Americans need to understand, early in the presidential season, that Bernie Sanders is a philosophically linked cousin of Karl Marx. You know, the father of the Communist Manifesto. The old Soviet Union is a storybook model of Communism/Marxism. How did that all work out? Americans need to know that Sanders wants to take control of America’s corporate sector as run by the likes of job creators Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos and Larry Ellison and instead allow the federal government to control the means of production. Comrade Sanders is thinking a 70% or higher upper income tax bracket, the end of the medical insurance industry, and $15/hour minimum wage. Wal-Mart would be out of business.
America’s small business owners, along with the business titans noted above, create the majority of income-earning jobs for Americans. And not a single job creator in America would buy into the Sanders/Marxist delusions above. Sanders would take a wrecking ball to America. And the real danger is that Sanders appears to be completely devoid of any historical perspective or even basic Economics 101 knowledge. One wonders if Sanders even knows that Switzerland, Singapore and Hong Kong are 21st Century All Stars of how to run a competitive international jobs creating machine.
Has America sunk so low that she is offering voters a world-class liar or a Marxist as the probable finalists for one of our two major parties?
On the other side of the coin, the presidential candidate with the clearest understanding of how a free economy should work, Rand Paul, has been totally marginalized. None of the other Republican candidates come even close to Rand Paul. Scared yet?
Then there is Mr. Trump…
