There has been much said about Bernie Sanders and his supporters as to their level of intelligence and their understanding of how the American government and our economy actually work. I have noticed that the vast majority of Sanders supporters have no idea of how our government works and display a complete inability to understand even the most rational argument about why Sanders will not be able to give them the “free shit” that these miscreants seem to need to survive yet another day in their “point and click” existence.
The rabid support of Bernie Sanders by his supporters is incredibly misguided. I began to simply focus on the arguments from the Sanders supporters themselves. Many Sanders supporters are quite comical and seem to focus not on the ample supply of examples of the failure of socialism globally, but more importantly, why Sanders will be different.
I must admit that I have not ever seen a group of people so largely disconnected with the process of government and the law of government, yet so vehemently supportive of a political candidate. It’s frightening to me that people can be blindly throwing themselves into the idea of socialism being a better way of living for the people of the United States.
When faced with the obvious examples like Venezuela and Brazil and the abject failure of socialism there, they cite Canada, Switzerland and Denmark. Others argue that a simple Google search of those countries and their economies shows that not all is well in these countries. My argument is that these countries have populations of 60 million or less and closely monitor who comes into and out of their countries, as well as keeping a lid on any outsiders getting into the country simply to exploit the system.
The fact that America has more than 40 million illegal aliens living in the country that have at this point completely compromised our social services programs and are stripping away the tax dollars at an alarming rate is one of the various reasons socialism will never work in America.
But then I began to look at the real cause of how so many can support socialism itself and the answer became quite obvious.
The first is poor parenting. WIthout fail, anytime I approach a Sanders supporter with logic, I get shouted down and told how stupid I am. Most Sanders supporters behave like petulant children. You see it all over social media. Sanders supporters launching into full blown tirades and eventual tantrums. If you think for one minute that these individuals don’t behave that way every time they hear the word “no” then you are as stupid as they are. These are the Sanders supporters that grew up hearing “Every kid is a winner, and Everyone gets a trophy” from their parents and mentors.
The second is that these college students routinely mistake education with actual intelligence. I have had many one way conversations with various college students and grads that think that their degree trumps my intelligence and experiences with politics. Without knowing anything about me or my own background, they launch into 5 minute diatribes that usually end by insulting my intelligence.
A college degree used to mean something. Now all it means is that you are easily trained. Nothing more. In fact most people coming out of college don’t even get a job in the field that they majored in.
Which brings me to my contention as to why Bernie Sanders is so wildly popular with the American youth. The abject failure of the educational system itself. Face it. We have an entire generation of kids that grew up spoiled rotten, in many instances never hearing the word “no” and getting a poor education from the very system which they now so vehemently support.
I consider Bernie Sanders supporters to be the absolute end result of the last 40 years of liberal control of education by democrats, and the IRONY here is now they are so dumbed down by Democrats that they have become socialists that won’t support the democrat candidate because they consider them too conservative.
I offer Bernie Sanders supporters as living proof that liberalism doesn’t work. In fact its like a horrible experiment with the American youth gone awry. A Democratic party political failure on display for the world to see.
Its funny to see Hillary Clinton’s reaction to the Bernie Sanders issue. Even funnier when the media asks Hillary to explain it. She knows why its happening. But she refuses to answer, simply explaining it away as an aberration that will eventually go away. Bad new Hillary. You and your husband helped to create Bernie Sanders, and he ain’t going anywhere. Millennials are a direct result of Bill Clinton’s “Whole Learning method of education, which was an absolute disaster. Bill and Hillary helped take a once shining college system into a place where a person can major in collecting beer cans.
It’s been quite entertaining to watch the Sanders Supporters slugging it out on social media all day. To see so many people so inaccurately recite American history is pretty damn funny. Alas, I have no choice but to say I can’t wait for the #FeelTheBern supporters to actually start earning a living and paying taxes. Only then will they realize how wrong they were for supporting Bernie Sanders.
