In 1985, Bernie Sanders Praised a Communist.

At last night's democratic debate,  it was revealed that Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders,  the socialist, praised Fidel Castro and Nicaragua's Sandinista upon returning from a trip to South America in 1985. Is socialism the most viable option free world economy? I think  conservatives should view Bernie Sanders as they viewed Barack Obama. What do I mean by that? I mean, there is a strand of socialism which turns into communism and that is exactly what they claimed President Obama was doing. Conservative, specifically the radical right,   essentially let their white guilt get the better of them. They honestly believed that President Obama was out for some sort of revenge against blacks. Specifically, conservatives we're concerned that the president wanted to take from the rich and give to the poor. In other words, that he was a modern day Robin Hood which turned out to be completely false.
In fact, the president has grown the economy for all socioeconomic statuses. Therefore, there was no grand scheme of President Obama to take over the government and give the richest cash to the poor. In fact, the world that has been transferred is predominantly from the middle class, the working class to the top 1%. So when you hear conservatives claim that President Obama was somehow and giving the richest money to the poor it is absolutely false, and we should call them out on their falsehood, and their faults in the narrative. So where does that leave us? Now, we Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders running for the Democratic Presidential nomination, and his vision for America is to radically change the socioeconomic status structure wherein there is a transfer of wealth from the wealthy to the middle class and the poor.
