A simple rebuttal is: The left wants equality at the 'finish line'. The right wants equality at the starting line....
We have talks of spending half a trillion to round up, and deport 11 million people. Most don't care, but the army is typically called in for this.
We have talks of raising our minimum wage - that is being shot down left, right, center, above, and below. Yet the corporate socialism and giant tax breaks are good for the American people and the economy, even after Alan Greenspan said himself his ideology was flawed.
We have talks of nationwide healthcare, for everyone - and again, it is being shot down. You want healthcare? Pull yourself up from your bootstraps, you filthy bum.
We have a new term many Americans have never heard before, "Democratic Socialism," and for some those words clearly spell out "Full-fledged government tyranny and totalitarian regime state," which is simply absurd. People are talking about Pol Pot, and Mao Zedong, and comparing them to Bernie Sanders?
We have talks of free tuition for public universities - again, this is being criticized. We are not customers, as much as some of you would like us to be. EDUCATION - what's that again? Where certain privileged individuals are allowed to go depending if they can afford it? Go Education!
