A Socialist may be popular with some young people who like the idea of “free stuff” but truly don’t understand how it doesn’t work. The Democratic leaders fear his popularity because they know he wouldn’t have an iota of a chance in a national election. A Socialist will never be elected President in the United States.
You are oversimplifying the idea of Socialism, which is really about putting people and their needs first, not “free stuff”. People want human dignity, when they are healthy, but especially when they are ill.
Sounds wonderful except it has never worked anywhere. When you promise free stuff and win, the next guy has to promise even more free stuff to win and so it goes until you run out of free stuff. Thats where all Socialism fails.
Bernie is on a huge roll and I think it will continue.
Whatever ones personal view on Sanders, he comes across clearly, he is consistent, confident, and seems to have the compassion that is missing from the other candidates.
