Question: do you use or support the use of public sewer systems?
Yes, and you are a socialist. 100 years ago ONLY the socialists supported public sewer systems.
Democrats did not support sewer systems, and neither did Republicans.
My family was not socialist, but they did grow up in Milwaukee, which had socialist mayors for about 50 years.
And so I always heard the term "sewer socialist," and knew it meant support for city parks and infrastructure.
I had no idea it actually meant sewers.
Now, as 100 years ago, democratic socialists symbolized by the Bernie Sanders campaign are outlining policies for the 21st century that neither the Democratic Party establishment nor the Republican Party endorse. And like 100 years ago, many of those democratic socialist ideas will become embedded in our society and embraced by almost all. It's an exciting year for the 21st century.
