As election day approaches, Californians are seeing Bernie Sanders giving sermons on the high-def TV mount. He sounds wonderful on the telly as he promises to deliver his children out of the bondage of work, tuition and lifes obligations; and he will eventually lead them into a land of persistent rainbows where everything is free. If his promises continue to grow, his campaign may soon force businesses to pay people to take goods from their stores.
The liberals that I know here are swooning over Bernies promises and pitches; he is their savior. His promises are like the old biblical story of the loaves and fishes. All these benefits for the Sanders voter will appear out of nowhere; they will be free and they will just keep coming. Bernie is a miracle worker!
Lets get realistic. Any voter that falls for Bernies sales pitch is either horribly ignorant or downright greedy. None of the things that Bernie is promising is free. Everything is the result of someones labor. Bernie wants to use the governments power to take from some people to give to others in return for their votes. This Sanders tactic is the worst form of campaign financing; it should draw the attention of the media.
Think about it: People are not donating anything to the politician, but the politician will steal from others with the full force of government, then redistribute the proceeds by giving benefits to the voters. It is horribly corrupt yet our media is snoozing, on purpose, I believe.
Bernie has a crafty delivery: He messages that you, the Sanders voter, are the victim of the super-rich one percent, maybe the two percent. He tells you that you deserve to get things from those horrible people and Bernie is the guy that will do it.
Once any fool starts believing they are a victim, they demand compensation. This is actually a continuing tactic of the Democrat party. But Bernie Sanders has elevated that to a presidential platform.
Sanders is not a good soul, because what he is doing is spiritually wrong. Consider the Ten Commandments. The final commandment is the one that people usually break first; they break it before they steal, lie, or cheat. That commandment is: Thou Shall Not Covet. Coveting leads to all those sins, including war and murder.
The entire platform of the democrat party, and Bernie Sanders platform, is based on coveting. Sanders outright admits that hes going to steal from others by using the force of government. And while he performs this swindle, he will gain riches beyond anybody except the one percenters that he has targeted.
But the liberals dont care. No matter how unethical their politician, hes their politician. The other side is unethical as well, but they dont give us stuff. So they stick with a liberal, no matter how bad they are.
Our nation is falling for these professional redistributors for two reasons. First, greed. Giving the public full influence over the finances of a nation is a danger that has been communicated to us since the days of Plato. Thats over 2300 years for those of you who dont read these lessons; which brings us to the second reason, the lack of education.
The old citizens, especially from the late 1700s, spent their time studying and preparing for the upcoming spring. The book of its day, Thomas Paines Common Sense, was widely read by the common citizen. If you read just the first few pages, you will realize that todays high school student wouldnt be able to understand it. The cognoscente of early America were able to read history in several languages, most often Greek and Latin. The knowledge they worked for led them to understand the dangers of an overreaching government.
But todays Joe has decided to spend his long winter hours being entertained. Movies, video games, talent contests and survivor series are the important matters in todays home. No study leads to no knowledge, so the Bernie voter doesnt understand nor care about the dangers of an overactive government; they embrace it.
Debating these people is near useless; knowledge and common sense mean nothing to them. Their opinions are formed by emotion and protected by emotion. To solidify their party membership, their cult tells them that they are smarter than conservatives, which they take to heart.
Heres a good example: I have a veteran friend that I respect greatly, despite his being a Bernie Sanders supporter. Now get this, he also claims to be a follower of the Constitution! Zounds! There is no greater philosophical divide than between the politics of Bernie Sanders and the Constitutions order. The Valles Marineris is dwarfed by that chasm. Yet my friend claims that I am the one with the closed mind. It is in this example that we see the lack of education, and the conceit of being a liberal, in its full bloom.
Our current president has doubled our national debt in the last 7.5 years. We now have the greatest debt in the history of the world. But the Bernie supporters are unfazed by this problem; they want to bring on a tsunami of new debt. Hey, if its from Bernie, Its free!
Bernie is not a god, nor the son of one. Hes a con man who wants to use government to take from others to pay for your votes. The Sanders fans need to address the horrible costs that will land with Bernie calling the shots from the White House. It isnt free. Nothing is.
We haven’t had our primary yet but as it gets closer I am running into people who are going to vote for Bernie as a protest against Hillary.
I still can’t believe the “quality” of our candidates. Bizarre.
Bernie’s message: Everyone in the wagon. Don’t be one of the few suckers left pushing it.
Take the Son of God. And the points.
The only thing in common is that they have both been Jewish carpenters.
Back in the early '70's I worked at a service station in downtown Chicago. My boss was forever talking about buying very inexpensive merchandise "that fell off the back of a truck". Being a bit naive, it took a while for me to figure out that it was stolen goods he was talking about.
Bernie is selling "merchandise that fell off the back of a truck", and most of his customers are willfully feigning ignorance of that fact and they ARE "downright greedy".
It would be funny if it were not so serious. I see the Progressives and they claim they are against greed and hate, and yet they are consumed by and motivated by greed and hate.
Liberal logic: “Greed” is keeping what you earned and not giving it to someone who did not earn it. “Greed” evidently is not demanding what you did not earn and taking it. “Tolerance” is censoring and intimidating everyone who does not think like you think. You are not a “hater” if you claim to be violently offended by just about everyone who is not like you. You are a “hater” if you just want to mind your own business and be left alone.
I wonder if any of either’s work survives?
You’re right. Liberals great care is to have somebody else foot the bill; that’s why they have government doing so many things and why they are burdening the children with the bill.
