Presidential Candidate review: Bernie Sanders

For my second Presidential candidate review, I’ve chosen Bernie Sanders.  Why?  Because I think he’ll be easy to write about.

Now the whole “socialist” aspect of Mr. Sanders has attracted a lot of attention.  Socialism is of course directly against American values, at least, the original American values established in the Constitution.  He wants to tax the Charles Dickens out of the rich and let the poor go to college for free.

Sure it might sound nice.  But I believe people should work to earn what they get, and then keep it.  Some will be rich; some will be poor.  We can’t all be on the same level.  And we are certainly not entitled to an education!

And here, possibly the biggest reason I cannot support Sandy:


“The decision about abortion is a decision for a woman and her doctor to make, not the government. I will not allow the right wing to deny women control over their own bodies by forcing clinics to close, extending waiting periods, or inventing other methods that create de facto abortion bans. Roe v. Wade is the law of the land and must remain so.”  -Bernie Sanders

Now if you know me, you should know that I’m about as pro-life as they get.  But that’ll be another post…

To sum it up, if you want to rise to the top, if you want to get an education, if you want to break generational poverty, then you have to WORK.  And yeah, even that might not make you rich.  But guess what?  You are not entitled to ANYTHING.  It is not the government’s job to give you what you think you deserve.
