Can you believe the audacity of Sen. Bernie Sanders as he tried to push a lie that the socialist system used in the Soviet Union and Venezuela didn’t fail? This is what happens when someone wants to win so badly, they will throw out the kitchen sink with the bath water to win somebody’s vote.
You need to do a little research and educate yourself regarding the difference between democratic socialism and dictatorships. But then, you likely already understand the difference and are just peddling this fear mongering false message to those who are ignorant — what a disgusting betrayal of public trust.
Sanders: Obviously, Soviet Union was an authoritarian society with no democratic rights, and if you know history, you know the democratic socialists fought and stood up against that. You can look at what existed in the Soviet Union and Venezuela, that is not what I’m talking about at all.”
Socialism and communism have no place in this country, and it has a perfect record. It has failed 100% of the time it is tried. We are the Constitutional Republic, period!
What scares me is that some have no knowledge of past and current world situations which will believe it just because “The Bern” said so. As the Soviet Union tried socialism first, shouldn’t that be the prime example of failure? Do us all a favor: read a history book sometime.
This is just a tactic to hold office, promote himself, and distract his opponents, and his arguments are an embarrassment. As a socialist enthusiast, why has Bernie stayed in the United States all his life? The hypocrite loves his capitalist goodies too much, I guess.
Who decides what each person’s share is? Bernie? Does that mean I get one of his houses and a fat bank account with deposits from him? He does have so much more than me! Why would you not look at these countries and know socialism and communism do not work? This is not what our country stands for, and it never will! There is no such thing as a free ride. Saying the younger generation will have less? Every parent prays their child will have it better than them.
Oh and I remember East Germany and Russia and the people standing in bread lines the horrible stories when people managed to escape of life there and how they escaped and why! It’s true if we haven’t learned from history, we are bound to repeat it. We need to educate people because those that think this horror is a good idea don’t know what they lose and that the Bernies of the world do not care about America or the citizens!
People in the U.S. should take heed that the Venezuelans are powerless against the Venezuelan military because the people’s right to own guns have been taken away. We must stay strong and protect our constitutional rights to bear arms and to have free speech.
The left is bribing the people to get votes, whether it’s reparations, universal basic income, or free for all medical coverage. This is how Republics end — when a majority vote for gifts from the Treasury and politicians become the drug dealer selling eventual economic death and malaise for short term pleasure.
