"Socialism" is the latest target for Republican politicians to demonize. I don't begrudge Republicans demonizing things --- after all, that's all that they know how to do.

But here is socialist Senator Bernie Sanders shellacking Alan Greenspan in a way that could definitely appeal to ordinary, working-class Americans, even those who might normally call themselves "conservatives".

If the economy continues to tank, look for this type of rhetoric to have greater resonance for Americans. And look for those who hitched their wagon to Greenspan's train --- namely, Republican politicians --- to reap a whirlwind of anger and resentment as Americans suffer under a collapsing economy.
