I Don't Feel the Bern

Bernie Sanders has been in Congress for 23 years.  He has served in both the House and the Senate.  During that time he has authored no legislation of any consequence.  He has pushed forward no initiatives that matter.

When I hear from his supporters for the nomination for president, all the talk about is all his new ideas.  Those new ideas consist of confiscatory tax rates and giving that money to people who might vote for him.  Free college is not free, someone has to pay for it.

Socialism has proven time and time again that in groups of larger than a few people, just does not work in the long run. The Soviet Union fell because their economy could not compete.  Even Communist China and Vietnam have given it up.  North Korea and Cuba are disasters and they are two of the few nations that have socialist economies.  We don't need that here; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
