I don't think Bernie will run and I don't think trump will either. Both are having serious health issues.

The important races will be in the house and senate sack of clowns.

If he is elected and his schemes form fat roots I will quit my job. Why even work. I already earned enough coin already. I will just sit back and enjoy watching this disaster. I will not be spending money trying to help the local economy, buying anything I do not need (which is how I achieved wealth). I can live more frugal than any Bernie Bros. Let's do this. Go ahead and elect him. No impact on my life. I actually liked living frugal. It's my wife that wants to spend it all.

Bernie wants to add big taxes to anyone making more than 29k a year. It starts out for those that make a couple bucks over minimum wage.

Now if the 15 bucks an hour minimum wage ever goes thru, and if bernie gets elected and has his way anyone working full time will be taxed out the ass.


15 bucks an hour at 40 hpw comes out a little over 30k a year.


So go vote for bernie if you want to lose the raise you are about to get, plus a little extra just to make sure you stay poor.

The collateral damage will be severe also. state and local authorities will need to raise taxes and fees to comply with additional rules and red tape that will be imposed by a president Sanders.

I won't be enjoying it because I have teenage boys that are just now getting ready to enter the workforce. I hope they have an opportunity at an enjoyable life instead of living in a country that will resemble Venezuela in a quick few years and become slaves to a government...literally!

I have empathy for you. For me though, I would be officially done. I'm not going to be punished for achieving some success in life the hard way. Not all wealthy people were born into their circumstances. Some actually worked very hard and made uncommon sacrifices. I'm not willing to pay anymore considering I still cut my own hair, make my own laundry soap, no cable TV and still change my own oil. Screw Bernie thinking he can punish me for just being a frugal bastard. I will quit my job. No money for you Bernie. Can't tax what is no longer earned.

When democrats are promising free stuff and demonizing rich people it's just a sign that it's election season.

Promises promises.....

He can say anything but he will not have the ability to get it done.

One thing I can promise though... And I can get it done.... I will be dumping stocks like hot potatoes if bernie wins the election....


If you really have money tied up in the stock market you should have done that around a year ago.


I did.

I suppose you have a link to Trump's serious health issues? We know Bernie got a stent, so what? He's better off now than before.

I'm no Bernie fan but I am a fan of facts. The memes are flying around social media so I checked for myself. The tax rate from Bernie's plan isn't that much different from the current rate. I'm sure there will be hidden taxes with Bernie's stuff, but on the surface those sky-high taxes aren't there until your income is over a half mil.

Depends what sky high means. I looked at his tax rate and I pay more. NOT ACCEPTABLE. I pay enough already considering most pay nothing. Not going to happen. I will quit and retire. Bernie is not getting anymore of my money period. I will not only quit, I will also completely stop supporting local businesses and hope they all fail so this never happens again. If we need to go through this though let's do it. I want to see the full scale of stupidity from the sidelines.

A lot of the messages I've seen lately have been saying Bernie's going to tax $30k income at 52%. That's just not true.

Having said that, I do not want to see what would happen if he were elected, I'm afraid my wife and I would end up homeless.

Really? If I took your advise, my 401K would be 500K less than it is today. What's the matter with you? You want everyone to be poor so you can say "orange man bad"?

I'm not paying Bernie's taxes. I do well but not making millions a year and he wants to tax me more. Not happening. I was really just working for fun but I will absolutely retire. He will get nothing from me. He may believe he is motivated but I assure you, anyone who has earned anything the hard way is way way more motivated in not letting him get his hands on it. I can't stress this enough. If he tries to increase taxes he will be beat over the head with a bat infused with nails. Not happening.

Isn't that kind of mentality exactly the same as the so called 'crazy leftists', who want the economy to crash, just so they can prove Trump was wrong.

No, it just proves what socialism does... it takes away people's motivation to work hard to succeed.

After all, why bother?

The more you make, the more the government takes from you to feed and clothe and house those who do nothing.

Which is why Hegel and Marx' grand ideology has always failed and always will.

Because you either have to take human nature out of the equation entirely or have a totalitarian government that completely controls the populace.
