Dumb to talk about ‘Defund the Police’ and socialism

To the editor:

Research is showing that the “Defund the Police” movement was like a 10 year-old child’s temper tantrum that lost Democrats a lot of votes that could have resulted in a Biden landslide, a gain of seats in the House and a takeover of the Senate.

This could have resulted in the passage of the new social programs that these “lefties” want.

This was perhaps the dumbest move by these lefties in the last 40 years.

Almost as stupid was some of these lefties calling themselves “socialists.” That was another kiss of death that was made more foolish by the fact that none of them are truly socialists at all. They are actually “social democrats.”

Please read the online article titled “Bernie Sanders Isn’t a Socialist” by Paul Krugman, which appeared in The New York Times. Krugman won the 2008 Nobel Prize in/for economics. I believe that it is fair and safe to say that someone who won the Nobel Prize in/for economics actually knows what a socialist does and does not believe in (even though I know that conservatives and Republicans love to criticize and bash Krugman). There are many other articles that say what Krugman does. I have had three such articles, and I would be glad to send paper copies of them to anyone.
