Indeed, single payer, progressive taxes, stronger unions, higher minimum wages and a Green New Deal are essential to the progressive agenda.
Thanks for staying focused on what is important, Bernie.
When you think you have no choice but to start a war, think again. Wars promise to be quick, clean and decisive. Wars lie. They cause more problems than they solve, they just won't tell you that beforehand.

to demand dems drop the gravy train and work for us. Yes it is radical to demand that the black guy we supported for POTUS stop stealing our homes. Yes it is radical to demand that Hill stop being corrupt. Yes it is radical to demand punishment for Bill’s/Trumps best friend Jeff epstein to stop pedophilia.
Yes you are on Jackpine RADICALS

Forcing people to work without pay is akin to slavery.
