    Of course not, communism doesn't exist anymore. Name me one country today with communistic principles.
    Russia? No way. China Nope, Cuba, maybe, North Korea well that's a dictatorship.
    Bernie Sanders is a Social democrat that's  something completely different.

    No. People confuse the various types of communism and socialism, but they're not the same thing. Sanders is a Democratic Socialist, not a true socialist or a communist. He's for a political democracy, but social regulation of the capitalist economy.

    That would not be his intent. His beef is with the corruption within the Democratic Party. He understands that Hilary has made an obscene amount of money through her high ticket political events, speeches and her "foundation."  He sees rampant corruption and wants to eradicate it. He is rightfully frustrated. On the other hand, he thinks he can make nearly everything free. He may not be realistic, but he does not have the heart of a communist either.
    Someone soulless could usher in communism, but not him---not intentionally anyway. However, I think Elizabeth Warren could usher in communism because she is an elitist who thinks she knows what is best for everyone else. Sanders is not an elitist.

    Uh . . . no. Bernie is a social democratic who believes in the democratic process. He has integrity, and honestly and consistently answers questions about his political views.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b0G5MtSJsYQ&t=1940s  Likening him to a communist is just establishment spin.
