Today is the 43rd anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King in Memphis.
If the racist tea-baggers and conservatives attacking "big government" think Barack Obama is a "socialist," what would they call Dr. Martin Luther King today? Well they called him worse things back then...
Too bad liberal politicians today still lack the courage and "progressive" vision of MLK, who spoke truth to power even when it cost him popularity--and his life.
If people really want to know what a Democratic Socialism is about they should listen to MLK on economic justice, war, inequality, etc...
