Our ascendant movement cannot truly assume national leadership without welcoming the support of those who are not always with us. It’s not selling out. It’s called winning. -Jeff Weaver

Many are expressing concern about Hillary Clinton's endorsement of Andrew Gillum's campaign for governor of Florida — not to mention Bloomberg and DWS.

I have also heard concerns that centrists who prevail in Democratic primaries always expect progressives to actively support them in the general election but the centrists don't vigorously back prevailing progressives.

These two sentiments seem to be in direct conflict.

All of you know I have policy differences with Secretary Clinton. Bloomberg and I are not even in the same universe. And DWS? I'm pretty sure she still considers me an "ass" and "particularly scummy."

Andrew Gillum is in a historic fight in Florida after winning a hard-fought primary. As he has pointed out, people endorse his candidacy because they support his platform and not the other way around. We should be proud that we have built such a powerful movement that Secretary Clinton is now rallying behind Gillum's progressive candidacy.

So I, for one, appreciate those Democrats who are not aligned with the progressive wing of the Party who are stepping up to support Gillum.

Our ascendant movement cannot truly assume national leadership without welcoming the support of those who are not always with us. It's not selling out. It's called winning.

Forever Forward!

How do we support universal public healthcare when the NHS is so wasteful?

I have a lot of conservative friends who say state health care is generally more wasteful than private healthcare, and that the US's lack of tariffs and (European countries' taxing of exports into the US) subisizes their societies and allows them to provide these bigger social safety nets.

Here's an article about NHS waste

What is the counter argument to this? I figured this sub could point me in the direction of why this is incorrect

From this amazing article: Huntsville City Council candidate’s ties to Bernie Sanders revealed in ad — ‘Few things are scarier than socialism’

On Monday, Dr. Mary Jane Caylor’s campaign for Huntsville City Council released a creative new social media ad that invoked her opponent’s ties to socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

With Halloween on the horizon, Caylor hit her opponent, Frances Akridge, with the tagline “few things are scarier than socialism… Especially in our local government.”

Akridge, the ad says, has donated to liberal campaigns across the country, including Bernie Sanders for President, Rick Nolan for Congress (Minnesota), Katie McGinty for Senate (Pennsylvania), Nelson for Congress (Wisconsin), Zephyr Teachout for Attorney General (New York), Nanette Diaz Barragán for Congress (California), Deborah Ross for Senate (North Carolina), Chase Irons for Congress (North Dakota), Maggie Hassan for Senate (New Hampshire), Paul Clements for Congress (Texas), Morgan Carroll for Congress (Colorado), Russ Feingold for Congress (Wisconsin) and Pramila Jayapal for Congress (Washington).

While local races are normally less partisan than statewide or national races, Caylor’s campaign tied Akridge’s “ultra-left” activities to the local level, saying that Huntsville would be hurt by socialist City Council policies.

“Imagine how much of your money Frances Akridge will want to tax and spend… We cannot afford to let Frances Akridge traffic in her big-government values to our City Hall,” the social media caption reads.

It continues, “Huntsville’s bright future demands fiscal responsibility and a budget that is overseen by an experienced, conservative leader. We need the conservative, proven, and principled leadership of Dr. Mary Jane Caylor.”

…………………………

In response to Caylor’s ad, Akridge shared a Facebook post that read, “Huntsville municipal elections are SUPPOSED TO BE nonpartisan. And now we have this crap.” The post did not dispute any of the ties to socialist or liberal candidates or that Akridge would govern as a socialist on the city council.

According to Caylor’s campaign, in the October 9 Huntsville City Council District 2 election, ”the choice is clear: Socialist Frances Akridge or Conservative Mary Jane Caylor.”
