Has Sanders, somehow, has made “socialism” a safe word in American politics.?
Is it because he is Jewish and the old saying some are a little pink as in socialist and communist ?
Is it because he makes promises that a GOP congress will fight and he wants a fight !
No Rick not just liberals there are college kids who could vote republican and are for his voice
How about patriotism as a safe word
Is Democracy as a safe word anymore
So socialism created unionism, Police and Fire will get behind that for sure. What about those who say unions have wages and pensions that create the problems for city governments.

"Socialism is the enslavement of the people to the state." Off, my local library does not have slaves. Perhaps I missed something.
