    To call someone a "Marxist" doesn't really mean anything, because Marx is just the Ur-text from which various forms of modern socialism (including Communism) descend

    One form is Social Democracy, which represents the sort of "soft socialism" you find in various western European countries, a fusion of capitalism with good benefits for citizens.  A social democrat is more the sort of politician Elizabeth Warren is -- a capitalist who just wants better social benefits for Americans.

    Sanders is a democratic socialist, which is not the same as a social democrat.  Democratic Socialism promotes some form of centralized, governmental economic planning, though within the context of a market economy, and worker ownership/control of economic institutions. In other words, while it is not Communism, it is much less capitalistic than social democracy, though it still believes in a market economy.

    Of course he is. He is full socialist, which is first cousin to Marxist.

    Nope. It is just another name for communism.

    Krazy Bernies admiration for past Commie dictators knows no bounds.

      Prefer a dictionary to government controlled "universities". You DO know you can graduate now from Harvard and still be unable to sign your own name, sweetumz? Normal people dont require P.C. to understand common sence.

    Hmmm 

    I don’t think it is, he is trying to paint socialism in a new way to get people to vote for his cause.

       The problem with socialism is human nature takes over  and corruption takes over. People in power become over come with staying in power rather than doing what they were intended to do is help people .

       Read the book animal farm by George Orwell 

       It will explain what will happen.

       I saw the last government here in Ontario which was very socialist become corrupt . They finally got booted out 2 years ago. 

       Ontario is crippled with debt . We have the highest debt of a non sovereign state in the world .

       Taxes have been raised on everyone not just the rich 

       Bernie paints a nice picture but I have socialism up close and seen it’s problems .

       The worst I saw when I went to Cuba .

        I’ll take capitalism

      Orwell WAS a Democratic Socialist, like Sanders, and a serious critic of Stalinist Communism. He was not critiquing his own political ideology or claiming it would lead to Communism. That's not what he believed. Please get an education.
