Dear Thom,

Perhaps you could discuss this topic on the show.

I would love to hear the discussion on the program. Republicans over decades have successfully equated the definition of socialism to communism to a vast segment of the public through right-winged media.

Democrats have been unsuccessfully forced to play defense by trying to correctly define socialism to people who don’t care to listen. These people who listen to Right Wing Media won’t entertain the thought to hear what socialism actually is. Why don’t Democrats just forget trying to define and defend Socialism and just refer to themselves as FDR Democrats.

Many of right wing listeners have an understanding of what FDR’s New Deal meant and what it would mean for them. Especially since many of their parents worked jobs created by FDR’s Public Works Administration.
