The Independent Senator from Vermont, Bernie Sanders has announced his intention to seek the Democratic Nomination for the Presidency of the United States of America. Entering a crowded field, much more crowded then he had to deal with in 2015 when he had to just deal with Hillary Clinton, who by all accounts he beat and then was cheated out of the parties nomination. Will this time be different for Bernie? Lately, President Trump has been calling for an end of talks of socialism and that there will never be socialism in the United States, Senator Sanders is a self-avowed socialist and could have just been goaded into another run for President by the current President.
President Trump was quick to comment on Bernie’s announcement saying “Bernie Sanders has already won the debate in the Democrat primary, because every candidate is embracing his brand of socialism. But the American people will reject an agenda of sky-high tax rates, government-run health care and coddling dictators like those in Venezuela. Only President Trump will keep America free, prosperous and safe.”
I do not know if America is ready for socialism, I hope not! It has worked no place it has been tried, when people say Norway or Denmark, (they are capitalist societies with a high level of care for their elderly and great medical care, however they are each coming away from those because of the burdensome taxations), just look them in the eye and tell them with a factual response, neither of those are socialist countries, but Venezuela is one.
