Sanders Socialism: Worse Than Savagery

It just keeps getting better and better: “Bernie Sanders unexpectedly released a fact-sheet Monday night explaining that he’d pay for his sweeping new government programs through new taxes and massive lawsuits against the fossil fuel industry, as well as by slashing spending on the military, among other methods.” [Fox News]

In other words: He’s going to make the economy stronger by taxing away prosperity and impairing your ability to drive a car, fly in a plane, heat/ac your house, or store your food.

Savages and primitives make more sense. They’re behind the times, but at least they aim for progress. Sanders and socialism aim for destruction. And they do so in the name of humanity and kindness. They claim that poor is cool, so long as we’re all equally poor; but they have no intention of living in poverty themselves.

The kind of people prepared to accept such morally and economically inverted terms have got really, really big issues.
