Bernie Sanders is now the front runner in the Democratic Party's primary race. He's a socialist
who promises he would engage the military to help Taiwan if China were to attempt an invasion according to this CBS
article. That brings us to an interesting question; what about North Korea or any of the other socialist dictatorships in our world? Obviously the president doesn't have absolute power, but the Commander in Chief should hold to the values and alliances of our nation.
I am opposed to socialism in general and to Marxism in particular. If a socialist gets elected as president it doesn't mean the country will instantaneously become a socialist nation. But it does bring some questions to mind. Opinions?
You're right - We won't become a Socialist Nation the day after (if) Bernie is elected.
The media and his opponents are just blowing everything out of proportion - as usual. Something to grab headlines.
Now if (R)Trump claims he is a true Communist (or whatever pigeon-hole-ism) and thinks all corporations should be owned and run by the gov't, I would be worried because he has the whole of the Republican Party deifying and worshiping him, and they would fall in lock-step agreement as he is The Chosen One given to us by GOD. (Except for Romney)
He may have tripped over his words about Castro, but the idea
of some kind of "Socialist" healthcare and education system is appealing to him - as well as to many other evolved nations of the world.
And as has been said - If you don't like socialism, Go Buy Your Own Road! (and plenty of other state or national provisions)
