Okay. I'll do you that courtesy.
Thank you that is much appreciated.
Now - since Bernie never said you can't have ANY weapons, then - what else do you have to object to????
Most of his socialist platform. And before you say it, no I am not a republican.
You said that was your only criterion.
We've established that he is only talking about banning CERTAIN TYPES of "assault weapons."
There is no such thing as an assault weapon. That is a political term to demonize weapons and equipment commonly in use LEGALLY. Statistically
speaking they are rarely used in any crimes at all. Banning guns of any type is a game changer for me. I've seen first hand what happens to an unarmed
population when people who want to take advantage of them show up...With guns.
What are your other objections? I mean - just dismissing him out of hand without knowing ANY of his other points is rather, well -
Don't assume that I don't know Mr. Sanders' platform. He's a Democratic Socialist. While many of his ideas sound good on the surface, it is just
another ideology, like conservatism and liberalism, that create a blanket policy system for a country made up of 50 entirely different economies with
50 entirely different demographics. Thus far socialism has only proven to work in small nations with a monolithic population and culture, and
conservative monetary policy.
Look at the EU. They tried using a huge monolithic monetary union to transmute credit into a windfall cash machine to enhance each member nations'
standard of living. What actually happened, and is happening now, is that nations were allowed to use a common currency, drive unilateral economic
policy, and force other nations to pay for it. Greece is a good example. That powder keg is about to explode and people wanna vote for a guy that will
do it here?
No thanks. I understand math.
