Socialism Explained Using Bernie Sanders And SEC Football




We don’t ordinarily trade in Facebook memes, but we were forwarded one recently which turned out to be incredibly instructive as it relates to the presidential ambitions of U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders.

Sanders, of course, is the independent socialist from Vermont who has taken the “Democratic” presidential primary by storm – giving presumed nominee Hillary Clinton a surprisingly strong run for her money.

Hell, he may even channel the 2008 campaign of another socialist and beat Clinton …

Anyway, we’ve seen lots of people try to explain to others what socialism is … and why it will never be able to sustain itself.

“The trouble with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money,” the late British prime minister Margaret Thatcher once said.

Indeed … although the same is true with the American entitlement state, welfare state and warfare state.

How, then, to put the concept into terms “First in the South” voters can easily understand?

To the Facebook meme …

For those of you keeping score at home, Alabama has won sixteen national championships – including four within the last seven years (2009, 2011, 2012 and 2015).  They’ve earned those titles, too … especially the most recent one.

South Carolina, Missouri and Mississippi State?  Yeah … they’ve combined to win zero titles.

If Sanders has his way, though …

And yes, fans of Clemson University (the University of South Carolina’s arch-rival) …. go ahead and warm up the whole “that’s the only way the Gamecocks will ever win a national championship” counter-meme.

We’re expecting it …
