11. Most of those bandying it about don't know much about it either, its history in particular, and

don’t know the struggle going on in Europe to keep social democracy programs afloat in the face of
rising and bitter protest over taxes, how these systems are being impacted, threatened. FDR is a good association with what we should be talking about as the social net, and Canada probably the best model for single payer as the NHS is going bankrupt and being privatized.
Finally, some of America’s immigrants and their descendants are very, very wary of socialism.

This progressive dalliance could lose the election.

California under Gavin Newsom’s leadership just passed a bill to give undocumented immigrants between ages 19-26 who are low-income full healthcare benefits. We have other excellent medical
programs low cost or free. The bill to extend full benefits to all undocumented immigrants was not passed, but it was under consideration and will be again.

Last time I looked we are still not a socialist state or a social democracy.
