A rich socialist holding assets and making $174,000 per year in salary when the average American makes $50,000 or less is demonizing the rich – only in America.

    Bernie Sanders is absolutely right, for a large number of reasons, but one of which is our crumbling infrastructure in this country that we need to start focusing on and fixing

    Bernie will “make america Greece again.” It’s embarrasing to think that only 25 years after the USSR (United Soviet SOCIALIST Republic) that america is already on its way to socialism and then to communism or marxism (what ever you want to call it). Bernie stands for most of the same concepts that have been tried and had failed in numerous communist countries not very long ago. Examples of where socialism gets you: Greece and Venezuela.
