9. Use the term Democratic Socialism to get rid of the baggage on the term Socialism

 

We already are a Democratic Socialist Republic. Republic just means a representative Gov. and "Democratic", means we voters choose our representatives while socialism just means we voters direct our representatives to provide the services we as a society all depend on for survival and to promote the general welfare...the commons...education, health care, SS, safe environment, food and drugs etc. It is easily demonstrated that our most productive years were when the top tax rate was over 70%. When the top tax rate was dropped to in the 20% tile rate income inequality began to explode...another issue Bernie championed. The candidates are all Bernie-like now as he really did speak for what we as democrats say we want. Now we have so many good candidates to represent us.
