Regardless of what you think about Donald Trump, his personality, his behavior or whatever, some things seem clear. He shoots from the hip, acts without a well thought out strategy, ignores advice from experienced experts and of course, he tries his best to appeal to those who support his policies.
Now read the above Tweet.
Is Sanders any different? Oh sure, his causes always seem altruistic and they are very appealing, but they do not consider consequences and they are not based on facts while at the same time they ignore any semblance of individual responsibility.
45 million people are not drowning under student debt. The average debt is quite manageable as are the monthly payments. In addition, this is debt incurred by individuals who made all the decisions about what to spend, what to borrow, what courses to spend the money on and should have thought about how they would handle their debt.
What a slap in the face cancelling ALL debt is to students who have paid their debts, to parents who sacrificed to help their children through college and to Americans who didn’t have the opportunity to attend college or did so over many years at night or earned veteran benefits.
Trump and Sanders are very different people with very different views of people and the world, but being shortsighted, lacking understanding of consequences and economic systems and human nature are common factors … and both will create serious problems in the future.
