The Impossibility of Socialism in America

The Democratic Party is showing signs of being divided, and in this episode, Dan Sullivan and Mark Young talk about why a Democratic candidate is unlikely to win the next election. Two parties: The Democratic Party might actually split into two parties, and two candidates might come out of it in the fall. Progressivism ending: One can see what’s happening now not as the beginning of socialism in the U.S., but as the end of progressivism. Only value: Nothing has any monetary value other than what is determined by the marketplace. No seats: It’s possible for a candidate to receive a large percentage of the popular vote in the U.S. without winning a single electoral seat. Unlikely elimination: It’s unlikely that the electoral college will be eliminated because that would require agreement from the very states that the electoral college protects.
