...when Bernie keeps on racking up the debt with no way to pay it.


Taxes will pay for it. How more clear can I get? He will raise taxes on the wealthiest Americans. How Bernie pays for his proposals

I mean...do you just assume that he intends to rack up debt and not raise any additional revenue? Things cost money.


He is not in any way, shape, or form pro 2nd.



Voted YES on allowing firearms in checked baggage on Amtrak trains.
Voted YES on prohibiting foreign & UN aid that restricts US gun ownership.
Voted YES on prohibiting product misuse lawsuits on gun manufacturers.
Voted YES on prohibiting suing gunmakers & sellers for gun misuse.


I mean, if you're single issue isn't second amendment rights but assault-weapons rights, then...don't vote for Sanders. Don't suggest he's not pro-2nd amendment 'in any way, shape, or form' though.
Bernie Sanders on Gun Policy

“Folks who do not like guns [are] fine. But we have millions of people who are gun owners in this country — 99.9 percent of those people obey the law. I want to see real, serious debate and action on guns, but it is not going to take place if we simply have extreme positions on both sides. I think I can bring us to the middle.”

If Sanders believes 99.9% of gun owners obey the law, why does he feel there is a need to ban semi automatic center fire rifles?

It is well known that more people are killed every year with hands and feet as opposed to semi automatic rifles and shotguns.

That makes me question his intentions.

And don't worry, I won't for him.

You didn't bother to read the link, did you?



A vast majority of hunters don't use semi-assault weapons when they hunt. They don't need it. They don't have magazines that can shoot 30 bullets at a time. So that I would hope that, as a nation, we would ban these types of assault weapons so they don't get into the hands of people who are gun dealers or are out shooting at police officers. I would hope we could agree on that.

Google Fabian socialism, please, before you embrace his politics.

I mean FDR's politics, not Bernie's.

At least google Fabian socialism. It isn't what you think. The elite are Fabian socialists. They don't care about the poor...they only care about controlling the poor.

BTW, I am not afraid of socialism. I am only afraid of a corrupt Congress spending money in a highly socialist economy.

If it weren't for our corrupt Congress, I would be all for a socialist economy that cares for all of America. FDR was a Fabian though.

"They don't need it" LMAO

The 2nd has nothing to do with hunting.

That statement further proves Sanders either knows nothing about (I don't believe that), or is not pro 2nd.

Again, that is why I question the intentions of anyone that wants to ban semi automatic center fire rifles.

Hmmm so I'm curious...

Does this path of accountability end with total control?

Where do we draw the lawn, when do we stop allowing the government to control the market?


Never. 100% free markets are very bad things in a capitalistic society. They typically result in roughly 97% of the population losing everything every few years and massively lower quality of life. Free markets get you longer hours, lower pay, fewer if any benefits, no safety net, no minimum wages, lead poisoned water, and all the rest. Then on top of that you get 2008 or 1929 style financial collapses every few years due to the bubble economies that form and burst.

If your vote can be influenced by a meme, please stay home on election day.

I've made this comparison on ATS several times, but no one wants to hear it. FDR's policies most DEFINITELY were Socialist in nature. Even he admits they were derived from Socialist political ideology.
