If Bernie Sanders were to be elected, would the United States instantaneously become a Democratic Socialist nation?

Even if he were to become Prez he's just one guy and there are 2 other branches of gov't that serve as checks and balances. Do we really need to panic and watch McCarthyism inflame the nuts in Congress again?

Nope, nor would it be a social democracy. It will remain its same old crony capitalist self.

Idk why people scalp sanders a democratic socialist. He's a socialist democrat. A very big difference. To call himself a democratic socialist, means that he supports a socialist country with a democracy...

You do realize that he is a self proclaimed "democratic socialist"

Yeah, you're right.

But whenever someone calls him a socialist, he corrects them and says "no, I'm a democratic socialist." I'm assuming, because those two terms are very similar as well as the fact that he's running as a democrat, that he means to call himself a socialist democrat.
