Re: “Video: Sanders Imitates Monster, Impersonates George Steinbrenner

I would like to ask you what planet you're living on, because Sanders has said throughout his career that he is a *democratic* socialist, a proponent of the kind of political and economic system that has thrived in the Scandinavian countries for decades, giving their people among the strongest middle classes and broadest opportunities in the world.

And of course since this comment was posted he's pointed this out yet again, as well as that it's also an American idealistic tradition, embraced by national figures from Franklin Roosevelt to Martin Luther King Jr.

Far from being misguided, Sanders is attempting to return the Democratic Party to its former New Deal support for the average citizen, away from the corporatism of neoliberals like the Clintons.
