Idiots like Bern and there totalitarian remarks are making it so easy to re elect Trump that it's almost scary....seriously between Biden and his
taxes...Bern and this...almost worried about what Trump has in store for average tax paying people, as the rest of the clowns have become so Orwellian
that they are not electable!
Oh he's not an idiot. The idiots are the comfortably middle class people who vote for people like him. It's certainly not stupid to vote for
socialism if you're broke and damn near homeless. Sanders is just a typical political predator who knows how to sell his platform.
What he really wants is anyone's best guess. Maybe he really believes in what he's selling (there's no accounting for taste, as they say).
I think it's safe to say that most political agendas are driven by ego and will to power. Even if he's too old to be around when his "grand vision"
come to pass, people will do that. They think there's some kind of special purpose in having a legacy (there isn't but if the thought of it drives an
individual, reality doesn't matter).
Whatever. I mean, from the average person's POV, socialism is certainly appealing (especially if you're on the lowest notch of the economic scale).
Desperate people cannot be blamed for advocating for themselves. When you're desperate, you do what you have to do. It's best not to go there. I just
think it's better to look at the situation the way it really is. As long as there are people who are not well served by the current system, there will
be a "market" for socialism.
