Bernie Sanders has revealed that he plans to fund his socialist promise of free everything by massive new tax increases and by weaponizing the Justice Department through lawsuits. None of this comes as a surprise. His plan to tax the so-called rich is not new; it’s what his kind does.
His promises to tax the rich plays like Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 to the gullible who actually believe there is such a thing as free stuff from the government.
Sanders laid out how he purposes to pay for his agenda that without question will not only destroy American industry, but will turn America into the Cuba he is so enamored with. His website states that one part of his plan would save $70.4 trillion over 80 years and that money would be used to finance his America killing free programs. This is laughable for a plethora of reasons not least of which is because he’s talking about 80 years, i.e., nearly a century. But I digress.
Additionally, he has doubled down on his plan to provide college tuition for every level of higher education for everyone and he promises to forgive all student loan debt over the next decade. The result of this would mean teachers would ostensibly be forced to work for pittance. It also means that institutions would fall into a state of decay and the advancement of new health cures and improved technology would stall. And before some bernie-ite says that isn’t true, I ask how many new medical and technological advancements have come out of Cuba since Castro took over. Just as with his hero Castro, if Sanders is successful higher education will be reduced to a handful of government operated schools.
That said however, it’s his plan to use lawsuits that should make even the most delusional-minded individuals question his sanity. (See: Bernie Sanders Says ‘Major Plans’ To Be Funded In Part New Taxes, lawsuits; FoxNews; February 24, 2020)
Sanders maintains that he would instruct the Justice Department to sue the fossil fuel industry, the banking industry and other major corporations and speculators are the incoherent hebephrenic ramblings of a certified mad man.
Never mind that our fossil fuel industry has never produced fewer pollutants and continues to get even cleaner. He’s going to sue them simply because he is anti-fossil fuel.
His promised lawsuits against the fossil fuel industry would drive the cost of fuel out of reach for even the highest middle class wage earners. I personally know several people who live in Florida but commute weekly to their jobs in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and Ohio via commercial airlines. Sanders’ assault on fossil fuel would drive the cost of jet fuel into the stratosphere.
A good friend lives in Southern Virginia but works in New York City. Even though he telecommutes, he must still drive to New York several days each month. Astronomical fuel costs would deliver a huge blow to his income after expenses. Massive numbers of people have moved from New Jersey to Pennsylvania to escape that State’s oppressive tax climate, and now commute daily to their jobs in Northern New Jersey and New York City. Increased fuel prices and tolls would cripple their ability to live in a less expensive State, which in turn would cost their adopted new State tax dollars.
The cost of consumer goods and food would increase exponentially because of the resultant astronomical cost of fuel for the trucks that transport same. Right now it costs approximately $1,200 to $1,500 to fill the tanks of tractor trailers. Sanders’ assault on the fossil fuel industry would triple the cost as a lowball guesstimate. His crazed plan would lead to massive unemployment for delivery corporations such as FedEx and UPS because the cost of transporting overnight and ground transportation would simply be too much for the majority of people and small businesses to afford.
The cost of daily public transportation would make lower middle class and lower class families virtually prisoners in their own inner city neighborhoods. The price of goods and services for inner city neighborhoods that are already higher than in the suburbs based upon numerous factors including crime, would increase poverty and government dependency.
His plans to abuse big businesses with draconian lawsuits and tax increases for daring to be successful would lead to a mass exodus of American business to other countries. These would include the very businesses that President Trump has been so successful in bringing back to America.
At that point it really would take the magic wand Obama sarcastically spoke about, to bring jobs back – unless Sanders decided to empower the government to seize businesses under the guise of a national emergency so as to prevent them from leaving the country.
There’s a reason that Wall Street and the banking industry, that have faithfully financially underwritten the Democrat Party, have made it clear their wallets were closed to Sanders and “the almost Indian” Liz Warren.
Sanders promises of creating a socialist utopia would result in a dystopian government-dependent society like Cuba and Venezuela.
Some may think what I am saying is implausible but that is because they have bought the fantasy of what life is like under total government rule. That misguided belief is because said persons have not talked with Cubans who fled Castro or any of the many legal immigrants who fled Communism. They’ve listened to anarchist teachers and professors promote this damnable political folly.
Under socialism the government runs out of other people’s money very quickly. And when government runs out of the people’s money, the fantasy that Socialism is a desirable construct is fully revealed for the nightmare it is.
Sanders has never worked a day in worthless life. He became a socialist politician because it ensured he would never have to work a day in his miserable life. Being a politician isn’t a job. It’s supposed to be a service. America should never have succumbed to Erebusic political myiasis and their belief that political office is a paid career for a privileged few. Politicians do not work; they suck off the udders of public dependence. They pimp and prostitute favors to the highest bidders, which is where lobbyists come into play, including those representing the likes of the Moslem Brotherhood.
The fact that Sanders may win the Democrat nomination is an indictment of the people supporting him. Their belief in the agitprop he is spewing leads them to believe that like Icarus, they can fly high and not have their wings melt, the result being they will suffer a similar end.
