Re: Maybe the market drop is related to fears of Sanders being president
Left wing? Try "hardcore communist." Bolshevik Bernie has praised Cuba, Venezuela, and the USSR.
Bernie pointing out that not everything done by communist regimes was bad is a naive political error. Most Americans do not want to hear that the literacy and health of Cuban citizens dramatically improved under the regime's policies. Americans assume Bernie supports the dictatorial nature of countries like Cuba and the USSR. That is absolutely not the case. Bernie supports a democratic nation moving towards greater provision of public services to the disadvantaged in society (more akin to the model in countries like Denmark and Sweden). You can certainly disagree with Bernie's views, but he is not some kind of nascent Stalin figure.
