An interesting premise.
Oh, PLEASE be aware that the final paragraph above (about electing Bernie) is entirely sarcastic. This fundamental conservative (not whatever that term means these days!) would never suggest anything or anyone that ever identified with socialism or communism – unless they had resoundingly renounced it (like Dr. Thomas Sowell has done with his very early Marxism of 50-60 years ago). That paragraph was meant to be read as a sarcastic “give up” idea – as in, “Well gee! Why don’t we just get the far lefties of the world all working together, and we can all avoid “the BIG one.” No, I go back to the days of, “Better dead than red” (any brand of communist/Marxist). And I subscribe to that today.
