  1. People who say he's a communist must still be living in the 1950s. When the nation was controlled by having people surrender their freedoms and turn on their neighbor for fear of being conquered by the Soviets. The Soviets who in 1950 had maybe 5 nuclear weapons compared to our 300+. In order to control a people, you have to control their minds. To control their minds you have to get them to believe something. That something was the Soviets were a threat, even thought they had ZERO desire to do anything to the U.S. for fear of them becoming Nagasaki II. You have to keep people scared because human nature says when people are scared they think less and seek protection from those who say they can provide it. Problem-Reaction-Solution.
    Socialism – a political and economic theory of social organization which advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole.

    Socialism is also characterized as a system in which limitations or outright banning of the monetization and profiting from certain goods, resources and/or services are implemented.

    It's not redistribution of wealth, that's capitalism. it's not communism where the government owns everything.The United States was a socialist nation in the early 1900s. That is until the tycoons of industry (Rockefellers, Morgans, Rothschilds), with the help of people like Edward Bernays, redefined the term of socialism. Socialism in it's purest form only effects those who wish to profit off of industries like medical and education. Things that are needs and not wants. It would prevent refusing needed medical treatment due to lack of money because the hospitals would be own by the people. It prevents the financial tycoons from charging 600+ dollars for an EpiPen injector that used to cost 80-100

    "Rapists deserve the same vote as their victims, and murderers deserve the vote that their victims will never have the opportunity to use. EqUaLiTy!" – Bernie Sanders 2020

  5. FDR's policies and programs were so popular with Americans he was elected for 4 Terms ! So popular that the Republican party had to enact our current term limits. And those programs, still in effect today, have helped millions of Americans young and old for over 75 years
