With the presidential primary season in
full swing, voters must decide which candidate they would like to
support for president. And for Democrats that means choosing between
former First Lady, Senator and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and
Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. Yep, despite a big loss in Arizona,
Sanders campaign is still chugging along.
Clinton has been a household name in American politics for decades,
Sanders was relatively anonymous on the national stage until he parlayed
what seemed like a gimmick run for President at first into a serious
push for the Democratic nomination.
many were initially put off by the self-described democratic socialist,
Sanders’ leftist policies have gained traction with many (predominantly
young and white) voters, and his upsets in states like Michigan have
proven that some Americans are ready to embrace socialist-type policies
like a single-payer healthcare system.
run raises many questions in an American political system that hasn’t
seen a serious candidate skew this far to the left in some time. Is
America ready for a socialist presidential candidate? And is Bernie
Sanders a socialist at all?
answer these questions, I spoke with socialist presidential candidate
Emidio “Mimi” Soltysik. Soltysik, along with his running mate Angela
Walker, represent Socialist Party USA....
