In 2008 I held a sign saying “No Socialism/NoBama” it sparked outrage in left-wing voters in Massachusetts. “Oh how can you say that? Democrats aren’t socialists! Obama’s not a socialist. That’s terrible!”
Yeah? Listen to powerful Michigan Democrat Congressman John Conyers [yes, the one who’s wife is serving time in federal prison] talk to a gathering of Democratic Socialists of America. He could not make his agenda – and theirs – any clearer.
Unemployment in Michigan is at 13.1%; double that in the greater Detroit area. Did you hear Conyers say that Obama has to do something to create jobs? Like what John, – raise taxes?
How powerful is Conyers? He’s been ‘serving’ in Congress since 1965. He chairs the Judiciary Committee, and he is a founder of the Congressional Black Caucus. He is considered the 6th most liberal congressman to serve since WWII. He ran unopposed in 2008. His 14th District is 60% Black and considered “solid Democrat”. This year he’s being opposed by teacher and businessman Don Ukrainec.
