I realize Bernie Sanders (and other socialists) loves to mislead people, his followers are trying to pass on his lies. I think three have attempted to comment so far.
Sweden and other countries in the area are not socialist, they are capitalist countries with a lot of wealth they decided to redistribute. They also realized this was bad public policy and are now trying to reverse the trend.

The Swedish Economy
The glory days for Sweden economically took place prior to the 1960s, when they had a free economy, low regulation and lots of wealth. Between 1870 and 1950, Sweden had the highest per capita income growth in the world and became one of the richest countries, behind only Switzerland, the U.S., and Denmark.
In the 1960s, Sweden started to redistribute wealth, which brought wealth creation to a halt. By the mid-1990s, the country had growing economic problems because it continued to redistribute wealth it wasn’t creating. It was at this juncture that many of the wealthy (ABBA band members included) and entrepreneurs were leaving Sweden. In 1994, Sweden began implementing the following measures designed to reverse this trend:
- Reduce Regulation
- Reduce Government Spending
- Reform their Welfare Programs
- Shrink their Government
The countries Bernie loves to claim are socialist are not because they do not own the means of production – see Venezuela and Cuba for that one.
Suckers who think Bernie has any chance of being the next president should be doing their own research. You should also know Bernie owns three houses and has never held anything but a government job.
I thought old white men weren’t allowed to run as Democrats anymore?
Try google, there are plenty more sources of similar information.
Meanwhile, uniformed comments will be deleted.
