Socialism has never worked. There is no denying this because everywhere it has been tried it has failed. One needs look no further than Venezuela to see a modern day collapse of a socialist system, the kind of system that Bernie Sanders wants in our country.
Bernie’s supporters don’t understand this. They believe that socialism has failed because no one has ever done it right and they believe Bernie is the guy who can do it the right way.
The reality is these people have no clue. They hear the words free stuff and they are all in (gimmiedats) and they really do not care that the “free” stuff they get has to be paid for by people who work and earn. The money they earn is confiscated by the government and redistributed. These people do not care until one day they are the earners being pilfered.
It is really strange they don’t understand this because they are seeing it and complaining about it every day. They are even getting aggressive over it.
What is it they see?
Bernie has run a pretty good campaign and has a string of wins in state primary elections. Hillary recently broke the string with a win in Kentucky but Bernie ran off an impressive string. Even though he did he earned very few delegates and Hillary, in some cases, got more than he did.
The Democrats have a system where they employ super delegates. These are party faithful and special folks who are not bound to vote for anyone. This system is in place to keep the people from actually selecting the Democrat candidate. The people get to vote and think they are making a difference but the super delegates get to make sure the pick is the person the establishment wants.
So what has happened is that Bernie is winning and he and Hillary are splitting delegates but the super delegates came out long ago in favor of Hillary so she is well ahead of Bernie and close to clinching despite all of Bernie’s hard work and despite Bernie winning a lot of states.
You see, Bernie and his supporters are victims of the socialist philosophy. He and his supporters work hard and earn delegates only to have the super delegates and thus victory go to Hillary.
He works for it and she gets it, just as it is in a socialist society.
His people will complain about the process but they are only victims of the very thing they want to impose on the rest of us.
Yeah baby, feel the burn…..
Never surrender, never submit.
