I have to assume that you have a very narrow concept of "socialist
ideas," but, even so, there are other socialists running.  What's the
point of having half a dozen purely socialist candidates in the field
other than for internal organizational consumption?

This is without raising the question of why you aren't supporting
McKinney, who proponents of the Reconstruction Party see as a
virtually socialist candidate.
