    Default Social Democracy Is 100% American

    Excellent article! I really cannot add anything to this.

    Appearing late last week on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Senator Claire McCaskill of Missouri insisted that Democratic presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont “is too liberal to gather enough votes in this country to become president.” Indeed, responding to the fact that candidate Sanders is not only drawing big, enthusiastic crowds to campaign events in Iowa and New Hampshire, but also pulling within 10 points of frontrunner and party favorite Hillary Clinton in certain state polls, McCaskill said: “It’s not unusual for someone who has an extreme message to have a following.”

    Extreme? McCaskill’s remarks indicate that we may be in more trouble than we thought. For some time we have feared that Republican politicians were losing their minds. Now it seems we must worry, as well, that Democratic politicians are losing their memories.

    Clearly, McCaskill’s attack — which, to me, smacked of red baiting — was intended as a dismissal of Bernie Sanders’s candidacy based on the fact that Sanders, who has repeatedly won elections in Vermont as an independent and then caucused with the Senate Democrats, is a self-described “democratic socialist” or “social democrat.” And of course, we all know that social democracy is not just unpopular in the United States, it is un-American.

    Hilary is all hype and money and nothing but. She will lose to the GOP so the in-crowd and wannabe in-crowd should quit wasting time and money on her. She sucks. She has nothing for the workers. She helped with the Korean trade deal and TPP. She's all about fake.
    A rich hippie faking for the rich. Most probably a warmongerer also.....All about the world and spreadinv middle class wealth to the world...Not her own rich wealth.
    I hate the fad-ish headlines about her....from writers who want to suck up to her clique ...NOBODY WANTS HER!

    I don't think I care to place a bet on that ... especially considering the full clown bus of republican wannabes.
    Sounds like something bean might say.

    I'm not bean.....but Democrat does not mean pro labor. The worst job losses for unions came from Carters deregulation and Clintons NAFTA. Hilary played role in the Korean deal.
    I do not trust the Clintons.
    bean would hate her thinking she IS a Dem.
    I don't trust her because I'm certain she is not pro-labor.
    She is Wall St.
    She is fake.

    EXCELLENT is the word to describe this article ABFwife.From the Brilliant Thomas Paine to FDR'S ''I Welcome Their Hatred'' to Senator Sander's trying to ''Encourage The Fight In Us'' comments.Another example of not only the Mainstream Media but members of his OWN PARTY trying to PAINT Sander's as a FRINGE WHACKO!! All SURVEYS indicate that Americans FAVOR ''SOCIAL DEMOCRACY''.

    And I agree with everything you said. But the reality is, Clinton could win considering the republican contenders that have announced their candidacy.
    Bottom line for me, no more Clinton's, no more Bush's ... but that doesn't leave me much of a choice.
    Let's just wait and see who gets picked on both sides.
    However I am almost sure I won't vote republican. Not a clown is on that bus I would consider.
