Some of us like America and don't want it turned into Denmark. Specifically, the things that Sanders hates, like free markets and military power, are the exact things that allow America to lead the world.

It's an oligarchy where politicians sell themselves to the highest bidder.

Fixed that for you.

And Denmark doesn't have perfect socialism. The idea is to get as close as possible to free markets without sacrificing the advantages they provide (i.e., providing public services and breaking up monopolies).

Capitalism just allow big corporations to rule the average persons. It's getting worse all the time.

Capitalism is failing us. Nobody is suggesting converting America to complete socialism. But adopting some socialist ideas would probably help us.

People should be able to get medical treatment or go to college without tens of thousands of dollars of debt.

Because Capitalism doesn't work for you personally doesn't give you the right to discount the thousands of people that it has lifted out of poverty.
