Is this what you lefties believe? bart, hard etc.

"Capitalism can be utterly vanquished, and will be utterly vanquished by socialism creating a new and much higher productivity of labour. This is a very difficult matter and must take a long time; but it has been started, and that is the main thing."

Cynthia Nixon on Tuesday proudly proclaimed herself a democratic socialist.

The actress-turned-candidate for governor explicitly embraced the democratic socialist label for the first time in a statement provided to Politico.

“Yes. Some more establishment, corporate Democrats get very scared by this term but if democratic socialism means that you believe health care, housing, education and the things we need to thrive should be a basic right not a privilege then count me in,” Nixon said in the statement.

Nixon, who is backed by the left-leaning Working Families Party, is challenging two-term incumbent Gov. Andrew Cuomo in the Sept. 13 primary.

Nixon spokeswoman Lauren Hitt pointed out Nixon endorsed two candidates who are members of the Democratic Socialists of America — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who defeated Rep. Joe Crowley, and Julia Salazar, a candidate who is challenging Queens state Sen. Martin Dilan.

It is so comforting to have a bogeyman like socialism so you repubs don't have to think.

 

No analysis, monkey say "socialism".

 

Besides, socialism is probably preferable to the fascist govt you are busy creating.

 

Hitler would be proud!

You can get a cheap copy of Wealth of Nations on Amazon if you need a primer.

 

Of maybe there's one in the library of your lavishly taxpayer funded locale.
