Socialist Sanders threatened to give Socialist AOC a very 'important role' if elected.

    Repeat the word "socialist" as many times as you want. It only underscores how anti-social their opposition is.

    She is an open socialist. She is a member of DSA.

    I'm still not seeing the threat. People love to ***** and ***** about Sanders wanting his hand in our pocket and "boo socialism bad!", but 8% of my paycheck is still taken out by our current government, on top of every other tax we have to pay.

    Just wait until its 40% when you hit more than one bracket, 14% sale tax, property taxes, etc. Both the Fed and Province tax income. That is what I face in Canada. That is the type of country Sander uses for a model. If he gets his way the middle class is going to see a lot of their income go into taxes to pay for all the programs he wants. Canada taxes the rich as well. It does not cover the costs of those social programs

    I've literally read nothing to that effect. Do you have sources for it? Because I've been following his stances pretty closely since last election, and while income tax might increase there's been no mention of sales tax increases, and quite a bit of emphasis on a rehaul to medical doing away with copay and premiums.

    Also right now, at this moment, my sales tax is 9.3%.

    In the interest of responding to the conflating of the word socialist, I'll do the same in return and assert that anyone who supports Trump is a member of the Trump Cult and has sworn to repeat the Trump Cult Party Line as well as saying that anything he does, including violating any laws is 100% perfect . So keep it up Trump Cult minions.

    No fan of Bernie but I don't understand why you continue to use the word "Socialist" as an insult against people who openly identify with the term. Saying "Socialist AOC" is redundant. Everyone knows she considers herself a socialist.

    Tis the way of RF. Everyone needs a prefix,
    eg, "socialist", "derpy", "fundamentalist".

    Any day when "rancid" or "fetid" doesn't
    precede "Scot", I declare it a victory.

    Excellent! I support her all the way! I actually LIKE my fellow humans, and I WANT to live in a society that takes care of everyone before it allows personal greed and selfishness to hold sway.

    I don't care. As long as they continue with robbing Peter to pay Paul and impose a mega nanny state they remain for what they are. Socialists. Maybe even worse if you give them time.
