My God, that is so far from logical or accurate, it's mind-wrenching.
Correct! Because nothing Bernie is talking about has anything to do with those countries.
Mind-wrenching is how I would describe your blind ignorance to that fact. This has all been hashed out 100 times.
My God, you people make me tired.
The constitution specifically supports private property, minimal government and government seizure of property, and maximum privacy in all things personal and business. We already have laws against illegal business practices, and don't need any more for punishment of success or property ownership.
Bernie specifically wants to go in the opposite direction. That's what he's taking from every decent, free American.
Yeah, one of those people is Bernie Sanders who wants to destroy the United States Constitution, and wants to be in charge of the economy, and society in general.

We've already been over this, and you have repeatedly failed to answer in a line-item fashion, which 'liberties' delineated in the thread are being threatened.
I'm not going to post them again.
Go back and read the "liberties" being discussed, and for that matter, the whole thread, and then answer WHICH OF THOSE LIBERTIES Bernie is going to take away from you.
Which of them? Specifically?
Bernie Sanders: To Rein In Wall Street, Fix the Fed
By BERNIE SANDERS DEC. 23, 2015
If I were elected president, the foxes would no longer guard the henhouse. To ensure the safety and soundness of our banking system, we need to fundamentally restructure the Fed’s governance system to eliminate conflicts of interest. Board members should be nominated by the president and chosen by the Senate. Banking industry executives must no longer be allowed to serve on the Fed’s boards and to handpick its members and staff. Board positions should instead include representatives from all walks of life — including labor, consumers, homeowners, urban residents, farmers and small businesses.
Democratic socialists on the other hand are typically seen as more radical left-wingers and advocate the outright replacement of capitalism with socialism. European parties such as Greece's Syriza or Spain's Podemos aim to drastically reduce inequality through radical changes in policy. Democratic socialists would have government inject itself into the financial system and take control of natural resources to help the broader populace before private profit.
Climate change is the most important issue of our time, and I fear that when I am old it will have become the only issue that matters. Sanders proposes taxing carbon and would do what it takes to reduce emissions in a country that emits far more per capita than practically any other industrialized country. Climate change and inequality are intertwined, as the latter enables the former by depriving those most at risk of the power they need to avoid disaster.
Venezuela Rations Electricity, Blames Climate Change
by Frances Martel29 Apr 2015
The Venezuelan government will begin rationing electrical supplies this week in response to high demand triggered by heat. Public employees will only have to work six hours a day until further notice, and police units will be sent to inspect private businesses to ensure they only use their allotted amounts. Venezuelan Vice President Jorge Arreaza blamed the measures on climate change.
First thing Americans will lose is the ability to defend ourselves from criminals, and we will lose our second amendment right...
