by Jeff Thomas, International Man:
Recently, many political hopefuls on the Left in the US have “come out” as socialists. Some may have been socialists all along, whilst others may merely be hoping to cash in on the popularity of avowed socialist Bernie Sanders in 2016.
Whatever the answer, those on the Right have gone into attack mode, fervently stating, “The US will never be a socialist country!”
This will unquestionably become the primary emotionally based issue until the 2020 election.
