Are you actually suggesting that 'capitalist democracy' IS democracy?

: : Sam, it sure looks like your 'trust' FOR the ENTIRE (spontaneous) working class is bound up pretty tightly with your trust for NO ONE.

: SDF: This from someone who doesn't trust the masses to choose the right candidate under the conditions of capitalist democracy.

Are you actually suggesting that 'under the conditions of capitalist democracy' a FAIR CHANCE is to be had?

Why isn't Kovel ever in the New York Times, etc., etc.?

Are you DENYING that the minority usurpation of the media doesn't prevent Kovel---or ANYONE--- a shot at the people's ears?

Are you really so naive as to think we live in a democracy?

Even if Kovel did win---would his presence in the White House have any real effect on working people's lives AT WORK---the main place democracy is ABSENT and the main place working people need it the most?

What are you saying?

That you believe in the system?
