What is most scary about Bernie Sanders is not the old hippie himself, but his ardent supporters who accept, as gospel and without exercising a modicum of prudence, what he says and promises.
Some who share the candidate’s goals suggest that his proposals, especially on health care, could increase the federal government’s size by over 50 percent.
While I admit I can’t figure out how my grandchildren are being taught the new way to add or multiply numbers, I still think 2+2=4, nothing is really free and you can’t run a country on taxes paid by two percent of the population.
Simply put, what Sanders proposes does not add up or more accurately adds up a to financial apocalypse. Sure it sounds good and it fits well into his socialist ideology. However, his rhetoric is appeal to people seeking easy answers and ready scapegoats, but neither government nor life work that way which apparently only those of us on plant earth for more than four decades understand.
It’s not as if all this is that hard to figure out. After all, many of his supports are well educated (they must be since they are complaining about student loans all the time). 🙄 So why are people willing to accept his promises as gospel while ignoring even the tax burdens required in the countries he admires?
