    I have no difficulty in being able to help elect candidates who support single-payer. Try doing that in districts that routinely elect Republicans. I'm very frustrated by your inability to understand the way things are, or perhaps your unwillingness to allow yourself to acknowledge that truth.

    As for your remark on socialism, I'm a social democrat. Countries like Sweden have heavily taxed and regulated capitalism whose productivity is harnessed for the benefit of the people to a large extent. And if even that isn't satisfactory to you, seeing how far the US is from that now, well...

    Have a nice night. I think we long ago really exhausted any usefulness in a dialogue.

      Whatever makes you feel good.  We're all neoliberals until we can actually organize for something better, instead of making excuses.

      •  When you are able to elect a majority of the House (0+ / 0-)

        by yourself or even have one vote in a majority of the districts, get back to me. Have a good night.

        •  Yes, it's me and only me (0+ / 0-)

          who is advocating this.
