Sanders was extremely popular when he was in the state as well, so I doubt that is likely.

He's setting a new standard. America is obviously tired of being enslaved.

Right now the corporations get the free goodies. There will always be free goodies. Should corporations get them, and not the people who produce the free goodies?

Where have I ever stated Businesses/Corps should get "free goodies"?


ALL Welfare needs to end, with little exceptions.

And some of those "free goodies" are available for all. Like business moving expenses. People can write off moving expenses as well.

Well, of course he does! The Republicans are deliberately playing the villains and Democratic voters have been closet socialists for decades. Throw in the marauding online socialist Sanders groupies and the socialist MSM and what do you expect?


You can play the conservative drinking game with this post. Take a shot every time you see the word "socialist" in this post.

If you remove the democracy from the equation you end up with 385 delagate for Clinton, and 85 for Sanders. The rest of the election is dog & pony show for Democrats. I am not sure how these delegate actually cast their votes, but apparently has nothing to with the peoples vote.

The MSM is socialist? Quick tell Rupert Murdock that FOX is socialist I want to see his head explode.

The Republicans are in some ways even more socialist than the Democrats just look at all the government money they give to corporations that pay virtually no taxes. They push for more tax breaks for the wealthy that already pays less in taxes than the average middle class worker pays.

Btw way why does you avatar mention socialism but shows a symbol that is associated with Communism?


Don't forget the military, which is quite literally nothing more than a welfare program these days. They take anyone who stays out of drugs and isn't a criminal, pay you to do a job that probably doesn't need doing, house you, and train you.

...all on the taxpayers dime.

Sorry, I felt like your analogy there needed to be finished.

Why yes nothing says 'freedom' like a political ideology of government giving people things they can't get on their own.

The reality is that is what they call enslavement.

Pretty much like how the African Americans were enslaved once upon a time in America.

Free homes,free clothes,.free 'education' and free 'healthcare.

Sanders, and his ideology represent the complete antithesis of what it means to be free.

In fact anyone that supports Sanders shows us ALL just what true inequality is.

Minority rights really don't matter to Sanders or his follwers.

What the mob wants. The mob gets by proxy called 'government'.

The new master.

Sure don't forgot it.

Just remember satellites,internets,in dash vehicle navigation,medicine, and all the perks of 'modern' life is the direct result of military spending.

Now the analogy is finished.

Ps don't forget the millions of middle class workers that ALL make their living off that technology, and derivative technologies.

But i digress ' military spending is a waste'.

Of course that is the ONLY thing paying for the WELFARE industrial complex the LEFT loves so much.

Because we know the people that are using those programs are paying little or nothing in return.

It sounds to me like you just made the case for welfare being a good thing.

Also, most of your examples were less military specific and more examples of why putting immense government funding into researching various sectors can be beneficial and deliver in ways that private companies could never hope to match.

Hahahaha! You ain't seen nothin yet! Just wait for social justice to make everyone equal. That's when you'll see real slavery.

Satellites - spying on our enemies (and allies) - military
In-dash vehicle navigation (GPS) - better missile targeting - military
Medicine - Since the 1960s, the U.S. military has played a role in the development of eight licensed vaccines including Rubella, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis A.

I'm not sure how welfare recipients paying nothing into a system that military technology enabled makes a case for welfare.

Is there another way you're wrong that I missed?

Bernie will be up against a Republican Congress, continuing many of the same policies as now, nothing will get through, legislation would bottleneck, none of his fantasies will work.

4 years with a basically lame duck President.

Okay great

I'm not from Vermont, but you can get a sense of how honest and sincere he is just by listening to his answers and seeing the expression on his face. His voting record speaks for itself. He's truly a man of the people in which he serves.



America will be Cuba under a Sanders presidency. Add tens of millions of illegal immigrants with FULL AMNESTY, and off we go.

Hows' that ?

Name one product or technology that came from the lefts social engineering programs.

Or anything out of 'Scandinavian in the lat 50 years that has changed the world.

Or created millions of job around the world, and created trillions in wealth?

Cellphones,internets,GPS, 'social media' that made Zuckerberg,Gates, and Jobs.

To name a few.

I really do love the IRONY.

We have military spending to thank for the last 50 years of PROGRESS.

What are you trying to prove here? You asked for a company from Scandinavia that is innovative, employing tons of people and has changed the world. I gave you 10 of them. You respond with tech created for the military that has been adopted for civilian use, which isn't Capitalism by the way. It's more or less a form of Communism actually. Government owned production of goods and services.
