10. I'm not sure what is meant by "go left."

We are already in favor of universal affordable health care, rational and humane immigration policy, diplomacy instead of military action whenever possible, universal education, affordable higher education, a strong social safety net, effective regulations on financial institutions and corporations to protect citizens from predatory practices and maintain a stable financial system, universal voting rights, much higher taxes on wealthy families and businesses, higher minimum wage and better working conditions, equal rights for women and all minorities, etc. etc. etc. We also choose to make change through the political system instead of armed revolution, and realize that using immoral or unethical means to win elections taints the good we hope to achieve.
