America On The Brink


Well, it looks like the fight for the democrat nominee is coming down to two people, socialist Bernie Sanders and Globalist Mike Bloomberg. Both are dangerous for America, particularly Bernie.

Bernie has promised to forgive all student loans, which currently stands at over $1.3 trillion.

Bernie has promised Medicare For All, but the Urban Institute has projected it would cost $34 trillion beyond current federal healthcare expenses to fund the single-payer plan in the first decade of operation.

Bernie has signed on to the Green New Deal. Studies have shown that the cost of the Green New Deal would be around $93 trillion.

These lib plans would destroy the economy of the country. Maybe that’s their plan in the first place, to destroy the current system and replace it with their socialist system like the Nazis did in Germany, The government would take over thousands of businesses, raise our taxes, lay off people and have a wealth tax to redistribute our hard-earned money.

There are many other cradle-to-grave provisos we could go into, but let’s just deal with the $128.3 trillion it would require to finance the promises we have so far.

Recently country music singer and musician Charlie Daniels commented on Bernie’s plans. “Just to realize the enormity of the numbers we are dealing with, the $93 trillion for the Green New Deal alone would translate into $600,000 for every household in America.

Of course, Bernie tells us that the rich would “pay their fair share” to cover the utopian socialist society he is proposing, but think about this: If you confiscated, not taxed a portion, but took the entire fortunes of the 20 richest people in America it would amount to under $1.1 trillion, probably enough to finance Bernie’s Shangri-La for a few days.

The entire nation now takes in about $4 trillion a year, goes further into debt every year, and we now already have a national debt of $23 trillion.

So, after the super-rich have contributed their “fair share” and there is about a $20 trillion per annum shortfall, where do the eyes of the politicians turn?

The tax rate goes into an upward spiral with tax brackets falling lower and lower and tax rates going higher and higher until EVERYBODY is paying 60 percent of their income to Internal Revenue.

And still, there is a shortfall of several trillion dollars.

And the truth of the matter is that the numbers will never reconcile; it is impossible to service the kind of debt Bernie Sanders’ socialist programs would accumulate. “

As Margaret Thatcher once said, “Socialism is fine until you run out of other people’s money.”

Bernie’s policies are dangerous. He said people will be laid off and bread lines are not that bad. What???? Just ask anyone who comes here from a communist country and they will tell you the horrors of communism. People come here from those countries for a better life.

Radical Dems say we should follow countries like Cuba and  Venezuela.  Are they crazy? Maybe they should go live there then. I don’t see any of them leaving here. When you give up your freedoms it’s all over.

Right now the economy is doing well for all American’s under Trump and unemployment is the lowest in 50 years and we are energy independent for the first time in 70 years with gas prices at an all-time low.’

The media is in full panic mode because of the list of weak candidates and they feel they don’t have the numbers who can beat Trump. How right they are.
