Along the same lines as @VadimUzdensky1, what is so “left” or radical about Elizabeth Warren?
What is so extreme about championing goals that most Americans want and that work successfully everywhere else in the modern industrial world?
• Universal access to no-fee public health care
• Tuition-free public education expanded from K-12 to include up to bachelor’s
• Being able to go out in public without fear of being shot by an assault weapon
• An economic system that works for workers and consumers, not just the wealthy and well-connected, who need to start paying their fair share
Instead of socialism, Warren calls for markets, but markets “with rules.” Conservatives complain that rules stifle markets, but the opposite is true. Rules are what make things work. Rules of the road do not inhibit driving, they make it possible. Rules of sports don’t inhibit competitive contests, they make them possible. Warren wants economic “cops on the beat” to make our economy and financial institutions work better for everyone; not one that is rigged in favor of only the wealthy and well-connected.
