Bernie Sanders, our favorite socialist senator and only socialist senator but still our favorite anyway, has a terrific new economic plan to save America, and it's so crazy it just might work! Except, of course, that it will never work, because sadly, our Senate is filled with a whole bunch of senators who are not Bernie Sanders, and do not ask the kinds of questions he asks, such as, for example:
I&#039;m ordering my bumper sticker today.
&ldquo;The upper crust is a bunch of crumbs held together by a lot of dough&rdquo;
<i>~ Fibber McGee and Molly,</i> 1945
Also too, a lot of graft and corruption is deeply ingrained into the unwritten but commonly-understood &quot;[PRC] way of doing business.&quot;
There&#039;s plenty to choose from on that buffet. It all represents the kind of boost that the country has been starved of for over 40 years.
So how did we get the other but not the one?
I&#039;m not into organ meats, but I make a mean roast.
Sanders is certifiably crazy.
False. There are only two political movements: Anarchism, and Statism. One approves of the use of violence, the first does not. As nice as Bernie's plan sounds, if the rich don't pay those taxes, the government comes in and takes it by force. Anyone who has seen the IRS in action knows that if you don't comply, it is lethal force. Come up with a form of government that has no taxes and is voluntary and you don't have a government. Wait... that sounds perfect. Now all the people who want to argue with me about "but who will make sure the meat is safe?!" can now hit reply.
Well gee, why not throw in a free car too, and blowjobs! That's the ticket!

False choice. From the simple minded comes the simple.
That's right. You'd have to be crazy to want to be president of a stupid country filled with stupid people.
You're not making sense. In any economic model Republicans have to pay for blowjobs. And how could workers who make a decent living wage make cars for free?
Oddly I suspect that many of this ideals would actually be popular. But why would the democratic party do that when the could try to be republicans light?
Eating the rich? Would that dish be called Soylent Red?
because those ideas would NOT be popular with the people who own the democratic politicians
Coincidentally, this is the same program that has made China the largest economy in 30 years of growth.
