We could use a president like FDR again. If and when one comes along, they'll be smeared with the label 'socialist,' just as he was. It's worn out whatever meaning it had. When you set yourself against the idea that anyone could ever believe a politician is on their side, you've thrown the baby out with the popular government bathwater. Would you feel better knowing social democrats were part of this republican form of government, any more than if it were democratic socialists instead? Because sim salabim, they are. Even if they weren't, some of the most decent people that were would be smeared as socialists anyway. If not Russky spies in this Clinton Red Scare hysteria.
