The Prospects of President Bernie Sanders
By Todd Strandberg
I had already planned to write this article over the likelihood of Bernie Sanders having a strong show, winning the Iowa Caucuses. When I learned from the internet that the whole event was turning into a fiasco, I turned on CNN and laughed for Two hours straight. The next days, the clown-car Iowa Democrat party finally said Sanders had more votes than the other candidates.
It is absolute insanity to have a man who is a Communist being the front-runner of a major party. Sanders and the press like to use the soft label of socialist, but his history shows that he is a “card- carrying” commie. Bernie admitted He didn’t mind being called ‘A Communist’ during a 1972 Run for Governor of Vermont. After all, this is a man who honeymooned in the Soviet Union back in 1988.
The odd quality that draws people to him is that he is consistent with his views. He claims he still has the same political beliefs he’s had since 1963. His 1976 call for the nationalization of most major industries still stands. “I favor the public ownership of utilities, banks and major industries,” Sanders said in one interview with the Burlington Free Press. He also proposed a 100% income tax on the highest income earners in America.
It’s amazing that the Stock Market did not drop 800 points the day after he and three other leftists made a strong showing in Iowa. If Sanders is going to have a 30% rise of taxes on companies and stockholders, the value of these holders should be nearly cut in half. If his climate-change regulation drives all the oil companies into bankruptcy, 30% of zero equals zero.
What drives the young people to his rallies is the promise of goodies. Sanders promises the wiping out of student loan debts and free medical care for all. We’ll just add that 1.4 trillion of student loan debt to our federal tab of 23.2 trillion. The medical bills will run free until the world cuts us off by refusing to buy our Treasury IOUs.
The general image of socialism is people joining together to share equally with each other in love. In reality, this movement naturally draws people who are sadists. History teaches us that because socialism requires the use of force, the greatest human atrocities ever committed have been inflicted by socialist governments. Out of the graves of 145 million people will come the cry that socialism is a lie:
70 million killed in China
60 million killed in USSR
4 million killed in Cambodia
5 million killed in North Korea
1 million killed in Yugoslavia
1 million killed in Ethiopia
1 million killed in Indonesia
800,000 killed in Rwanda
The Sanders campaign organization is full of people who would spark revolutionary acts in a moment’s notice. In South Carolina, Project Veritas provided the following highlights of things that Sanders campaign field organizer Mason Baird allegedly said:
“I’ve canvassed with someone who’s an anarchist, and with someone who’s a Marxist-Leninist. So, we attract radical, truly radical people in the campaign … obviously that’s not outward-facing.”
“We would need a federal government and a labor movement that is working together to strip power away from the capitalists and preferably directing that violence towards property.”
“It would, it’s gonna take, you know, it’s gonna take militancy … like a militant labor movement that’s willing to … strike, and if necessary, you know, just destroy property and things like that.”
“… after we abolish landlords, we don’t have to kill them …”
I ask myself why Bernie Sanders is not being asked tough questions about his basic views, and I know they are never going to be challenged. The demonic forces that protect him turn people away from a logic question like: If you tax away 100% of someone’s income, why would they continue to work? Never mind that Bernie’s dangerous Communist ideas failed dozens of times in the past 20 years, people want to give them a fresh try.
The Sanders organization has already said that if Bernie should win the Presidency, they would hit the ground running with dozens of presidential executive orders. Many of these will be unconstitutional. Some are so radical in nature, they would do profound damage to America before they could be reversed. Since Sanders said he would move to open the border to all comers, we would have millions of people pouring into the nation before the Supreme Court could restore order.
I hope that if Sanders is in a face-off with Trump, he gets absolutely creamed in the November election. The average citizen has become so removed from Godly wisdom that it is possible for our nation to vote in a Communist. Since the Bible promises the enemies of God a brief window of victory, the rapture may occur right before the election, which would be fitting of the Lord to leave the left with a hollow victory.
