"Tyranny" means despotism, absolute power, dictatorship, cruelty, brutality, and etc etc. Senator Sanders is a decent human being and politician. Unfortunately, his brand of liberalism is not exactly mainstream and I do not believe he will get the nomination in this lifetime. He is, however, a wakeup call, the person alerting others to future dangers and approaching problems unless change is made. Would you be so gracious as to clarify exactly what you do mean? I'm still a little foggy from a lack of sleep so bear with me. Thank you.
    Progressivism has an end goal, what is that? No progressive ever answers that.

    History does, it's one of government dictating our lives. It's one of elites dictating how we live, what cars to drive, what houses to live, what pay we "deserve".

    He resonates because of the ignorance of the masses, the same fools that let Obama in the White House, that cheer for Hillary, that back "punishing the rich" as some sort of positive move for the country.

    Yes, because he is in favor of the same things they are.

    Do you think democratic socialism and communism are the same thing?

    Perhaps you are correct. Regardless - its all water under the bridge and that was seven long years ago.

    Unfortunately, with the massive promotion of immigration, both legal, and especially illegal, the shared cultural objectives that make the Scandinavian (Nordic) Model work, have little chance in the US.

    The slippery slope of unintended consequences has a significant presence in the liberal/progressive agenda.

    Is that a "let's forget all of that and move on" statement?

    I will say, I'm very very cautiously, skeptically intrigued by Sander's candidacy.

    However, one thing I am absolutely certain of... If there is a Clinton or a Bush (and we have both) in the mix, there are high level games being played that have nothing to do with anything being sold to the public.

    Progressivism has NO place in America.

    Our Forefathers didn't make laws with progressive ideas.

    Progressivism doesn't work. just look at what little progressivism applied by Obama as done to this country so far.
