He doesn’t know where he is half the time, but former VP Joe Biden was probably always going to win the race, even as we watched him sink lower and lower in the polls until he was finally overtaken by Vermont’s “Democratic Socialist” Senator, Bernie Sanders.
Sanders had momentum thanks mostly to the fact that he swindled much of America’s youth into believing that socialism is a great tool to run a country with. No matter your age, paying attention to history or economics in any way is one solid way of dispelling the notion that socialism is a system that actually works. Having a job and paying taxes is enough to cure one of a desire for socialism in the absence of the first two.
