If you think Bernie Sanders is a hero, harm yourself. He is, in fact, a fascist with bad hair. Worse than Trump’s by the way. So Trump has that going for him. Which is nice. Aside from his tax plan which we’ve already thoroughly debunked, my biggest beef is how Sanders is selling himself. He’s telling everyone he’s “for the people.” But that is, in fact, a giant lie.
Bernie Sanders says every person who works 40 hours has the right to a “living wage”. I don’t agree. I believe you have the right to be paid an appropriately correlating amount to the value added by your services. Fast food example. Employee costs business some money. Business owner HAS to pay that amount to every employee regardless, and the company goes under. Therefore no one is paid at all because some idiot wanted to be fair. But now what?
It’s fascism for mediocrity. No one should do better than anyone else, right? Well who does that hurt the most? The really, really good employee, who should be earning more. The employee down the line who comes in early, stays late, gets every order right, takes initiative in streamlining processes. HE deserves to make, and the owner might pay him $25 an hour… whereas he would either fire the crappy one or pay him $7 an hour. But since he CAN’T, what happens? The deadbeat toking’ up in the mens stall, and the rockstar manager both make… $15 an hour. Because we will LEGISLATIVELY ensure that you are ALL the same. That’s fascism.
It’s also how robots are made. The same model, over and over and over again on an assembly line. Equality.
