Far from socialism, this is democratic populism, reversing decades of government policies that take from the many to give to the wealthy few. It’s an honest, popular rebellion against the corporate plutocracy that seeks to usurp America’s democracy, promoted by Trump and Cornyn. Which side are you on?

And which side are some of our Democratic leaders on? Unfortunately, an exotic flu epidemic has broken out in Washington, D.C. Dubbed the “Canadian hot sauce flu,” it afflicts a particular group of Democratic officeholders and operatives.

Its name stems from the fact that CHS flu renders its victims weaker than Canadian hot sauce, leaving them unable to stand boldly for the workaday majority they’re supposed to represent. Instead, the afflicted — mostly old-line party leaders — are reduced to meek incrementalism, don’t-rock-the-boat corporatism and conservative appeasement when advancing policy ideas. They fear that anything stronger than a policy stew of watered-down leftovers will spook centrist and conservative voters

From Jim Hightower


They’re afraid it will spook their donors. If they didn’t before, they can see now how bringing this message in plain language to their constituents results in their constituents wanting Bernie’s platform.


Yes, better to just not go there with that kind of talk! nudge, nudge, wink, wink, know what I mean?


Hey! Don’t bring Canada into this. 😉
