Politics has become so expensive that it takes a lot of money even to be defeated. – Will Rogers

AMES, Iowa – Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders narrowly finished second this winter in the state’s Democratic caucuses, then left Iowa in a February snowstorm as a contender. He returned Saturday on a warm autumn day to Iowa State University as a surrogate, offering his young, fervent supporters a more difficult pitch — vote for Hillary Clinton.
Some of his devotees remain unconvinced, even those the Clinton campaign selected to speak at this Clinton campaign event.
Speaking of selling …Bernie Sanders sold his sycophants out.
According to heatstreet.com,
Emails published by WikiLeaks suggest that Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders had a secret “agreement” during the Democratic primary.
In a May 2015 email exchange, top Clinton campaign aides discussed “Sanders criticism” after Hillary’s primary opponent attacked the Clintons over their extreme wealth by suggesting that they “hustle money.”
When asked about the Clintons’ wealth during an interview with CNBC, Sanders had some harsh words:
Theoretically you can be a multibillionaire and in fact be very concerned about the issues of working people. Theoretically that’s true. When you hustle money like that, you don’t sit in restaurants like this. You sit in restaurants where you spend, I don’t know what they spend, hundreds of dollars for dinner and so forth. That’s the world you are accustomed to. And that’s the worldview that you adopt. I’m not going to condemn Hillary and Bill Clinton because they’ve made a lot of money. That type of wealth has the potential to isolate you from the reality of the world.
Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook emailed campaign chairman John Podesta to express his displeasure with Sanders’ remarks, and suggested that Sanders had violated an “agreement” of some kind between the campaigns.
“This isn’t in keep [with] the agreement,” Mook wrote. “Since we clearly have some leverage, would be good to flag this for him. I could send a signal via Welch–or did you establish a direct line [with] him?”
The “Welch” referred to here is presumably Rep. Peter Welch (D., Vt.), one of the first Democratic lawmakers to publicly endorse Sanders.
For the past 7 years, Barack Hussein Obama has been promising “Hope and change”, through his unceasing rhetoric of Class Warfare, Racial Animus, and “Sharing the Wealth”.
His promises have proven to be as empty as our pocketbooks.
Almost 95,000,000 Americans are now out of our workforce, having given up ever being able to find a job.
And, then, you have those Americans who never wanted to work for their money in the first place.
Bernie Sanders, “Evangelist” of the failed political ideology of Marxism, member of the rapidly-tanking American Political Party known as “Democrats”, basically appealed to the collegiate and “slacker” vote, the MTV Generation, still living in Mom’s Basement, who salivate over the vision of “money for nothing and their chicks for free”.
The Socialist Paradise, which Bernie Sanders offered Millennials, is nothing new.
Ask the countries of Venezuela and Greece, as they burn to the ground, their hopes and dreams piled on top of a “Democratic Socialist” Pyre of their own making.
As we enter the last two days before the most important Presidential Election in our lifetime, it would be wise for those voters who still want to “#FeelTheBern” to remember the words of a great World Leader, Sir Winston Churchill, who, as Prime Minister, led Great Britain though the Fight Against Fascism during World War II, when he said,
Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.
What Bernie’s collective hive-mind of group-thinking followers never seemed to grasp was the reality that Marxism has NEVER worked, anywhere that it has been tried.
Man’s own greed and corruption, as in the case of the old Russian Politboro, and Bernie Sanders, himself, always gets in the way of their dream for a Socialist Utopia.
That is the reason that Marxism remains a THEORY…and a failed one, at that.
The news potentially isn’t all bad for ol’ Bernie are the Democratic Party goes down in flame next Tuesday, though.
Perhaps, they will make a remake of “Back to the Future”.
He’s a dead ringer for Doc Emmett Brown.
