Currently, there is a lot of back and forth going on in social media about whether Bernie Sanders is a Communist. He has said numerous times that he is a Democratic Socialist. He says that this means he is not a Socialist “like Venezuela” but more like the Nordic countries which have extensive social welfare programs built into their otherwise Capitalist systems.
Bernie’s platform includes a lot of plans for Socialist style (or at least Social Democrat) programs. This makes Conservatives wary of higher taxes and, without a specific definition of what a Democratic Socialist is, quick to use the (inaccurate) Communist label. Even the mainstream Democrats seem to be floundering when trying to pin a definition on Democratic Socialism.
I thought that the easy way to solve this is simply to make people aware of what the accepted definition of a Democratic Socialist is. I created this shirt for that reason. Once I had the design finished I realized that it could be worn just as easily by both Bernie Sanders supporters or the Trump2020 crowd. In both cases, it is an accurate representation of what Bernie represents and his vision for America.
This t-shirt makes for a great staple piece in any wardrobe! It has a classic fit with thick cotton fabric.
