Below is an excerpt of my debut piece at The Resurgent:
Americans who are most receptive to socialism are those who have yet to experience it firsthand. Such is the case with socialist U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and many Democrats today.
The Democrat presidential candidate isn’t shy about his support for wealth redistribution or a 90 percent income tax rate to make society more “equitable.” In fact, his affinity for collectivist policies only grew after honeymooning in the so-called workers paradise, the now-defunct Soviet Union.
Why does a washed-out Bolshevik septuagenarian have widespread appeal among young leftists? Like his comrades in academia and the media, Sanders has cast a magical socialist spell on Millennials with “cool” promises of free college tuition, cradle-to-grave dependency, student loan forgiveness, and unicorns-for-all.
Heaven forbid someone who lived behind the Iron Curtain and later fled it educate Comrade Sanders and his supporters about the grim realities of big government policies!
Thankfully, one outspoken survivor of Soviet communism – Garry Kasparov- is bold enough to challenge Sanders’ rallying cry for socialism in America.
