ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The 1936 Soviet Constitution appears to be the underlying foundation of the political theory, thought and action of presidential hopefuls Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and the rest of the leftist-candidate coterie.

Article 120 of the Soviet Constitution says that social insurance and free medical service will be provided, at the state’s expense, for the people, through a network of health resorts. Article 121 asserts that the right to universal, free education is assured for students of universities and colleges.

Both articles precisely conform with what Mr. Sanders and Ms. Warren, et al, promise for this nation’s future should they become president. As the old saying goes: If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it’s a duck. Since Sanders and Warren, along with their leftist confederates, currently “quack” along the exact lines of the 1936 Soviet Constitution, their communist leanings are now fully exposed for all America to see.

The problem is that, sadly, millions of Americans favor the Sanders/Warren brand of political ideology over capitalism, a system which has made the United States the greatest and most powerful nation in history. Hopefully by 2020 the same Americans who now lean toward the Democratic Socialist paradigm, with its supposedly free health care and higher education, will have come to their senses.
