Yoav Frommer, a leftist who teaches American history in Israel, argues in the Washington Post that Bernie Sanders’ democratic socialism could become the view of the majority of the Democrat Party. Actually, some of us think it already is. Frommer says the Democrat party was built on socialism.
In the near future, it is likely we will have a President Bernie Sanders and a socialist congress. If Bernie was young, handsome, witty, couldn’t you see him winning right now? What Democrat would rail against him and his views?
Haven’t we watched the man on the street interviews where most can’t recognize a photo of the Vice President and who think New Hampshire is on Long Island?
Europe has devolved into Socialism and PC. The U.S. stands alone but we are only a little behind Europe. The entire EU model is socialism on speed with technocrats under Angela Merkel running the show.
Socialism is apparently very attractive. All those freebies, all that wealth for everyone, and all that we have to do is ask the rich to pay a little bit more. It hasn’t worked ever, anywhere in the world, but the dream continues. We mustn’t forget that those who want the freebies outnumber those of us who don’t. It’s a decided disadvantage.
