Only 30 years after the Berlin Wall fell, socialism is no longer a dirty word in the US. Bernie lost, but his message still resonates with many people. As conservatives, we need to do so much better than "socialism sucks" t-shirts and calling Democrats "crazed radical leftists."
Until conservatives talk seriously about climate change, income inequality, and college affordability, young people will continue to flock to the left. Until conservatives show why freedom and capitalism are the answer, Americans will continue to forget the lessons of history.
