The turning point of a nation? Socialist state count startling

The forgotten question of this campaign season was asked by none other than Chris Matthews of Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

What is the difference between a Democrat and a Socialist?

Debbie was stumped, as were several others who were given the question.  But now, as the delegate counts begin to be tallied, we see the answer.  “Not much.”

Our country may be displaying the evidence of a turning point.  Bernie, the unabashed Socialist, has to date won the following states: Kansas, Nebraska, Vermont, Minnesota, Colorado, Oklahoma (Massachusetts and Iowa essentially ties).

What does this tell us?  Perhaps an intense dislike for Hillary Clinton, or a disdain for the insiders of Wall Street and Washington is manifesting.  Or have we come to the point where the “everyone gets a trophy” generation is now the “everyone demands a trophy” generation?

Socialism is the intellectual pursuit de jour of the left, just as “fundamental transformation” and “hope and change” (how’d that go?) were fashionable eight years ago.

One becomes smart and cutting-edge when one associates with the assumed intellect of a chic movement.  Socialism, in many circles, has become chic, and the assumed intellect is worn on the sleeve, however faux it may be.

Every time Bernie wins a state, the indication is strong that our nation is not only changing, but has changed.  The concept of “mother government” is comfortable for so many.  As Orwell noted, “the choice for mankind lies between freedom and happiness and for the great bulk of mankind, happiness is better.”

The federal government will make you happy.  The larger it gets, the happier you will be seems to be the message of the Socialist Bernie Sanders.  It is embraced to an alarming degree.
