Go back and read from where you left off, bro.
Then you'll know.

Don't trust anyone just answering you "yes" or "no" as to consensus having been reached....you're asking the participants. Go find out for yourself. Check the links, read the posted data, and then you tell us if a consensus has been reached........

You should really know better.

Thank you for your reply.

I don't know Sanders personally, so I cannot comment to his character.

I have yet to find an argument that would get me to support socialism.

I do appreciate the recap.

Aww, thanks!

The OP posits that Sanders is a socialist. It has thus been proven by all commenters that Sanders is, in fact, a socialist. Whether socialism itself is good, is still a hotly debated topic within the thread. There has been little, to no, discussion whether or not Sanders is a good man.


Nice summation


Because of time, everything is moving, moving into the future.

Socialism is a direction as much as a state of being. Socialism is evil, therefore Bernie can't be good.

But we're asking the wrong questions here and getting the wrong answers.

What would Sanders do if elected president and what has he done as Senator and Mayor? Would he turn the USA into a NAZI regime to rival Hitler? Would he turn us all Red? No.

He would try to update, add, change and/or Implement some social programs. What is a social program? We already have them, medicaid, medicare, Obamacare, K-12 Education, Social SEcurity, unemployment benefits and on and on and on.

Are any of those social programs worth implementing or changing? Those are the questions.

Medicare and Medicaid have increased the cost of health care for everyone, including the people on Medicare and Medicaid. Social Security is a Ponzi Scheme and it reduces everyone's income. Unemployement benefits come out of the worker's wages and require higher taxes which also come out of the worker's wages. k-12 education has always been leverage on society by the Powers That Be, a place where you learn that Social Programs are manna from heaven.

All of these programs are using taxes to buy votes for massive government. None of them are necessary in a natural economy. Socialism ruins the economy.

Some people need these programs now. These programs should be grandfathered out.

Any truth to this....?

if so, look out !!!

Bernie Sanders: ‘Democratic Socialist’ Or Out-And-Out Stalinist?


As a college student in 1963, Sanders was a guest of the Hashomer Hatzair, a Marxist youth movement founded by communist Ya’akov Hazan, who called the Soviet Union a second homeland and eulogized Stalin as “the great leader and extolled commander. We lower our flag in grief in memory of the great revolutionary fighter (and) architect of socialist construction.”

Ignoring Stalin’s atrocities, Hazan oozed: “His huge historical achievements will guide generations in their march toward the reign of socialism and communism the world over.”

The Marxist movement Sanders joined pledged its allegiance to the Soviet Union and was described as “Stalinist” as late as 1969 — well after Sanders’ visit.

Well there's the Rub or the issue. It's fun to say the constitution doesn't call for helping our fellow citizens out and we all want smaller government and lower taxes, but...

how do you grandfather people out? What would happen if we just stopped all of those social or welfare programs?

What if I we hit a world wide Depression and I lost my business and my wife lost her job and we were scraping by on part time work, if we were that lucky and then one of our kids got cancer and then I got in a car wreck and couldn't work and how could I afford to homeschool my children right now, I can't, and then who pays for infrastructure, like our highways and bridges, and how many children couldn't afford college if we did away with all the grants, loans and subsidies.

You see the problems, right?

Those problems are going to happen for sure-- because of social programs. They only thing keeping the socialism we already have rolling along is debt.

When the system crashes, the social program you depend on will have to walk on water, because everything in the economy will be jammed into the wrong place.

They aren't a measurable demographic ,they are an attempt to alter the vote left ,which is WHY California is trying to so with driver's licences.
Doesn't actually using the TERM demographic only apply to American citizens alone and not a large faction of tresspassers?

We need to counter assault ,ask your husband why 30 rd semis are good for that it's too obvious to need to discuss.
WHO do we need to counter assault?
Wayward BLM supporters,racists who want to kill whites, refugees who aren't refugees,Xanex users and their cousins,a tyrannical govt, To protect helpless liberals when an EMP pulse hits, a national disaster occurs and we have to repel looters ,Contractors on the border from drug cartels ( NOBODY else is dong anything) or ANY foreign power who thinks they can take us, La raza,White supremacists, wild boar hunts,...JUST to name a few.

You have a history of using dishonest debate tactics on this site, so again no surprise to me that you would twist one's words around to fulfil your agenda.

LOL...wow, ignorance is bless huh?... The video showing him saying these things I mentioned does not exist according to you?... Really?..



Links, and even a script of what he said was posted here, but you want to deny it?...

Stop trying to insult the messenger with false rhetoric and debate the topic instead if you can. Otherwise just leave and post in the "mud pit". Thanks...

Bernie Sanders’s Kibbutz Found. Surprise: It’s Socialist.

By STEVEN ERLANGERFEB. 5, 2016


JERUSALEM — Senator Bernie Sanders volunteered on an Israeli kibbutz in the 1960s, but he has always been vague about the specific location. Now, the mystery about the Democratic presidential candidate’s past appears to have been solved, in the archives of the Israeli newspaper Haaretz.

Yossi Melman, a longtime Haaretz writer, remembers an interview he did with Mr. Sanders in 1990, the year he was elected to represent Vermont in the House. Haaretz dug up that clip, in which Mr. Sanders said he had spent several months in 1963 working on Kibbutz Sha’ar Ha’amakim, near Haifa in northern Israel, as a guest of the Hashomer Hatzair youth movement.
...

www.nytimes.com...

Bernie's little brother tried to get into the British Parliament. His little brother had also stayed in two Jewish communal farms.

thehill.com...

It seems socialism runs in the Sanders family.

BTW, there will always be members of ATS and other people denying these truths. Just like they had been denying that Bernie is a socialist to finally have to admit he is one...

We have known since he FIRST OPENED HIS MOUTH that he is a "socialist" - you are acting all surprised to have found that out. He calls himself a socialist. Openly, blatantly. He never tried to hide it.

The problem is that you don't understand the difference between socialized health care and education and full-out Communism. No Part of Bernie's platform is to take control of all businesses. None.

No Part of it includes forcing everyone to live an "equal" quality of life.
No Part At All.
GOT IT?

He's NOT A COMMUNIST.

Oh, and anyone intelligent enough to be talking about socialism already knows that kibbutz is like a commune.
Duh.
Get over yourself.

It is a nuance within the firearms industry. The original developer called it a silencer. Some call it a suppressor because it just suppresses the sound.

But I ask, how did this become a conversation piece?
