Anyone who has followed British politics has watched the British Labor Party dive head first into the pool of the Loony Left. Their new leader, Jeremy Corbyn, is an open member of the LL.
Britain’s turn to the hard left is potentially a harbinger for the Democratic Party. For the first time, a majority of Democrats now favor socialism over free market capitalism. In this environment, it should come as no surprise that socialist presidential candidate Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) can openly advocate policies that would emulate Corbyn’s open embrace of a government-run economy. The self-described democratic socialist has proposed abolishing tuition fees, enacting a “People’s Quantitative Easing” to fund green energy schemes, nationalizing public utilities, and calls the terrorists from Hezbollah and Hamas “his friends.”
It is no surprise that Sanders has gotten behind a hare-brained scheme initially proposed by Fauxahontas herself, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).
