Vermont’s Socialist Senator is Running for President

That’s it, folks. It’s official. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is running for President and he plans on winning.

The “Independent” Bernie Sanders (who caucuses almost exclusively with the Democrat Party) has announced that he will be running for President in 2016 as a Democrat candidate for the Party’s nomination. So I guess that means he’s not so independent then?

If you don’t think he can win because he’s anti-big money and a socialist… don’t sell him short.

“People should not underestimate me. I’ve run outside of the two-party system, defeating Democrats and Republicans, taking on big-money candidates and, you know, I think the message that has resonated in Vermont is a message that can resonate all over this country,” Sanders said.

But will donors send him any cash? He seems to think they will.

Are you ready for an “out of the closet” socialist President? I’m not, but I don’t think we really have to worry about Sanders winning. He is an honest to goodness European socialist and he doesn’t pretend he’s something different. Which is kind of refreshing from a politician… even if his political ideas would be disastrous. Hillary Clinton will make short work of Sanders, so don’t expect him to get too much publicity in the coming months.
