We all knew that Bernie is an avowed socialist with communist leanings. But did you know he praised the Cuban government. The very same government that so many now US citizens risked their lives to leave in boats?

Did you know he thinks bread lines are a good thing because bread lines mean equality of the classes, the rich must get in line with the poor?

www.foxnews.com...


“It’s funny, sometimes American journalists talk about how bad a country is because people are lining up for food. That’s a good thing,” he said in an old video clip.“In other countries, people don’t line up for food, rich people get the food and poor people starve to death.”
(video clip within the link above) Bernie also defended Marxist Sandinista regime in Nicaragua and the Soviet Union.

Recently on 60 minutes Sanders again defended Cuba again basically saying all the good things Castro did outweigh the good he did for Cuba. www.foxnews.com...

As a US Senator Sanders Sanders took several “goodwill” trips not only to the USSR, but also to Cuba and Nicaragua, where the Soviets were trying to expand their influence in our hemisphere. nypost.com...

It is clear that Sanders wants to morph the US into at a minimum a socialist country. In my opinion the US won't do any better than Venezuela. I don't want a President who thinks bread lines are good because everyone is equally poor. That is what happened in Venezuela.

In my personal opinion, Sanders doesn't just want the US to be socialist, but eventually to become communist.


www.washingtonexaminer.com...


In 1972, Sanders, then a gubernatorial protest candidate for the socialist Liberty Union Party, visited an alternative high school in Rutland, Vermont, to give his campaign pitch. During a question-and-answer session, Sanders, then 31, brushed off accusations of being a left-wing radical. "I don't mind people coming up and calling me a communist," Sanders said."


The Democratic Party leadership clearly knows the type of country Sanders has openly dreamed of for the US. Sanders has been quite public and open about it since the early 1970's. They have allowed him to run not just once but now twice within the Democratic Party. To me that says that the Democratic Party is clearly now a socialist party with communist leanings, the constant "Jan" like screaming "Russia Russia Russia" could be a diversionary tactic to hide what they want for the US.

All these pictures of lines of people waiting for face masks and other goods thanks to the WuFlu ought to send shivers up his leg then.

The #1 food stamp item is soda. Most of the stuff bought with food assistance is junk food so Bernie is on to something. Get rid of food stamps and go to military style MRE's. Basic need met. Don't like it then don't eat it. Take it or leave it. Willing to bet most would leave it alone.

It's a good thing if you are starving and standing in line!

"Although approximately one out of six Americans experiences food insecurity today, there is a more than adequate amount of food available. Hunger in America can be solved."

Not exactly. Venezuela is a complex situation and just blaming socialism is lazy.

Well back in the days of Hippies and their Commune at Myrtle Hill:


In 1971, a young man named Bernie Sanders visited Myrtle Hill Farm, a rural Vermont commune for disaffected white middle-class kids. Its residents' back-to-the-land lifestyle was meant to free them from a culture that had come, in the midst of war and racial unrest, to seem "an unstoppable torrent of death and destruction, all for no reason."

Myrtle Hill had an all-are-welcome policy—for three days. Then the core owners would decide by consensus whether you were cool to hang around. Sanders' tendency to just sit around talking politics and avoid actual physical labor got him the boot.


Bernie knows nothing about work except he doesn't like it. Even the Hippies could spot a bad apple in 1971.

Speaking of Cuba, there's a great commentary on communism versus capitalism in this movie with regards to the main character setting up a business to remove annoying zombies from your household or apartment:



"Capitalism Rises!"

*shakes head*

What can anyone say?

The individual right to self-determine is a fundamental foundation of our society, our culture, our heritage.

The US Constitution would not allow this, this, Bernies platforms are the very antithesis of our Constitution.

Sanders, like so many other wannabe's would like to see a starker contrast between the ruling elite and the "commoner". Maybe he and his entourage should move to China. I'm sure he will find it to his liking and we won't miss him one bit.

The days of Conservative versus ????? or visa versa are long over. It is Globalism versus Nationalism now. At least for the Western world or European nations.

Do some reading of the 12 planks and Fabian Society. Add in the Kalergi plan and the social conditioning from our colleges and the MSM/hollyweird, and it's quite obvious it has nothing to do with Constitutional values but with destroying the Constitution itself along with our cultures and traditions.
We have a rogue government/civil servants hellbent on destroying the Republic.

Haven't read that, will take your word for now.
It does appear many are actively seeking to destroy the republic.
Very sad imo.

Yes. He will not be winning FLA. Cubans are a problem for him and now that Broward country got pulled by their ears last time Bernie has no shot.

Guess what? Even though I know I will be eating at every meal this week, I regularly experience "food insecurity" because I don't necessarily know what those meals will be.

That is how they measure food insecurity in children. They ask them if they know what they're having for their next meal, not *if* they'll be having a next meal.

So you agree "bread lines" which means basic food items, are a good thing like Bernie said.

The phrase means, people get in line to get basic food items and basic clothing needs, etc.

I visited East Berlin several times while it was communist. (military and families with their military member were allowed to travel freely in East Berlin as per a treaty). What I saw was people standing in line for strawberries, a line that was more than block long to get a handful. I saw a Black Friday type line to get blue jeans, not designer jeans, just ordinary jeans. It was my personal philosophy not to get into any "bread line" for anything because the people there were highly rationed these items. Bread lines are not just bread, they are in season foods, sometimes even other basics people needed to cook. I also saw many clothing items that they were only allowed one a time and stood in hours long lines for - that was a "bread line".

You implied you think a line for basic foods is good because it motivates people to go in the military. Really? I got to see how the communist military lived, their food was also scarce and bland, but did meet basic calorie needs even if stale or they ate the same things over and over.

Bernie spent time in Russia and Cuba, and KNOWS "bread lines" means basic food items.

Now that you know what a "bread line" is, do you still think it is a good thing?

Are you excited about spending a several hours long line to get basic food items, and basic clothing items? Because it means everyone in the country is equally poor? That is exactly what I saw first hand with my 6 trips into East Germany.

I went there to shop because the exchange rate was such that a 100 East German currency was worth $10 US. Many items had prices that many could not afford without saving up a long time for it. I paid $20 for a pram, a necessity for parents, they didn't have strollers, which would have been 200 East German currency.

Shhhhhhh!, lets keep this on the down low until Bernie wins the Dem ticket. I am pretty sure Trump will make good use of this if he and Bernie are in a debate together.

Rent-a-babies were a thing in communist countries.

Young women with an infant were given priority in the lines. It was fairly common within family to "pass the baby around" so that people could get preferential treatment in the food store queues.

Cheers
