely. Lots of people will die Cry Cry Cry.

Many Americans embrace Warren's plans for government-controlled "Green" manufacturing.

The projected cost to US Taxpayers is in the Trillons of dollars.   Many workers would be laid off and the unemployment would be crippling to many families.

They will be forced out of the workplace and onto public assistance, which is exactly what the socialists want.

Once they have you dependent on the government, they have a Democrat voter for life.

Pocahontas wants to shift power from the private sector to the government. 

At least she's honest about that.   Not like Bernie.   He pretends that everything is free.   Angry

Right. Real socialists call them useful idiots and fellow travelers...

They, like you, are ignorant of most things.

You said socialism is an economic system.

Ignorance is something you can remedy Chief, but you'll have to read Marx and some Cato policy papers too. Smiley

Wherever you got the information that lead you to believe socialism is nothing but an economic system has mislead you. Cry
