Socialism, the Democrats and Bernie Sanders: Debating the 2016 Elections

The Democratic primary campaign of Bernie Sanders has ignited a new enthusiasm among many who are fed up with the status-quo of politics in the United States. Tens of thousands have joined rallies to hear Sanders decry the billionaire class and call for an end to inequality. Many on the Left have embraced the campaign. Others have argued against support for Sanders, calling instead for Leftist to organize independently of the Democratic Party.
