On trade, Trump-style protectionism is the socialist bookend, and only Bernie Sanders favors such an aggressive effort to protect American jobs by raising the prices consumers pay for imports. Trump has effectively, if mistakenly, vilified free trade, and few candidates these days are full-throated globalists. But Inslee, Hickenlooper, Delaney and to a lesser extent former Rep. Beto O’Rourke are all on record touting the virtues of open trade.
interesting take on some issues.
clearly not a complete assessment.
maybe i could consider one of the more capitalistic democrats...?...
although, the last time i found a democrat not totally insane that i could stomach the dems kicked him to the curb.
so one that i might support is not likely to get the nomination.

It's gonna come down to 2020 & how much more you want of fascist tRUmp vs how much u dislike the democratic nominee. Just like last time. Except exponentially more at stake.

Don't **** up. It's a real easy choice.

You keep calling Trump Fascist, what is Fascist about him?

Is he trying to stop free speech? trying to take guns away? Trying to force people to pay high taxes? trying to turn the country into a Communist/Socialist society like Hitler did.

It's easy to throw things out there, and you hate that about Trump. How about being better than Trump for once, and explain your accusations..... is that possible?

You are clueless about what fascism is. There is a far better case to be made for Bernie Sanders fascism based on facts not partisan rhetoric.

You don't know what fascism is, that is for certain.
Here are traditional and current definitions. The current GOP aspires to portions of both:


a form of radical, right-wing, authoritarian ultranationalism, characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition, and strong regimentation of society and of the economy, which came to prominence in early 20th-century Europe.
~

a form of government which is a type of one-party dictatorship. Fascists are against democracy. They work for a totalitarian one-party state. This aim is to prepare the nation for armed conflict, and to respond to economic difficulties. ... It stands for a centralized government headed by a dictator.

Among other facts, you should note how far TrumpO goes to control everything himself even when they are in the purview of congress or the courts.

While I agree both Bernie and Don have touted getting rid of NAFTA etc., they each have different policies. I don't think Bernie wants to raise tax on goods by 33%.
Unless you have some proof?

yeah when it says Bernie has a well developed plan to raise taxes the article neglects to mention tax the rich unlike Trump who taxed the middle class

Nice touch slipping the "Right Wing" portion in there.

Fascism: Websters: Rigid One Party Dictatorship, Forcible suppression of opposition, economic enterprise under centralized government control.

Fascist behavior, see: Nazis.

Nazism: National Socialist German Workers Party

I my view, and in reality, the American left is far more in line with the Fascist/Nazi mentality than anyone.

you must think that the 'Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea' is Democratic too.

Here is a shocker for you, Fascist's lie. Like all the time. LIterally, every chance they get, about everything. Remind you of anyone?
