    What does "socialist or not" have to do with the stock market figures? When Socialists are in charge in France or in Spain do not stock markets still function, and have their highs and lows?

    Why not? Being a socialist means favoring more government involvement in the economy, often including more corporate welfare, more fiscal "stimulation", and looser monetary policies - all of which gives boosts to the stocks, in the short term. And Wall Street doesn't think long term, by its very nature.

    He hasn't been one in decades.

    he never was one. Bernie Sanders is the closest thing to a real socialist in the legislative or executive branches.

    Just because he calls himself by the name? How his ideology or his voting record any different from any randomly chosen guy or gal in the left wing of Democratic Party?

    Obviously you don't know Wall Street.

    Wall Street .. a Socialist ..

    Wall Street pours more money on a SOCIALIST than any candidate in American history.

    Are you sure you want to go with that?

    'CLOSEST' is the optimum word here.

    No real socialist would have voted for the ACA.

    :0) In other words, there is no limit to how far you're willing to stretch 'socialism' and 'capitalism.'

    I think I do know both Wall Street and socialists in politics quite enough. I told you why they are quite compatible. Often the same people: Jon "I simply don't know where the money is" Corzine was the ultimate Wall Street insider, then Senator, then Governor of New Jersey.

    You just answer with "Are you sure?".
