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 !

Update 2:

No Rick not just liberals there are college kids who could vote republican and are for his voice

Update 3:

How about patriotism as a safe word

Update 4:

Is Democracy as a safe word anymore

Update 5:

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.

    Since socialist principals have always been part of the US government at one level or another, one would hope. A couple examples of socialism at work:

    Police department

    Fire department

    Public utilities (water, sewer, garbage etc)

    Public libraries

    Postal service


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

    Socialism is not communism. Two very different concepts.

    Not necessarily safe, it still has a bunch of baggage that usually goes with it. But it does look like it is safer.

    Yes, he has made the word acceptably safe to say but not out of the ideology realm of rejection.

    He is starting to, because, when applied in the right way, it truly isn't a bad thing.
