Bernie: Here’s How We’ll Pay For Socialist Government


 

One thing is for sure: This year is going to be an interesting year and perhaps the most important election in modern history. On the one hand we have President Trump and his America First policies. On the other, we have an old communist guy, another old guy who doesn’t know where he’s at or what seat he’s running for, and another small group of students raising their hands.

Perhaps the scariest one is the old communist guy. He seems to have the most grassroots support (although that’s probably not a tough notch to get among his flailing competition). Outside of something almost magical, a la 2016, he appears to have the nomination within his grasp.

The reason it should scare many Americans is that Bernie is a devout socialist and socialism is communism-lite. It doesn’t work for the people- it only works for the government elites. Bernie has praised China and Castro, repeatedly. He doubled down on it at the debates on Tuesday night.

The guy who honeymooned in the old Soviet Union is now calling for those same kind of policies, that led to the USSR collapse, to be enacted right here in the USA.

Story continues below:

 

 

Ignoring the fact that socialism doesn't work anywhere that includes personal liberty lies the question of how it would be funded, here in the USA. Bernie has long not been able to answer that question, until now.

On Monday night he released his "plan" to pay for his socialist dreams.

From Fox News:

"Bernie Sanders reveals his new government programs to be funded by new taxes, massive lawsuits, military cuts"

Surprise! You will pay for it all! Your taxes will skyrocket, meaning you will take home far less than you do today with the same job. After all, you didn't make that money - the government deserves that wage for your work.

Next, he'll sue the living daylights out of private companies he doesn't like. So, unlike a free market, he'll completely choose which companies get to stay in business and which ones don't. He specifically called out the fossil fuel industry.

The next big cuts will come from the military that President Trump has just rebuilt. Given what we've seen around the world with China, Russia, and Iran aggression that doesn't seem like a wise thing to do. He's not talking about cutting waste. He's talking about shrinking the military that defends our nation.

Bernie is basically doubling down on some of Obama's worst failed policies. That's just the dessert, though. His main course is doubling down on the failed policies of socialism around the world and throughout history.

If Bernie prevails in November perhaps you, too, could be seeking a honeymoon in Russia or China. They may look like nice places to be after Bernie gets done with the USA.

    1. And by “examined” we mean smashing it open with a baseball bat… ’cause, plainly, there isn’t a brain in there, and I at least am kinda curious as to what IS in that space betwixt their ears…

    2. The thing everyone needs to remember is whatever laws these Democrats propose; they will make sure none of it applies to them. Recall the Affordable Care Act..ie Obamacare, that waste of time and money….Pelosi and the rest of her ilk Championed that as the best thing Obama ever came up with..something we just ALL needed to have…Health Insurance for everybody , cheap and affordable….”you can keep your Doctor”..it was a sack of lies…and the VERY FIRST THING THE DEMOCRATS DID WAS EXEMPT THEMSELVES FROM IT….It’s good enough for you but not for them. DO NOT BELIEVE A WORD THAT COMES OUT OF THEIR MOUTHS.
      Ban firearms…sure…they have secret service protection and body guards., that we pay for…fine for them..you and I are just SOL.

    3. Just heard Al Sharpton complaining that people are calling Bernie a communist. He claims that people used to call Dr ML King a communist. What?! MLK was a REPUBLICAN!

    4. you have that right anyone who knows history or been in war zones knows this bs needs to be put down now

    5. Amen Rick. These delusional young people, and I guess some old ones too, think this would be wonderful, free everything. These only have to look at Socialist countries, like Venezuela, but they always think it will be different. Bernie, on the other hand, hasn’t lived that life himself. He has 3 homes so what would he know about it? He hasn’t worked a real job. This is a very selfish man who sees himself as King and savior, but he will
      only destroy what we have left. If President Trump doesn’t win, God help us. I personally will leave, for where I do not know, but I can’t stay and watch my country destroyed, not after my grandfather and father fought for our country and our Republic. Let’s pray there aren’t that many stupid people voting!!!!

  1. Socialism just does not work for the average person, perhaps those in the ruling class…..but overall it proves to be a failure for at some point they will run out of YOUR MONEY and the MASSES will rise up to stop it, one way or another…..don’t care how much Ole Bernie tries to “sugar coat” it, SOCIALISM will never TRUMP CAPITALISM!

  2. AS CRUEL AND INHUMAN AS IT MIGHT SOUND, SEN. BERNARD’FEEL THE BERN’SANDERS(DEMOCRAT-VERMONT), HAS GONE TOTALLY OFF THE RADAR SCREEN, OFF THE RESERVATION, AND IS HEADED OUT OF THE SOLAR SYSTEM. THAT CRUSTY, SOCIO-COMMUNIST, HEAD IN THE TROUGH HACK IS BAT-SHEIT CRAZY, AND NEEDS TO GO TO SLEEP, FOREVER!

  3. communist, pure and simple. the problem is that all these obviously brain dead children, and adults who think this is a good idea, and fully support this assclown, don’t realize how bad it will be until it actually happens. Who cares about free collage when there are no jobs to be had and the ones that are left will pay so little you won’t be able to have a decent standard of living but I bet Bernie will have a great standard of living. I bet bernie won’t give up any of his wealth, any of his houses, give up traveling on private jets, no, bernie will be just fine. It boggles my mind how anyone can vote for some one that hates and spews nothing but negative crap about how bad the United States is, how bad capitalism is yet he has used this country, its capitalism, its taxpayer paid wages to get to be a multi millionaire. Are any of you Awake????? doesn’t look like it from what I see. I guarantee you this, You will reap what you sow and the first thing I’m going to ask when I start hearing things like , This government is so corrupt and I aint got any money and I can barely live, then I’m gonna ask Who did you vote for?????? Wake Up America, This is the land of the Free. Not the land of China, Russia, Cuba, and so on. The tried that shit, it didn’t work and this Idiot bernie is only out for himself.

  4. Paying more taxes? How is that free? I guest your best bet is to be a loser and stick out your hands for more free stuff!

  5. Dems are fools, who have screwed those voting for them for years, so who are the biggest fools in this pond?

  6. I hope people will wake up by the time fall rolls around and come to their senses, or our country will be in a heap of trouble.Elton

  7. In case you haven’t noticed, any time a serious cost question he never answers it.
    Bernie uses a Communist dialectic side step and throws one of his well rehearsed rants, the same rant with little change and has no connection with paying for anything.
    Actually, he has a standard response rant for any question he does not want or know how to answer.
    You see, I listened to Communist dialectic rants in Cuba and was educated by old time Communists, now Converted Capitalists on how they were actually trained in dialectic argumentation.

  8. A lot of these kids (Bernie Bros) think that they are trading their helicopter parents for a nanny-state government… who will continue to make their lives SO easy. Life has a harsh way to correct these errors in thinking. I just don’t want Bernie to punish me while he’s showing them his true colors.

  9. Just think of this; Every politician, Dems, Repubs , and Ind. will exclude themselves from the take away programs Bernie is planning. Just look at Obumma Care ! You think Obumma will give up every penny over $ 29,000. How ’bout Bloomberg? Not a chance. Even Burnie would not stand for his own policies and give all his millions to the “poor !”. Wake up America !

  10. Too many people have never read ‘Animal Farm’, and if they read it today, even the Cliff Notes version, they should come away with the understanding that ‘they’ will not be one of the pigs, and if they are lucky, they won’t be the horse.

  11. Don’t these people who are backing Bernie or any of these democrats realize what they are doing to themselves and the rest of our great country? Obviously not…they are hung up on one thing and that is defeating Donal dTrump. In other words, they would rather bite off their nose to spite their face! STUPID! God forbid that bernie should win……our country as we know it today would be gone !

  12. Buggy Bernie is a menace. He needs to be stopped. Maybe we could send him to Miami. Who is primarily in habited by Cubans Escape Castro’s Cuba. They’ll take care of him nice and quick and quiet.

  13. Can’t figure out if we are talking about Josef Sanders, Bernie Stalin, Karl Sanders or Bernie Marx. It doesn’t matter because the concept of Socialism will never work! Why? Because Man will only work for his own interest. The concept of working to take care of someone’s else family while letting yours starve does not work. It failed in Nazi Germany (National Zocialism), the Soviet Union and it’s associated republics, Communist China, North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela etc. A Socialist win will only ensure another Civil War some time in the future. Furthermore, if the socialists do win and eliminate our military, a Civil War may not occur because we will be invaded by any of a number of countries that absolutely envy and hate us.

    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips,
    this blog could certainly be one of the best in its field.
