    How would we mindlessly vote for labels without political parties?

    Instead of Democrat or Republican, perhaps we could refer to them as 'our fellow American'!

    That would require people to think for themselves; we can't have that.

This is where in the Republican party will find the most conservative and far right wing elements of the Republican Party. These are the people that mainly vote in primary elections, these are the overwhelming majority that vote in primaries. Its not "moderates" or "centrists", its usually the most ideological elements of the parties. That is why during Primary season you see that their rhetoric and message is more progressive/liberal leaning for Dems, and more conservative/tea party-esque leaning for the Republicans. Then during the general election what do you see, the candidates appealing more to the center, more moderate. If anything Bernie running is going to push Hillary more left, and more of a liberal populist message.
    My bad I meant to the left.

    Capitalism is bad....unless it helps you gain power. Then it's swell.

    Donating to the poor is a necessary tenet for the left....except when they need the money for their own advancement.

    The irony of this thread is off the charts.

    The sellout could just save a lot of money by not running in the primaries. He could just skip to the general and not have to join a party of which is he is not part. I'm not clear that he has even joined the Democrat party, so why should they support him?

    As a social worker working with a lot of people even further to the left than I was at the time I got the distinct impression that they embraced big government because in their mind it excused them from having to be charitable.

    Being of socialist mind that not mean one does not have the ability or inclination to amass wealth.
