The Radical Education of Bernie Sanders ~ Time.com

A lot info in one article

.....
He also met regularly with the Young Peoples Socialist League in the student center, where students talked about nuclear disarmament, former Socialist Party Presidential candidate Eugene V. Debs, the lessons of the Russian revolution, and how to implement socialism, though his vision did not match up with the already faltering Soviet experiment. He talks today about expanding government programs like social security and Medicare, and tuition-free college. “Should the government be running the restaurant across the street?” says Sanders today. “Obviously not!”

Just info

1. There's quite a bit of info about Sanders out there that gets called "red-baiting"

 

simply by posting the actual, factual history of the man.

And to my knowledge, he has yet to be confronted with it by any tv reporter.

2. It's interesting that this article

is from 2015. There has been absolutely zilch about his past that I have seen in 2016 other than his days as a student activist at the U of Chicago.

I wonder how long this article will be allowed to stand.

3. Sanders is so "radical" and so true to his beliefs (sarcasm)

...that the story of how he decided to run for the Dem nomination for prez started at breakfast at Denny's Restaurant with his wife, Jane. You know Denny's? That place that has been sued for exploiting their workers by calling them "managers" and then exempting them from overtime pay. That place that serves up GMOs and hormone-laden meat? That typical corporate franchise?
He is such a hypocrite it makes me gag. He is a man who talks the talk, but does not walk the walk.
