Re: Except ...
Finally, the more enlightened progressives are getting stronger, but the democratic party are still beholden to corporate donors, and in the rest of the sane world would be considered more right wing than most right wing parties.
Damn those progressives and their socialised healthcare, right?, but never mind the republican socialist bailouts to the banks, and the socialist pay off to farmers, and the socialist subsidies given to oil and gas, and of course, the biggest socialist project, the military.
Don't even mention the downright communist laws allowing pharma to price-fix drugs.
Still, don't call the police if you're attacked, or the fire service if your house is on fire, or even drive down public roads.. You wouldn't want to be branded socialist, would you?
