The Impossibility of Socialism in America

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.
