What Bernie Sanders Reminds Me Of

CaptureCop Block posted something to their Facebook page yesterday, and it stirred up quite a controversy on the post. I scrolled down, and all you could see were comment after comment after comment of Sanders people completely flipping out. Below is the post they posted, and I’ll link to the article below as well:

Bernie Sander’s policies mean only one thing: more cops to enforce his laws, brutalize Americans and enforcing the police state. Link: http://truthvoice.com/?p=6201

And now, here are just a few of the comments that have people #FeelingTheBern:

Capture2Capture3Now, while this is fun and all, something struck a chord within me. Something feels too familiar. I feel like I’ve seen this kind of fervent enthusiasm and rage before, but where? Oh wait, that’s right!

That’s where I remember all of this coming from! Okay, now I remember. But yeah, we saw Obama speaking about a lot of the same things back when he was still Senator Obama, and you know what, him and Bernie weren’t much off, but Bernie is more extreme. But think about this: we’ve had 7 years off Obama almost, and what has resulted from it? What has 7 years of Hope and Change brought? What has 7 years of an identical message brought to the country, that’s supposed to cherish freedom and liberty?

A few, rotten things, such as:

I fail to see how the leftist liberal that Obama has been could have made things better. I fail to see how Bernie, the Socialist, will make things better. Both have wanted, and tried, to expand the government. What the people in the comments do not understand is that when you expand the government, there has to be some enforcement mechanism to be able to carry out the deeds and will of the State, and make sure it’s being applied how they want it done. There is a system that will make sure that things are going according to how they want, and that is evident in what Obama has brought to the United

Indefinite Detention? Warrant-less spying being continued from Bush under the PATRIOT Act? Killing American Citizens? Militarizing the Police? That has all happened under Obama’s watch, and he let it happen, because as I believe, he wanted it to. Don’t agree with me? Remember what I said above? The bigger the government, the bigger the enforcement state. You do not live in a world where the bigger the government, the smaller the enforcement state. You don’t live in a fantasy land. The police will not be an SJW-approved authority, and they will not be there to wipe your tears after being offended. That fantasy will never happen. They will be hard and tough, and of course, enforcing the State’s will, but under Bernie, at least they might wear a peace-sign patch on their uniform.

A law comes with the threat of force, and quite possibly, death. That’s one reason why I don’t support a bigger government. I don’t want people to be locked up, or killed, for selling loose cigarettes. I don’t want people to be beaten up for simply not responding to a question, and if people want to truly change things, then they really should care about repealing laws, not passing more.

My Thoughts On Bernie Sanders: A Living Wage

20150816_021303000_iOS

I’m sharing my thoughts on Bernie Sanders, and his platform is something I have not found a lot I can agree with. Today, I’m going through his Living Wage plank. Going through it, there’s a lot of stuff I know I’m going to have a lot of fun with, but overall, I see a lot of bad ideas, and a lot of harmful things for workers in the lower, middle, and upper class.

Let’s dive in, shall we?

My Thoughts On Bernie Sanders: Racial Justice – Economic Violence

20150814_123247000_iOSI’m sharing my thoughts on Bernie Sanders, and his platform is something I have a found a lot I can agree with. Today, I’m going through his Economic Violence plank in his Racial Justice platform. Going through it, there’s a lot of stuff I know I’m going to have a lot of fun with, but overall, I see a lot of bad ideas, and a lot of “free stuff”.

My Thoughts On Bernie Sanders: Racial Justice – Legal Violence

I’m talking about Bernie Sanders still, continuing on with my series on the guy. Today, we’re continuing on with his Racial Justice plan, but specifically, we’re going through his Legal Violence Section today. There are no concrete, specifically laid out points, so I’ll be going through the paragraphs he has, and discussing what I find he wants to do.

Let’s dive in, shall we?

My Thoughts On Bernie Sanders: Racial Justice – Political Violence

20150829_184704000_iOS

I’m talking about Bernie Sanders still, continuing on with my series on the guy. Today, we’re continuing on with his Racial Justice plan, but specifically, we’re going through his Political Violence section of that plan. I’ve read through the first part, and from what I’m seeing, it’s nothing really good, nor proposing any real solution to the problems. Merely, it furthers the problems.

So, let’s dive into the plan.

My Thoughts On Bernie Sanders: Racial Justice – Physical Justice

charleston-virginia-shootings

I’m doing a series on Bernie Sanders, and discussing his points that he’s putting forward in his campaign for the Presidency. In this post, I’ll be going over his section on Racial Justice, which is uber long. I’ll start with the “Physical Justice” portion, mainly because, looking at it, this one portion is almost as long as his “Income & Wealth Inequality” section.

Now, to give some backstory, this portion came about after he was booted off the stage by Black Lives Matter (BLM) Seattle, and took on (I believe) one of the two people who was there stealing the microphone. Nevertheless, equal scrutiny will be applied.

My Thoughts On Bernie Sanders: Creating Decent Paying Jobs

20150720_233013000_iOS

I’m talking about Bernie Sanders, in what seems to be a series of posts talking about what he wants to do, should he be elected President. In this post, I’ll be talking about what Sanders wishes to do in relation to creating jobs that pay well. My initial thoughts before reading the page is that:

  1. You don’t, like every other President, Congressman, Governor, etc… before you, create jobs. The private sector, you know, the sector he barely only spent a 1-1.5 years in, creates jobs. Government can only make conducting business harder by imposing more rules and regulations and raising the costs of business.
  2. Judging by your previous statements, about wanting more fringe benefits for workers, a higher minimum wage, and so on, Bernie isn’t going to be able to create the jobs he wants.

Remember, only after this line below will I have read. These are just some preliminary thoughts. Now, let’s dive into the real stuff.
