The dictionary defines socialism as "a political and economic theory of social organization that advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole." In Marxist theory, socialism is "a transitional social state between the overthrow of capitalism and the realization of communism."
America has always been "the land of the free and the home of the brave." We have had a strong free market economy which has been the envy of the world and has led to the strongest economy in the history of the world.
Now one candidate — Bernie Sanders — who is a self-described socialist is pulling even with Hillary Clinton in the race for the Democratic Presidential nomination. He calls himself a socialist and advocates income taxes up to 90% of higher incomes. If Bernie wins the nomination, we are one Presidential vote away from giving the most powerful office on earth to a socialist.
Who ever would have thought this was possible?
