Mr. Sanders has an army of supporters who would do anything he asks them to. Do they think Bernie is a socialist? Do they care either way?
Whatever Mr. Sanders means when he labels himself a socialist, his lifestyle and yes his policies have never reflected the “socialist system as it is understood and implemented… It remains baffling as to why the Vermont Senator continues to refer to himself as a socialist Democrat and has never rejected the label when so called.
And even if one were to believe Mr. Sanders is a socialist, those decades in politics are sufficient to reassure the nation the Independent Senator is able to be “a socialist privately (in the closet so to speak)” and be “a capitalist” when governing and legislating. That being the case, one can put to rest the idea that Bernie Sanders is somehow an alien who doesn’t belong in Washington or worse an individual who is trying to transform America into a socialist country.
