Sen. Bernie Sanders is the King of Free Stuff. But of course, nothing is for free, as any child – except the children loving on Bernie – can tell you.
Sanders wants to soak the rich, Wall Street, and other oppressive rich people. But there’s only so much of that you can do before the rich are no longer the rich, don’t care about getting rich, start firing lots of people, or move to the Cayman Islands. Or before Wall Street becomes just another alley on the Lower East Side.
Because Bernie, to give you free stuff, he will have to take your money away and give it back to you as he sees fit. He has to tax the middle class, and even, the lower classes.
Check out this chart. If you are a middle class worker earning making close to $60,000 a year, you lose $137 out of your paycheck under Sanders if you are paid every two weeks, according to a study by the Tax Foundation.
President Obama, having acclimated us to Leftism, has paved the way for a radical Socialist to actually get close to the presidency. And remember, with Socialists, the ends are so wonderful, that the means are always justified.
Many of on the right like to root for Sanders over Hillary because they detest her so much. But the thought of a true Socialist confiscating your money and property should outweigh the pleasure of watching Clinton go down to a raving grandpa. Because a hard Leftist like Sanders should not be permitted anywhere near the presidency, and that includes betting the Democratic nomination.
