    The political system is set up for 2 areas of people, the individual and the group. The left side of the spectrum is seen as the side that favors the group needs over the individual needs. The right side of the spectrum favors the individual needs over the group needs. So when Bernie says he wants the group to have free Medicare, free education, free liposuction, he is favoring the group which means that he is leftist, Democratic Socialist is a nice term that makes people believe they still have a choice. But at the end of the day our taxes will look similar to lots of places in Europe, which is somewhere around 40-60% tax rates for everybody. People want free things but want others to pay for them. Poor lazy people want everything for free and that’s just the truth because once you work and realize where your money goes, you want to keep as much as possible.

    The only reason people have him pegged as somebody who is so far left, is because President Trump has America in a secluded Lighthouse in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean!!

    I am deeply concerned and saddened by the people who support Bernie. Hopefully you guys see the real light and work ethics of actual workers in America.
    Real workers earn their hard earned money, not spoon fed to them.
    Real workers want more money in order to start their own business or to save it responsibly.
    Real workers focus on the task at hand, not about what’s happening outside of it.
    Real workers don’t care about their ethnicity or background, they only care about providing for themselves or their families.
    Real workers will find a solution, they won’t wait for government aid.
    It really honestly comes down to “Where there is a will, there is a way.”
    What Bernie says looks good on the outside but it will be the downfall of American society if he gets elected. Any type of democrat who makes these types of claims will never be elected because the real workers will always elect someone who is pro-business, not pro-morals because morality is highly opinionated meanwhile business is simply survival of the fittest.

    Can someone here please tell me his plan is to fix the problems he's talking about? He talks a lot, and says nothing on how to fix said problems. At this point in time, there's only one guy I'm voting for, and he has a plan. This guy doesn't. Has so much time gone by that we forget how this guy treated our neighbors to the north.

    I don't know why he keeps insisting on calling himself a socialist, when it is only hurting him and he clearly IS NOT.
    Germany, France, Scandinavia etc are all not "socialist", just because they have social healthcare, education and the like.
    Bernie Sanders is not a socialist, "democratic" or otherwise.

    1. He biggest weakness is he is just old tired guy 2. He is not realistic. 3. He offers stuff to potential voters. He has a chance like Trump because they share #2 and # 3. In his favor: he is not a criminal, but he is not too honest either

    He’s a modern day FDR! Those against him r the wealthier and corporations who have been loving their capitalist system w/more socialist programs/policies for the wealthy and corporations since Reagan. It’s time to get back to gov that works for the common good and protects the M&L classes and small/medium companies from the unfair, sometimes predatory, laws/practices of the wealthy/corporations but we need dem control of the full congress if we want change.

    In Europe, Bernie would represent one of the two big parties with widest support, social democracy, centre-left. And even the centre-right party would agree with him on healthcare etc.

  • Ondřej Tureček
    Ondřej Tureček 4 months ago +1

    Why is “healthcare for everybody” far left but “police, firemen, army for everybody” isn’t? Americans should each hire their own policeman and pay him per pullet, feed him and buy him new clothes and equipment...that would be “American”, right?;-)

    • Grantholm Saxifrage
      Grantholm Saxifrage 4 months ago

      Healthcare is a big part of the economy and moving it to single payer is not really explained on how this would be implemented. Some people fear that if this is implemented before drug prices and hospital costs are put in check that we are opening our citizens wealth as risk for companies to drain them dry. People also worry about the jobs that are currently in health insurance companies and how do they transfer over to not having those companies anymore. Last is how many people have their pensions and 401k tied up into healthcare and what would happened to them if Medicare for all is implemented. If he focuses on explaining that and stop trying to throw everything else and the kitchen sink to get votes he will ensure people rally behind him on this issue imo

      Michael Gavin Johnston currently I'm supporting Andrew Yang cause I believe Universal Basic Income is something that can immediately help all Americans while Yang gets Medicare for all. Bernie's 15 minimum just doesn't cut it for me and I think we can do better with UBI
