OPINION| If you watched the Democrat Presidential Candidate Debate this week … I’m sorry, that must have been painful!
Of course, ‘Democratic Socialist’ (not to be confused with Hitler’s ‘National Socialists’ or Nazis, of the Axis powers during WW2) Bernie Sanders was leading the pack with the most delegates headed into the free stuff-a-thon.
Bernie does not have just conservatives and libertarians freaking out over the idea that a self-professed socialist may be one of the two candidates running for President come November, Democrat establishment members, and DS hacks are also up in arms.
A recent report from the Independent suggested that Democrat super delegates were once again looking to … suspend democracy (my words, not theirs) and squash Sanders’ rise to power, even if he were to garner the most votes in the Democrat Primary.
‘DNC superdelegates warn they will block Bernie Sanders at the convention and spark civil war within party’
If Mr Sanders arrives at the convention with any less than a majority of delegates pledged to him, he may find himself with a wave of superdelegates voting against his nomination.
The New York Times reported Thursday that in interviews with 93 superdelegates, only nine said that Mr Sanders arriving at the convention with a plurality was reason enough to support him as the nominee.
In the event that Mr Sanders does only win a plurality of pledged delegates, there could be a brokered convention and subsequent fight to choose a nominee.
It looks like the deck is stacked against Bernie and Tim Allen took to Twitter during the last debate with a pretty good explanation of why … the definition of ‘Socialism.’
The Conservative iconic TV and movie star Tweeted:
1 : any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods.
2 : a system of society or group living in which there is no private property

Of course Bernie’s shills were quick to try and differentiate Bernie’s ‘Democratic Socialism’ from … (‘Regular?’) Socialism.
Yet again we are faced with one of those ‘those socialists just didn’t do it right’ arguments which we always hear from authoritarians.
Here is the bottom line: Sanders’ wants to take your stuff and give it to the people who vote for him. Period, full stop. All I need to know about Bernie, I can learn in this clip:

“We’re very opposed to the authoritarian nature of Cuba but, you know, it’s unfair to simply say everything is bad,”
“You know? When Fidel Castro came into office, you know what he did? He had a massive literacy program. Is that a bad thing? Even though Fidel Castro did it?” Sanders told 60 Minuets.
Who in their right mind thinks it is a good idea to praise a mass-murdering dictator who rose to power by wiping out his political enemies … with bullets? Bernie Sanders, that’s who.
Anyway, Tim Allen’s tweet tells us all we need to know about Sanders and his movement. Read the definition of Socialism again …
“a system of society or group living in which there is no private property.”
No, I have yet to hear Bernie call for the total abolition of private property, however, that is the inevitable end of his proposals. After all, Bernie wants to implement a plan which experts project would cost an ADDITIONAL $97,500,000,000,000 (97.5 trillion dollars) over the next ten years.
Last year we spent about $4.45 trillion, and Bernie is already suggesting a plan that would cost nearly another $10 trillion … annually. That would put us at $14.5 trillion in gov spending with a GPD (without current system where those who create and take risks get to keep some of the money they earn) of about $20 trillion.
That’s around 75% of our current GPD which Bernie wants to have the Government spend. However, what do you think will happen to GDP when tax rates go through the roof and incentives for risk-taking and investment disappear? My guess is that GDP will plummet. However, you can bet that Bernie will not spend less when it does. This may well result in more government spending than the value of the product of every man and woman in the United States of America.
How anyone in their right mind could think this would be a good idea is beyond comprehension.
If Bernie Sanders is elected President I would expect to see a complete and total collapse of the US’ economy. Property values would crash, the stock market would trend toward 0, corporations and anyone with the means to flee the growth crushing policies Sanders implements would leave the country ASAP.
The more I think about this the more I realize that we are in a battle for the very existence of our nation. I beg of you, do not become complacent, get out and vote in 2020, for if we do not our children may grow up in an economic wasteland, devoid of even the memory of what freedom means.
