This is a thread for those who represent the Left Wing of the Democratic Party. We believe in single payer universal health care. We believe in free public college tuition for students coming from families earning under 125K a year. In fact, this has just been passed in NYS. And we believe in a Dovish foreign policy where other nations and cultures are viewed as partners, not adversaries. "We have a dream", as Martin Luther King would say, and don't accept "the lesser of two evils" when it comes to choosing Presidential or Senate candidates because we know that "the lesser of two evils" is still an evil.
From our perspective, we are entering very dark times here with the victory of Donald Trump.
Thanks to the Clintons', the Democratic party has moved so far from the Left that it is at times indistinguishable from the Republican Conservative Party.
This thread is open to Left Wing Democrats and independents who would seriously consider voting for a candidate like Bernie Sanders and find some of Hillary Clinton's positions and the DNC out of touch and downright repulsive.
I am not looking for cynicism or an attitude of it can't be done. I want to discuss issues that are important to the Left Wing of the Democratic Party. And realistically speaking, what will it take to get a Left Wing candidate, such as Bernie Sanders, elected as President of the United States of America. Criticism is always welcome. But if you are going to come on here and put people down as a conservative or centrist Democrat, I'm going to show you the door with no warnings.
Social/political issues can be discussed here. This thread is a safe haven for those who feel deeply and have compassion for their fellow human being. We love diversity and champion it here.
We can also discuss how we lost this election to Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump and more importantly, what needs to be done, to win Congress back in 2018 and the Presidency in 2020.
This is a thread for those with a very liberal sensitivity.
If you are a proud liberal and believe in an eclectic mix of the best of capitalism and socialism, this thread is not only for you, but it's your thread and political/social home on SI.
