“To anyone saying that Bernie supporters are “freeloaders” and “socialist commies”, I have to say that I’d much rather see my tax money go to my family, friends, and neighbors than a CEO that is trying to buy his 4th Ferrari, or for the military to spend $100 million dollars on an aircraft that they will never use, or for corporations to make record profits while their employees live on food stamps.

On average, people pay $300/mo on insurance and you still have to pay a copay, with universal healthcare, your taxes would increase by an average of $35/mo with no copay. Insurance companies would like you to think that the reason your premium is so high is because of government regulations, so then why are they making record profits?

I don’t understand why so many people are totally okay with the wealthy getting welfare, but are up in arms when an average citizen is just trying to put food on the table and a roof over their heads. Why are the poor called freeloaders, but the wealthy are praised?

If hard work was the only thing that one needed to do in order to become rich, Paris Hilton would be homeless and Nikola Tesla would not have died impoverished and in debt. Farmers, teachers, construction workers, plumbers, coal miners, police officers, firefighters, nurses, etc., etc., would all live in mansions.

If ingenuity would be the only thing one would need in order to have a successful product, we would have Tucker cars still on the road, but unchecked corporate greed has created monopolies that will snuff out anyone that they see as a threat.

Bernie’s policies will still make people work hard, he is just going to try his hardest to get rid of corporate greed, make it easier for Mom and Pop stores to succeed, and to rebuild the middle class. His policies will not fault those that succeed, but will allow for more people to succeed, not just those that were born into money.

If creating a country that would allow the ease of the “American Dream” to come true is un-American, then so be it, but I refuse to fight for the 1%.”

From the post by Kyle May on Bernie Sanders Facebook Page : *DISCLAIMER* Not my intellectual work, I wish I remembered where I saved it from today, but I’m glad I could get his message across to you all! Sometimes it is hard to effectively describe what we believe.


“The United States has been at war with radical Islamist terrorism for at least 35 years,” writes the former Speaker of the House of Representatives Newt Gingrich in a column printed in today’s Wall Street Journal, “starting with the November 1979 Iranian seizure of the US Embassy in Tehran and taking 52 hostages. Of course, he fails to mention that it was the action of the US government in 1953 that gave birth to and incubated the hatred for the West.

Mohammad Mosaddegh

Democratically elected PM or Iran, Mohammad Mosaddegh, ousted by the CIA in 1953.

In 1953, the CIA removed a democratically elected Prime Minister of Iran and instated the Shah, effectively taking the entire Iranian citizenry hostage. The Shah was so brutal to his people that he became known as “the Bloody Shah,’ and the US came to be known as “The Great Satan” for installing him. Somehow we always seem to forget that little detail when we paint the Islamists as terrorists – as if they simply hate Christians so much that they target the West.

Our leaders like to pretend this enmity sprung from a vacuum instead of our meddling in the affairs of the Middle East.

Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi

And what led us to to depose a democratically elected leader (Mohammad_Mosaddegh ) and present the Iranians with a violent tyrant? The British had assured us that the Shah would be sympathetic to our oil interests in Iran.
Gingrich is worried that we are losing the war on terrorism, and outlines 7 points of inquiry in which we must study our enemy, that we must come to understand “the deep roots of Islamist beliefs.” But he never suggests that we recall our own role in its creation.

Heaven forbid we should ever take responsibility for our own role in the war Gingrich says we are losing.
