implementing more regulations and leaving just a few to figure out how to pick the winners. Government of the people or communism?

Well, that’s a misrepresentation of facts.

Or in the least, a straw man argument.

The coastal states are already locked into this model.

Our large urban centers would find it difficult to function without central government control and this requires high taxes. Warren merely represents the prevailing perspective in her region of the country. As long as these regions can retain major profitable corporations within their boundaries they will manage to survive. To do so
In the long rum, however, they will need to control the national economy as well... so that their successful producers do not flee to friendlier venues. It is doubtful, however, that Warren will find much support off the east coast. Most of the country off the coasts finds central government control an anathema. To win therefore, the Dems need to find a candidate from the same regions that produced their last four presidents, ie., the South or the Midwest.

Mayor Pete is kind of an ideal candidate from that perspective.

Not that anyone meeting your suggested criteria could raise the funds necessary and win a democratic Presidential primary though.

By the way, African Americans and Latinos are far more homophonic than the privileged race.

Calling out minorities for their use of sound-alike words is beyond the pale...

She is a joke and would be wise to end her candidacy. Doubt she will...
