Sanders’ Case for Socialism

The Democrat primary itself.

Undemocratic Democrat “superdelegates” are giving Hillary Clinton a huge lead in the party’s presidential race, despite Bernie Sanders’ competitive performances. This was true after New Hampshire, in which Sanders clobbered Hillary 60-38 only to split the delegate count at 15 apiece. And it was repeated in Michigan, where Sanders won narrowly but will likely lose the delegate count in the same manner.

Sanders is confident he’ll win them anyway, saying, “A lot of these superdelegates were pledged to Hillary Clinton way back when, probably before I even got into the race or just shortly afterwards. … I think you’re going to see some of them rethinking their commitment to Secretary Clinton if we can show that we’re winning states around this country. We have now won … nine states and a lot more are yet to come.”

Now, some folks might think Bernie is experiencing the ill effects of socialism. After all, Hillary’s just getting some of what he won; it’s her “fair share.” But we think it actually illustrates the opposite point. Clinton is the 1%, and the system is rigged in her favor. She’s the multimillionaire who’s leaving nothing but crumbs for Sanders. So here we are, watching as the Democrat primary itself has become a pretty effective Bernie Sanders ad.
