Bernie Sanders needs to go back to the loonie bin — or perhaps Venezuela. Lots of socialists there. A millionaire with 3 homes who has never worked a day in his life but has nothing good to say about the country. This whole socialism thing is demolishing the Democratic Party, which is a shame. The Republicans are going to cream them, which is kind of scary that the Republican Party will have unfettered power in Washington.
Would be nice to have a new, third party that took the better, more practical ideas of the two established parties. Would love to see a flat tax imposed on all corporations, for instance, so that you don’t have billion dollar companies paying nothing because they have an army of tax attorneys gaming the system. A one-page tax code for corporations — only tax attorneys and corporate board rooms would object. And some kind of fiscal responsibility in the federal government that prevents you from perennially spending way more than you take in. A family can’t do that — why should the government? At some point in the future, that house of cards is going to come crashing down — that crisis is going to be one for the record books. Hopefully I’ll be long gone — what happens when your government itself is declared bankrupt? I don’t want to know.
But a new third-party — that’s probably just a pipedream. So the country will just lurch along as usual, until the next crisis.
