Who could be shocked that a socialist would spend most of his life as a moocher? Well that’s exactly what Bernie Sanders has done.
Sanders spent most of his life as an angry radical and agitator who never accomplished much of anything. And yet now he thinks he deserves the power to run your life and your finances — “We will raise taxes;” he confirmed Monday, “yes, we will.”
One of his first jobs was registering people for food stamps, and it was all downhill from there.
Sanders took his first bride to live in a maple sugar shack with a dirt floor, and she soon left him. Penniless, he went on unemployment. Then he had a child out of wedlock. Desperate, he tried carpentry but could barely sink a nail. “He was a shi**y carpenter,” a friend told Politico Magazine. “His carpentry was not going to support him, and didn’t.”
Then he tried his hand freelancing for leftist rags, writing about “masturbation and rape” and other crudities for $50 a story. He drove around in a rusted-out, Bondo-covered VW bug with no working windshield wipers. Friends said he was “always poor” and his “electricity was turned off a lot.” They described him as a slob who kept a messy apartment — and this is what his friends had to say about him.
And now Bernie is a United States senator and on the verge of being the front runner for the Democratic presidential nomination.
Is really no indication Bernie has changed. He still mooching off of taxpayers and his presidential campaign is mooching off the billionaire 1%ers who he rails against with every breath.
Only Democrats and their media enablers could dream up a candidate like this and then criticize successful people like Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Ben Carson, were pretty much any of the Republican presidential field.
But then again they are Democrats and as we’ve said before if Democrats didn’t have double standards wouldn’t have any.
