Can someone educate me on Bernie Sanders? He seems interesting and someone else I may possibly vote for.
Hitler was a fascist that called himself a socialist.
@Muttl200 Bernie was deemed one of the 20 best mayors. He's currently in the Senate though. He stands for working families. He only accepts donations from trade unions and individuals (the maximum amount per person is I think $150). He's surging in the polls and is beating Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire.
@Pericles You can be both Fascist and Socialist at the same time. Fascism is a political system and Socialism is an economic system.
