    Communist or Socialist or Democrat. Guess who said it? Answers to follow.

    1. ...a fundamental transformation of the economy, focusing on production for need not profit.

    2. If you care about building a new foundation for our country, from the bottom up, instead of returning to the same tired, worn-out theories that didn't work...then talk to your neighbors, knock on doors, and make phone calls (to) move our country forward.

    3. Tell Congress: it’s time to pass the DREAM Act. Each year about 65,000 students graduate from high school with zero prospects for the future.

    4. Fair trade is meaningless as long as the world economy is dominated by a few massive corporations.

    5. The democratic, civil, and human rights ... are constantly under attack. These attacks range from increasingly difficult procedures for union recognition and attempts to prevent full union participation in elections, to the absence of the right to strike or even unionize for many public workers. They range from undercounting minority communities in the census to making it difficult for working people to run for office because of the domination of corporate campaign financing and the high cost of advertising.

    6. ...pushing for ethics reform that would keep our elections fair and limit the influence of big corporations.

    7. ...stabilized the financial system, and by standing up to insurance companies, big banks and credit card companies established the strongest consumer protections ever.

    8. growing restrictions and surveillance of activist social movements... open denial of basic rights to immigrants; and violations of the Geneva Conventions up to and including torture of prisoners.

    9. We call for a steeply graduated income tax and a steeply graduated estate tax... We call for the restoration of the capital gains tax and luxury tax on a progressive, graduated scale.

    10. Over 45 million people are continuously without medical coverage over 70 million are without medical coverage for at least one month each year. Out-of-pocket costs are soaring even for those with coverage. Unionized workers are forced to negotiate lower wages to pay for their health benefits or face benefit reductions and increased co-pay.

    11. We call for all financial and insurance institutions to be...operated by a democratically-controlled national banking authority, which should include credit unions, mutual insurance cooperatives, and cooperative state banks. In the meantime, we call for re-regulation of the banking and insurance industries.

    12. support a program of massive federal investment in both urban and rural areas for infrastructure reconstruction and economic development.
