Bernie Sanders is a self avowed Democratic socialist.

Many people who are familiar with his record of supporting 100% tax rates on the wealthy, honeymooning in Soviet Russia, and praising Fidel Castro believe that’s just his attempt to coverup his mainstream socialist ways with a more presentable label.

Regardless of what kind of socialist Bernie is, it is causing some major problems for young Democrats who are having a really difficult time understanding what’s going on.

Pretty startling stuff.

Here is the actual definition: a theory or system of social organization that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution,of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole.

That’s Bernie no matter how you slice it.

The most troubling aspect here is clearly the fact that socialism is one of the most destructive political theories in human history and this idea that there is a “socialism light” or some kind of alternate theory that Bernie can replace America’s capitalistic society with is not only laughable, it’s dangerous.

At the very least, you would think Bernie supporters would have an answer. Some answer. Even a wrong answer.  But many of them don’t even have that.

Makes you seriously question the degree to which some of these Bernie supporters understand what they are getting behind.
