2 Socialist, who's ideals are directly opposite what the Constitution/BoR states, and people will applaud this.



Can't wait till the DNC punks these two dolts like the GOP has done with Rand Paul.

The DNC would love to push a Hillary victory.

However unlike Ron Paul who had little donations and fewer followers.

Sanders is a genuine problem for TPTB,

and especially the Clinton cartel!

Right. But if you Google "Democratic Socialism" or Google "What does Democratic Socialism mean to Bernie Sanders" you get a whole different potato. If you are going to claim to state facts -- at least link Sanders to the correct information.




Sanders insisted that, unlike a regular socialist, he does not want the government to run the entire economy — however, he does want significantly more government-funded programs that he believes will make life easier for the middle and working classes.

“The next time you hear me attacked as a socialist — like tomorrow — remember this: I don’t believe government should take over the grocery store down the street, or own the means of production,” he said. “But I do believe that the middle class and the working families of this country who produce the wealth of this county deserve a decent standard of living, and that their incomes should go up, not down.”

A Democratic Socialist is not a Marxist Socialist or a Communist. A Democratic Socialist is still a Capitalist, just one who seeks to restrain the self-destructive excesses of capitalism and channel government's use of our tax money into creating opportunities for everyone.

Democratic Socialists believe that both the economy and society should be run democratically to meet human needs, not simply to make profits for a greedy few.

A Democratic Socialist does not want to destroy private corporations, but does want to bring them under greater democratic ontrol. The government could us regulations and tax incentives to encourage companies to act in the public interest and outlaw destructive activities such as exporting jobs to low wage countries and polluting our environment.

Most of all, democratic socialists look to unions to make private business more accountable.

Democratic socialist is a term made up to hide from the label and the truth of socialism. There is no difference, only classic dishonest leftist marketing. Just like liberal had to be changed to progressive when Reagan ran roughshod over the liberals.

Sanders himself muddles along saying "I don't believe the government should take over the grocery store and means of production" which of course is communism. Socialism is just the soft federal ownership of all business through regulations, laws, taxes, social activists, etc. Or the soft federal ownership of hospitals and schools by making them nothing but delivery systems for federal handouts and entitlements. Or the soft federal ownership of personal property through property taxes, eminent domain, IRS liens, EPA-BLM claims, etc.

These things are SOCIALISM, and absolutely what Sanders will continue and expand from Obama, especially to fund 19 trillion worth of new freebies, and cater to the reparations / revenge crowd that Obama owns.
