Bernie Sanders is on fire for several reasons:
1 – Even though Bernie Sanders is the ultimate INSIDER, since he’s been on a public payroll of one type or another for his entire working life, he’s seen by the LEFT and the people whose greatest ambition is to take from others . . . as the prerequisite OUTSIDER.
2 – He HATES Big money, especially the Banks and Wall Street who use their BIG MONEY to buy and sell politicians. But so do Conservatives.
3 – He seems to hate people who actually create jobs and then have the audacity to enjoy the fruit of their LABOR and RISK. He likes the TAKERS far more than the MAKERS.
4 – Even though Bernie doesn’t have a CLUE as to what he’s talking about concerning the environment, same as the vast majority of environmental fanatics are equally ignorant . . . THE TREE HUGGERS LOVE THE CLIMATE CHANGE BS, and then complain when there are no jobs, poor paying jobs, and sky rocketing prices driven through the roof, because of unaffordable energy.
5 – Sanders POUNDS THE DRUM OF ANTI-RACISM in America, as if the USA is awash in Jim Crow Laws, where Blacks still have to ride at the back of the Bus.
I guess no one told Bernie that the President of the USA is Black, and so are a huge number within his cabinet, as also are his CLOSEST ADVISORS.
In essence, the real Power Brokers aligned with the White House seem to be heavily skewed to Black Americans. Maybe White Americans should start yelling Racism?
And what about Black Americans who are incredibly successful in Private Business, Education, Sports, Entertainment, Sciences, Medicine . . . ETCETERA? Did no one send them the Sanders MEMO that they are discriminated against in the USA?
7 – Then there’s FREE Stuff for Students, FREE Stuff for people who don’t want to work, FREE Stuff for people in other countries . . . as a matter of fact, under a Bernie Sanders Presidency, there will be so much FREE Stuff to go around, that there will be no need to work for anything.
8 – And as far as Bernie is concerned, the VAST MAJORITY OF BLACK PEOPLE behind bars are behind bars because they’re BLACK PEOPLE, not because they might all be guilty of . . . NAME THAT CRIME.
After the first Democrat Debate, a friend of mine, who is very politically astute, wrote Bernie Sanders Off, as the Weird Uncle no one pays no attention to at family get-togethers.
But, I thought otherwise, when I saw and heard his passion, and witnessed the audience who were fully engaged with Uncle Bernie and what he said.
What I saw in Bernie Sanders, was a man we should all be paying close and careful attention to, especially Hillary Clinton, who too wrote him off as a political distraction to provide the sideshow to Clinton’s Inevitable Road to the White House.
1 – In a different way . . . and for different reasons, the LEFT are also fed-up with the BS of the Democrats, as much as the RIGHT is fed up with the Republicans and RINOS.
2 – Even though Bernie is full of beans, he is 100% sincere in what he believes, and in what he says and supports, which means a great deal to a whole lot of the people.
3 – AND THEN THERE’S HILLARY CLINTON, who is an unabashed LIAR and HYPOCRITE OF THE HIGHEST ORDER, who is so far up the REAR-ENDS of the BIGGEST BANKS AND WALL STREET INVESTMENT HOUSES, that I can’t believe she can still breathe fresh air.
And no one can forget that the Sword of Damocles . . . in the name of EMAILS and Benghazi is hanging perilously close to her head, on a string’s depth of strength.
But . . . for all the people who believe that Bernie is the REAL DEAL, and totally OPEN & HONEST – DON’T BE SO SURE.
When Bernie was giving his EMOTIONAL tale during has Victory Speech, of how his parents came from Poland, who were poor and lived in a three-room rent controlled apartment with his brother, whose parents would be looking down from Heaven, knowing how true the American Dream really is, that their son, the product of Polish Immigrants, is campaigning to become the President of the United States of America.
WHAT BERNIE FORGOT TO INCLUDE . . . was that his JEWISH Parents would have been deliriously happy in the knowledge, that coming from Poland, which was an anti-Semitic nation, where Jews lived in FEAR of Pogroms, disenfranchisement, and worse . . . they came to the USA for their Children to grow as JEWS, being SAFE, EQUAL AND FREE in America.
I guess Bernie was somewhat embarrassed to speak of his Jewish Parents and his Jewish Heritage. Or maybe that’s simply a bad LEFTIST talking point.
Trump’s New Hampshire Victory was nothing short of stunning. And if he shows nearly as well in South Carolina – I imagine it will be all over but the CHEERING for Trump.
And if and when that happens . . . IT WILL BE TIME TO CIRCLE THE WAGONS and do whatever we can to support Trump to campaign against whichever LOSER the Democrats will put up against him.
But in the meantime . . . I was also impressed with the New Hampshire finish of Ted Cruz, and am still hoping for his victory.
PS – Trump and others blamed dirty politics on Cruz for Ben Carson’s defeat in Iowa, which I thought was an unfair criticism on Cruz. And now, that we can see from the New Hampshire results, where Carson received ONLY 2% of the votes, there is no one to blame but Carson.
I like Carson, and think he is indeed a fine human being with good ideas, but in this field of sharks, he simply couldn’t hold his own. And that’s what campaigning is all about.
And as upset as I am with how Christie, who I NEVER LIKED for a ton of good reasons . . . who mercilessly beat up on Rubio in the last debate, Christie got his comeuppance for being a Blowhard and Bully, and Rubio got what he deserved for not fighting back in a way you’d expect from someone who wants to be the Commander-In-Chief.
It is indeed a really tough fight . . . and only the toughest should win.
