Bernie – in every occasion, at every opportunity – has always referred to himself as a socialist. When labeled as such by his enemies or his opponents, Mr. Sanders has never wavered; instead, he has always opted to explain his position on issues instead of debating semantics. After all, Mr. Sanders is “too old to be hung up on terms”. He has very little time to waste; besides, he makes no apology to anyone.
“As if that is not bad enough” many have lamented, at the dawn of the 2020 campaign season, Mr. Sanders dropped a bombshell: he would like to have former criminals’ rights to vote restored. This is not a novel idea but it is hardly a campaign slogan either.
