Sanders and the rest seems to think if we do it by vote, that makes it better.
Anyone who has grandparents from Russia, China, Vietnam, Cuba, or any of the Eastern European socialists places should know full well how awful socialism is. It's the reason they are here.

Ideally - millions of middle class and poor people stuck in shitty cities in California and Illinois with high crime and high taxes will tell their government and civil servants that they need to do better and to stop raising our taxes to pay for their ludicrously lavish pensions. But right now we are handcuffed with the "California Rule" that basically says even if a city goes bankrupt, they can't cut pensions. All they can do is:- Raise taxes- Reduce services- Shaft bondholdersHow come civil servants don't have any skin in the game? Why does everyone else have to suffer except government employees?The California Supreme Court is hearing a series of cases this year that will hopefully overturn the California Rule which will free up hundreds of cities to be able to negotiate with their unions and get their finances in order.
