Well now , this is not an endorsement by me for Bernie Sanders, but I can’t argue with the adjectives used in the image above. Bernie as Democrat candidate and Trump as Republican candidate have taken the US by storm in this early part of the election year of 2016. The electorate is tired of the old ways of politicians promising this or that and then after the election, it is back to the establishment way as before. The final count on Democrat vote was Sanders 60% to Hillary Clinton 38% .
During his victory speech, he stopped momentarily from his remarks to hold a “fund raiser” asking for small independent donations. He has been very critical of Mrs. Clinton’s large donations from the Wall Street crowd. Well, Bernie’s fans came through raising $6,000,000 in just a few hours ! The average amount of a pledge was $34!
I am impressed with all Bernie’s positive qualities, but am concerned at how we would pay for all of Bernie’s “Free Stuff”, single payer health care, free tuition at public colleges, and up to a 90% tax rate. My concern is seeing Venezuela, Greece and other Socialist governments and what happens when the money runs out!
I saw in India, an electorate who rebelled from the 60 years of Congress party corruption and greed . There were lines that lasted for hours with a voter turn-out of over 66% for the win by the BJP party and its leader Mr. Modi. The sleeping giant was awakened. It seems that way in America this election season. The electorate still makes a difference. Be an educated voter !
Now the point of this post was to share this amazing commercial by Bernie Sanders. One of my blogger friends says that “The US sneezes and we feel it all over the world!”
Gesundheit to you America and the world! (German for “to your health!” )
