Bernie Sanders is the hottest presidential candidate right now….He points to Europe, particularly Scandinavia, for examples on how socialism might work in practical application: generous social programs providing a baseline standard of living for all, dispatched by a robust, activist government and funded by higher taxes on corporations and the wealthy and reduced spending in areas like, say, an unnecessary $2 trillion war in Iraq. Sanders believes that such progressive ideas have a broad popularity, not just among a lefty fringe but across the working class, even in red states.
And he says, 'Think about why the Koch brothers are going to spend $1 billion in this campaign. If they think politics are that important, you should too.'
