How socialist is Bernie Sanders?

How socialist is Bernie Sanders, anyway? Now that he looks to be the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination, everyone's starting to ask.

It clearly means something that he's refused to register as a Democrat (except during prez runs) for his entire adult life. That's roughly half a century as a capital-S Socialist because he thinks the government should control a lot more of the economy.

He doesn't talk today as he did in the 1970s and '80s of nationalizing most major industries. But his distrust of the market runs deep: This is, after all, the guy who thinks it's deeply wrong that you can buy so many different kinds of deodorant.

But Medicare-for-All, which means outlawing all private insurance, isn't the only "let Uncle Sam run it" policy he's pushing.

It's a ridiculous question, like asking "How Gay is Pete Buttigieg?"

It's the "is" that matters, not the "how much".



Let this sink in: The two Democrat front-runners are people who not that long ago would have been flat-out prohibited from federal employment for their aberrant beliefs/behaviors. This ain't your grandfather's Democrat party.

The difference between Crazy-as-a-Sh!thouse-Rat Sanders and Ex-mayor Gay-4-Pay is the former is looking for one last 10-figure payoff the latter is aiming for a 7-figure above-the-desk job for the next 20 years.
