He’s so old that he’s trying to continue FDR’s plan. It’s 2019 not 1933, you need a new system

Burnie is the only one that will take down special interest groups that now control congress.! .. people should listen to him he is the resl deal... democratic socialism is the same sytem we have now but instead of giving the 1% welfare it is given to people who need it

The problem is that it is the poor who receive all this welfare, not the rich. His plans for universal health care will drive our country into massive debt. Not even the 1% can pay for that because of our progressive tax system, they already pay huge amounts of our tax revenue. It’s a great idea to help everyone (I’m somewhat of a populist myself) but his plan is not possible.

actually the tax system is only progressive unil middle class wages...if you ever reach upper class the taxes you pay regress in comparison to your income.... and universal healthcare will only be possible if people will stand up to and eliminate the rich and super powerful insurance companies who have convinced the masses that everything will fall to pieces without paying them billions in premiums

Just a thought. If it was never real Socialism when it inevitably failed. Would Democratic Socialism by definition not be real Socialism?

He's correct in the most tragic way possible. Inevitably democracy leads to demagogues promising the most bread and the biggest circus. Whenever you hear "free" you'll see millions nodding in agreement.

Socialism would be swell... if it actually worked and was sustainable.

Anyone dumb enough to want to run that kind of system isn't smart enough to do so.

Bernie, Bernie, Bernie. Not only is Democratic Socialism a contradiction in terms but it just sounds BORING, you need something with a bit more zip to it like I dunnnno... Semi-Automatic Bolshevism? Or how about Schismatic Stalinism? This might sound a little ageist but in your case Rheumatic Absolutism might fit quite nicely? ☭✌️👴✌️☭

You mean working for the government that can't seem to get anything done ever and when they do it's pure crap

Democratic socialism is the most effective way to lower working class wages in the long run. One of the most myopic ideologies known to man. People forget that Hugo Chavez was democratically elected and it took decades for the rot to manifest; it was all too predictable but the predictors were ignored. You should also not forget that Bernie Sanders himself was once a cheerleader for the Venezuelan experiment, right up until it became impossible to ignore the famine and crimes against humanity. Because at that point it magically becomes "not real socialism" according to scumbag apologists.

like all his proponents, he doesn't know what socialism is. what he alludes to (and points to as an example) is social democracy like in scandinavia; a capitalist system that has a large govt, high taxes, and a lot of social services. OR, he does know what it is, understands that his proponents don't, and is taking advantage of their ignorance to claim a mandate to implement socialism (though I find it difficult to believe that could ever come to pass in the US)
