    Anyway, along with the fact that she is, Sanders identifies as an "Independent", but "caucuses with Democrats. So whatever.

There's that. Plus he did get ridiculous jack from Wall Street. Seems to me that either you, or he or both are the ones that talk out of both sides of their mouth and are 'confused". I have no clue what Wall Street likes, but Biden sure isn't thye common man he portrays himself to be. Doubt he'll be out there "Occupying Wall Street" anytime soon, unless its to line his pocket.
    You still haven't addressed my basic question. If Wall Street is in love with Biden, does that mean that they love his "radical Socialist agenda" or does it mean that they believe that Biden is fundamentally a centrist in spite of his pick for VP?

    Google and respected fact checkers are your friends. People who make stuff up and you happen to see on twitter, are not.

    “Respected “fact checkers” is an oxymoron. Are you actually denying that Harris didn’t support a Funding account to bail rioters out of Minneapolis jails? Rioters who never returned for their court hearings?
    Yeah, some “supporter of law enforcement” Paul.

    It’s not on me to address that question. How would I know what “Wall Street” thinks or loves? Why don’t you address that question to the Wall Street fat cats that shoveled $74 million dollars into “Common Man” Biden’s campaign. You know. The guy who portrays himself as the champion of the little guy. (But will raise the little guy’s taxes by trying to end Trump’s tax cuts and screw the little guy who wants to sell his stock by drastically raising the Cap Gains tax on said stock sale?)

    You said she supported defunding the police (see your quote above). Clearly she doesn't. So you move on to another point.

    Socialism involves govt control of industry. Joe is a huge proponent of indirect control through regulations which benefit large corps and Wall Street, squeezing competition from smaller firms. He’s the modern Socialist in that he believes in govt control thru velvet gloved Fascism.

    The Left has destroyed the definition of Fascism by equating it with Nazis, who were by their own definition National Socialists. Yes, the Nazis hated Commies but they both did not like Capitalists. Before you start, Stalin was an ally out of necessity to keep the Germans occupied in a two front war. He raged against Capitalist immediately after its conclusion.

    Keep in mind that the Red revolution was fought against the czar who was about as pro capitalist as any European govt was at the time. Most of Western Europe was still mired in Feudal Monarchies at the time (late 19th, early 20th century).

    The American left borrows much of its governing philosophies from mid 20th century Europe and not that of the American Constitutional Republic (it’s not a Democracy). Hence, many who ascribe to the American form of govt view the Left in terms of Socialism with a hint of Fascism knowing the end goal of the Left is an authoritarian mixture of mid 19th century European governance.
