Skip to comments.A Rare Elected Voice for Socialism Pledges to Be Heard in Seattle

SEATTLE People are used to liberals running things around here. But nobody reckoned with Kshama Sawant. Ms. Sawant, a 41-year-old economics teacher and immigrant from India, took a left at liberal and then kept on going all the way to socialism.
But Kshama Sawant (pronounced SHAH-mah sah-WANT) heartily embraces the label. Ask her about almost any problem facing America today, and her answer will probably include the S word as the best and most reasonable response. Socialism is the path to real democracy, she says. Socialism protects the environment. Socialism is the best hope for young people who have seen their options crushed by the tide of low-wage, futureless jobs in the post-recession economy.

Mine is WAY different than hers.
Ask her if she has a toilet in a clean bathroom in her American house or is she missing that hole out side her home as a child in India where they ate and sh## in the same spot. Scum
If you ask me as a socialist what workers deserve, they deserve the value of what they produce.
No. That’s NOT what socialism teaches. Socialism teaches they get what they NEED. “From each according to their ability, to each according to their need”.
So she, as your socialist demagogue/ruler/deity, will TELL you what you “deserve” based upon her infallible godlike judgement. And you will LIKE it, because the all-powerful STATE will accept no criticism.
Getting what you EARN is a free market principle.
Ironically India is turning away from Nehru’s socialistic dogma towards capitalism and here is this Indian trying to impoverish United States with failed ideas of socialism.
I guess Obama was too Commie-Lite for them. Next couple of years, they’ll be shocked at the things she proposes, sort of like the Egyptians electing Hamas to high office, then being ‘startled’ at the appearance of the Muslim Brotherhood. They’ll find out. I wonder if she’s heard about all the recent violent rapes in India, the overall oppression of women there. Aren’t they Socialist in India?
Seattles newest councilmember urges Boeing workers to seize factories
Exactly right! And the workers can produce nothing if a risk taker does not invest his/her hard earned money to set up the means of production in the first place.

Fools like this don't realize that when everyone is brought down to socialist worker status the money flowing into the government for their environmental bull crap will stop. She need to go take a look at some of the socialist hell holes to get a little education.
And then people wonder why I moved to Georgia.
Popular socialists throughout recent history: Adolph Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez...
The main consistency here is that there are still enough screwed up, “make baby Jesus weep” stupid people who will actually vote for people who will eventually shove them into ovens or a concentration camp. That’s the left for you.
America is a Democratic Republic, Bitch! Go back to India with your filth! Bitch!
socialism is never a legitimate form government
Oh come on. You know they just didn’t do it right.
No socialist regime in history has ever done socialism right. If our own socialists from OWS and so on create and run it, it will be right.
Or as I say, “everyone equally poor”.
