What we need is a Socialist third party that would put working families first not Wall Street and big developers
Socialist? You're kidding right?

Move to Venezuela if you want to be runned by a socialist government.

White people were the ORIGINALS illegal immigrants. They came here and against the laws of Native Americans murder, pillage, and stole land.
What are you, Puerto Rican? Last I checked, Puerto Rico wasn't wild about having illegal immigrants flooding the country either. Geez, wonder why? Cannot fathom how you could believe that it's okay to have such individuals entering the country and not think about the security risks and other problems. Have never heard of *any* country that is okay with illegal immigrants just coming in.

Capitalism is a disaster for New Yorkers.

Rampant homeless crisis, crumbling infrastructure, mass police brutality, millions without healthcare and access to education. Unemployment at 25% in some neighborhoods, poverty at 50% in other neighborhoods. Gentrification forcing people into substandard housing and onto the streets, food banks with longer lines than ever and smaller shelves than ever. Socialism would solve these issues and more. It would put working families in charge.

If you like capitalism so much why don't you move Bangladesh and go work in a sweatshop

I'd say Capitalism is a disaster for POOR New Yorkers.

New York has some of the most expensive and desirable real estate in the country, a mass of the highest paid positions, and a huge number of cultural amenities.

Given a free market, that would make sense that a portion of New York would be only accessible if one is rich.

The reality, is bizarre social programs have kept the poor clinging to New York when they'd otherwise be more successful elsewhere, rise to an extent out of their poverty, or not breed.

I think your concept of economic systems is quite skewed...

sure, why yes of course. Only if by "mass police brutality" you mean "no police brutality whatsoever"

Under DeBlasio actually, the NYPD lets people do whatever they want like drink on the streets and take a leak in people's front yards
