Bernie Sanders’ campaign watches the last grains of sand trickle down like the economics he opposes. While his bid for the presidency is toast, Sanders’ “democratic socialism” could become part of the American political spectrum.
Keith Lehrer once said, “There is no exit from the circle of one’s beliefs.”
Sanders’ circle of beliefs has never changed throughout the course of this election. Even Hillary Clinton acknowledged the venerable Vermont senator and the impact of his politics during her victory speech in Brooklyn per CNN,
“Let there be no mistake: Sen. Sanders, his campaign, and the vigorous debate that we’ve had about how to raise incomes, reduce inequality, and increase upward mobility, have been very good for the Democratic Party and for America.”
Sanders welcomed millions into the circle of his beliefs despite re-introducing socialism – or “democratic socialism” as he refers to it – back into the American political lexicon. According to RealClearPolitics, 12 million people voted for him and who knows how many more were not registered, unable to vote, or silently supporting his “revolution” as he calls it.
