I have quite a few friends who are advocating for Bernie Sanders. I can’t stand the man, for so many reasons.
He is pro-war. He has no problem with military intervention, anywhere in the world. He doesn’t want American boots on the ground. He just thinks we should fund more rebel groups in the area (that never backfires), continue dropping bombs, build the F-35 (he’s a significant backer), continue using drones to murder whoever the government says needs murdering, and continue economic aggression against other countries.
He wants to increase labor costs, increase investment costs, limit foreign investment, increase regulatory costs, increase the national debt, increase energy costs, limit development overseas increasing production costs, limit imports, and continue inflationary policies. The economy is going to do great!
He supports the war on drugs. He states he supports “decriminalization” for drug use. This is code for arresting people and incarcerating them in involuntary treatment programs. Either way, he’s still asserting the state has the right to violently abduct people for what they choose to do to their own bodies.
He is opposed to an individual right to self defense, and supports widespread confiscation of civilian arms. For someone who claims to be “for the People”, he sure seems to like concentrating power in the hands of the few.
He is all around opposed to individual liberty, and seems to view people as no more than components of their race, gender, or the Almighty State.
Of course, he’s still better than Clinton.
