Supporters of Bernie Sanders have convinced themselves that they’re not supporting a real live socialist by coming up with the ludicrous idea that he’s actually a “democratic socialist”. This doesn’t exist. There is no such thing as a democratic socialist. Bernie Sanders is simply a socialist. He always has been, and openly so, until he decided to run for president, so naturally, he had to move a little closer to the center to attract voters. Americans don’t generally like socialists that much, and for good reason. Mention the Soviet Republic, or Castro’s iron-fisted rule over Cuba, and people are sickened. The thought of people starving to death while waiting in bread lines, or for their government-approved food rationing, doesn’t generally make people happy. But then, most people aren’t Bernie Sanders. And Bernie Sanders is all about them bread lines. They’re a good thing!
