Bernie's Supporters on Whether he's Realistic: 'I don't know or care...'
The term "low information voter" gets thrown around a lot these days, especially when you see who the most popular candidates are. In the case of Bernie Sanders, the Washington Post says we can't afford him. The Huffington Post says we can't afford him. Hell, even Rob Lowe says we can't afford him.
I mean, even when adjusted for inflation, I'm quite certain 18 TRILLION dollars is a lot of money.
And it's not that Bernie Sanders supporters don't think his plans are realistic. It's that they simply don't care.
Hillary Clinton says Bernie Sanders is "making promises he can't keep" - but his supporters in Nevada say they care more about "bold ideas" than practical politics.
The BBC went to a Sanders rally in Henderson near Las Vegas to ask Bernie's followers if his plans - such as free college tuition and universal healthcare are realistic - and if that's important to them.
Of course by now we know how Nevada worked out, with Bernie losing to the slightly more realistic Hillary Clinton. But this is where leftism is now. Promise people free stuff, and then when they vote for you, keep promising them free stuff and hope that they don't notice they didn't get the other free stuff you promised them. It's been working so far.
The following are actual quotes from the video. When asked if Bernie Sanders' plans were realistic, these people responded with...
I guess I don't care. Because you can't really get results if you don't try.... Wanting to try free tuition in public universities is not unrealistic.
Riiiight. Only one problem with that.
Okay, moving on to some other highlights:
I'm okay with him not being so realistic.
We're allowed to believe in a dream. And the dream that Bernie stands for may not be real within my generation. But i believe that it's going to be real some day.
If there are people in congress not pushing through bills that we want to see pushed through. Then they need to find new jobs.
We have to go out there and we have to vote for more liberal people from the house and the representative houses and the senate and get more left-wingers in there...
The scary part in all of this? These people (many of whom are no doubt, non-contributing losers) will soon outnumber the creators, business owners and innovators in this country. Soon, it's just a matter of them voting to take your stuff. Who cares if that's an unrealistic long-term plan? Certainly not them. They are but mere parasites devouring the host.
The host? Well that's you. Hosts don't have rights. They take, you give. That's the rules, don't you know. If you refuse to play along? Well, they'll just take it at gun-point. That's what socialism is.
Welcome to the new America. As far as the math of Bernie Sanders' plan? Well we added that up a long time ago. Share this with your friends.
