    Because that is the way most socialist/communist countries start. They promise free stuff and equality to all workers. Then when everyone is dependent on them for everything, they become totalitarian dictators that rip up their constitutions.

    Bernie has been praising communists his whole life. He even campaigned for the Marxist Socialist Workers Party in the 1980s. They are communists, if you are wondering.

    Fake news. Sanders was never a leader or a member of, and never supported the SWP. Just because he supports certain social policies adopted by socialist regimes doesn't mean he supports the authoritarian regimes that put them in place. Democratic socialism is exactly what it says, it's democratic, not authoritarian. If you want to know how authoritarian socialist/communist countries actually start, pay close attention to what Putin did and what Trump is doing.

    It's not fake news JimL just because it isn't what you want to hear.

    More evidence he is a commie [although I know you won't bother to read it]:


    Bernie Sanders in 1972: 'I don't mind people calling me a communist'
    by Joseph Simonson
    | February 04, 2020 02:08 PM

    President Trump's recent jab at Bernie Sanders, calling him "a communist," was meant as an insult. But the 2020 Democratic front-runner and Vermont senator might not have taken it that way.

    In 1972, Sanders, then a gubernatorial protest candidate for the socialist Liberty Union Party, visited an alternative high school in Rutland, Vermont, to give his campaign pitch. During a question-and-answer session, Sanders, then 31, brushed off accusations of being a left-wing radical.

    "I don't mind people coming up and calling me a communist," Sanders said.

    https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/n...me-a-communist


    and...


    While attending the University of Chicago, Sanders joined the Young People’s Socialist League, the youth wing of the Socialist Party USA. He also organized for a communist front, the United Packinghouse Workers Union, which at the time was under investigation by the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

    After graduating with a political science degree, Sanders moved to Vermont, where he headed the American People’s History Society, an organ for Marxist propaganda. There, he produced a glowing documentary on the life of socialist revolutionary Eugene Debs, who was jailed for espionage during the Red Scare and hailed by the Bolsheviks as “America’s greatest Marxist.”

    In a 1918 speech in Canton, Ohio, Debs reaffirmed his solidarity with Lenin and Trotsky, despite clear evidence of their violent plunder and treachery.

    Sanders still hangs a portrait of Debs on the wall in his Senate office.

    Sanders took several “goodwill” trips not only to the USSR, but also to Cuba and Nicaragua, where the Soviets were trying to expand their influence in our hemisphere.

    In 1985, he traveled to Managua to celebrate the rise to power of the Marxist-Leninist Sandinista government. He called it a “heroic revolution.” Undermining anti-communist US policy, Sanders denounced the Reagan administration’s backing of the Contra rebels in a letter to the Sandinistas.

    Sanders also adopted a Soviet sister city outside Moscow and honeymooned with his second wife in the USSR. He put up a Soviet flag in his office, shocking even the Birkenstock-wearing local liberals.

    Bernie can't hide from his past, Jimmy. And you can't just close your eyes and ears and go, "nah nah nah fake news nah nah"

    My state has an open Super Tuesday primary. Biden/Sanders are neck and neck in first based on most recent polling. I think it would be worth my while to request a Democratic ballot and vote Biden.

    I've fact-checked this one before. The context was that he didn't care if people wrongly called him a communist so long as they took some sort of interest in politics. He wasn't admitting to being a communist.
