Sanders the Sincere

bernie sanders

Every time I see and hear Bernie Sanders I cringe, thinking how totally humiliated I’d be to think of America as he does, to ignore the self reliance and ability to get ahead that made Americans great and which he has ignored all these years.  Imagine anybody promising the world to all Americans knowing he can’t pay for it?  And Americans buying it?   (the image includes American flags and probably shouldn’t)

What I hear often is “I don’t like the candidates…at least Bernie Sanders is SINCERE and hasn’t changed his opinions.”

I believe Hitler was probably very sincere, too.*   Don’t you?  And because Sanders hasn’t changed opinions means he probably hasn’t grown, doesn’t it?  (*UPDATE: what I wanted to make sure about in this update is that I’m definitely not comparing Sanders to Hitler!…I am making my point that one can be sincere about pretty terrible things…and so sincerity is no reason to consider voting for someone)

What do you think of him?

    BS is a self-radicalized delusional gringewort, a tired old early 20th century crusader in a 21st century political milieu. He’s the poster child for Maggie’s one-liner about the basic flaw in socialism.

    The problem is not so much BS, which he is so fond of spewing, but the alternatives: a career felon, a vanity blowhard, and a use-’em-and-lose-’em cubanadian for whom all unite in proclaiming distaste.

    That closing line by Chuck Heston in Planet of the Apes comes to mind:

    The sickest aspect of the very sick comparisons to our Lord and Savior is that those doing the comparing don’t believe in Jesus and they derisively mock those of us who do.

    Bernie Sanders is a good, patriotic American. One of the few politicians who appear to have the welfare of the nation and We the People forefront in his mind. He is way out there with the uncorkable socialism stuffs, but I would not compare him to evil historical figures. I do believe he has the nation’s best interests at heart, and I can’t say that about our current president and the past two.

  4. FB says:

    I’m not convinced he’s sincere. He may have his strong principles in a way but I doubt he’s sincere. He’s closet totalitarian and commie. Democratic socialism is the first step towards communism technically. Communism just steps in when the democratic socialists realize they are failing and must enforce their vision. This guy is in total opposite of the Constitution. A disgrace. And a loser on top of it.

  5. FB says:

    And people comparing Bernie to Jesus should not even be able to vote since they are so freaking dumb. I doubt Bernie would carry a cross and not be afraid of dying. He’s shown he’s a loser his entire life.

    SF: I’m so sorry it might have seemed I was comparing Sanders to Hitler… I should have made it clearer that if it’s SINCERITY we’re crediting someone with that they run that risk….one can be sincere as Jack the Ripper, sincerely wanting young British girls dead….I’m not comparing Sanders to either Hitler or Jack, I’m curious about the idea that sincerity ‘trumps’ intelligence, platform, ideology.
    And it makes me shiver to think of Sanders as a ‘good patriotic American’….I personally don’t believe anybody who’d call himself a socialist is a good American ANYTHING…it’s so anathema to what America stands for.
    He has the interest of the people at heart, as long as they’re poor and needy….that is true.

    We will always have poor amongst us, said Jesus….but we want to help all if we can. It’s not government’s job to force giving on anybody, it’s our hearts that will dictate our giving and to whom…or that’s socialism.

    Scalia’s death ramifications beginning; may he rest in peace…our country may never again.
    This should be totally illegal….yet it now stands as law that a non union member has to pay to support union bargaining rights, etc. Sickening.

  9. Baysider says:

    Sincere …. and sincerely wrong.

  10. Mal says:

    I understood your comparison of Sanders to Hitler, Z, and agree. And to answer your question are the Americans buying it, look at the “HOPE & CHANGE” BS they bought into. Also the BS Hillary is now spewing. They’ll believe even if they doubt it will be done because they’re brainwashed (or brain-dead…..either way, we lose!).

  11. Lisa says:

    Bernie Sanders doesn’t belong as Commander in Chief,instead he belongs in front of impressionable young college students in a classroom. What baffles me about him is does he really believe the entire country can live off the gov’t for everything like he has all his life? I love these lefties who believe they can tax us into prosperity.
    He really believes the rich will pay for all his ideas? It’s impossible to do plus it will trickle down right into the wallets of hard working middle class citizens since they(we) are the biggest pool of a resource.
    Bernie’s ideas is so, as FT said, “sick-ties”

  12. John M. Berger says:

    @Z,
    “He has the interest of the people at heart, as long as they’re poor and needy….that is true.”

    YES, and so much so that his “interest” is sure to grow, exponentially, should (God help us) he win the election. Remember the Soviet Union. Anyone who votes for (or supports in any way) this @$$#0!e should be exiled to North Korea!

    Further, I made the Sanders/Hitler [sincere] comparison before I came to yours and in the context you put it in there is NOTHING to apologize for!

  13. Kid says:

    Anyone who knows even a little knows that socialism is a failure everywhere. Europe created the EU to try to stay alive economically, and now they’re importing moslem invaders to try to stay alive. Maybe next they’ll try eating hemlock for breakfast.

    Bernie seems like a very angry man to me. He’s deep in debt and never worked much. Perfect socialist.

  14. Imp says:

    It wasn’t that long ago…that Vlad Putin warned us not to go down the road of socialism. I’ll take him at his word too. All fascists believe what they’re spewing, which is why they’re so dangerous,

  15. FB says:

    I didn’t know Bernie is deep in debt. I get it now. Like many leftists his ideals are based on his ineptitudes as far as managing his life. Loser.

  16. Mal says:

    I didn’t realize BS is in debt, either. That’s all the more reason I don’t like him. As I’ve said before, I’m a balance sheet guy, whether for myself or my country, because the success of pretty much everything depends on $$$$$, and we are in DEEP, DEEP poo-poo, so if a man hasn’t planned successfully, what makes us believe he can run our country? It is still the main reason I welcomed Trump initially. NOW……………if he would just shut up and quit sounding like a Jr. Highschooler.

  17. FB says:

    At this point, if he sounds like a highschooler, either he smokes too much weeds or he’s getting senile.

  18. bocopro says:

    Re Bernie’s debt . . . an excerpt from my daily rant:

    Incidentally, I found some figures today on Sanders’ finances:

    First, his salary as a senator is $174,000.
    Second, he’s been in Congress since 1990, so he’s made over $5 MILLION in salaries alone over the past 25 years, not counting allowances and bennies, which are substantial.
    Third, he was mayor of Burlington for at least 8 years for which he gets a pension of around $5K per annum.
    Fourth, he gets royalties from a book he authored and fees for speeches and appearances.
    Fifth, his wife has a retirement plan and stocks worth at least a quarter million.

    So how the fletcher’s farkle can he consistently run a credit card debt in 5 figures nearly every year?
    Sounds to me as if he’s living exactly the kind of life he propose for everyone: government salary, living beyond one’s means, and borrowed money.

  19. FB says:

    If that’s the case, sounds like he doesn’t mind participating into helping Wall Street and the banks by being a stupid consumer. What a clown.

  20. bocopro says:

    There was some mention in the articles about his having paid for a couple of weddings (his daughter and another one for his niece). I can speak from experience that weddings can get quickly up into the high 5-figure range.

    I know we got off cheap on 2 of ’em by getting great deals on the venues and doing much of the cooking and other prep ourselves, but still the total for 3 weddings was into 6 figures, and I wasn’t making anywhere near what a congresskritter or senilator makes.

    Oh, well . . . as Milady frequently reminds me — ya can’t take it with ya, and if you leave it lying around, your kids will just pi– it away anyhow, so why not spend it on ’em to have a good time.

  21. FB says:

    Well it’s simple: if you don’t have the money for a wedding, just don’t get into massive debt. It’s that simple. Or know what you get into. I have no patience for this.

  22. bocopro says:

    I’m very fortunate in that my partner (wife of 55 years) HATES to find spare cash lying around but steadfastly refuses to get us into debt. She’ll ravage a checking account, beat it down to parade rest, but she won’t touch savings without a family confab.

    I’ve had some small CDs for about 30 years now and she’s never touched a single one of ’em. Loves to throw cash at our kids, tho, for new refrigerators, roofs, stoves, doors, air conditioners, furnaces, new tires, and so on. Just won’t touch the savings to do it. Sez one day WE’LL need a new roof, or new tires, or a new A/C, or whatever, and she can’t stand the thought of renting someone else’s money to pay for it.

    I done good in mate selection . . . much better’n what my daughters managed for themselves.

  23. Kid says:

    My first wife bought her wedding dress for 25 bucks. We had our wedding here at a rose garden in Glendale Az. http://nebula.wsimg.com/11c665d0f2069f58eb703aed2784ff08?AccessKeyId=40E71F26288C5D1A7584&disposition=0&alloworigin=1

    and

    My Father in law, who was a Pentacostal Pastor at the time, performed the ceremony for free. Her brother provided some Sax music for free. Whole thing probably cost $250. Too bad she was a psycho…

  24. Bob says:

    After Bocopo there’s not a lot to be said. As a matter of fact, there’s very little to be said about Sanders except he is a bitter little communist who cannot understand or stand others success. He is basically a jealous, petty wannabe tyrant.

    Z said it good, too. “I believe Hitler was probably very sincere, too.” That’s enough for me to flush old Bernie down the toilet, along with those wannabe students crying for a safe place on campus. What ever happened to the days when a safe place on campus was considered a good make-out place?

  25. Imp says:

    @Bob….like it or not…Hitler created jobs and got Germany back on it’s feet again after the Versailles disaster. Bernie? I don’t think so….Stalin probably had more going than this Brooklyn bolshevik.

  26. If you enjoyed Barrack Obama’s finger waving, you’ll enjoy Bernies twice as much. Never wrong and always has more to say…

  27. geeez2014 says:

    Imp; created jobs and got Germany back on its feet…until he killed six million Jews and destroyed Germany from within?

    Bernie is a total JOKE.

    Vrag, correct.

  28. bunkerville says:

    Bernie is a one trick pony. We can only hope the majority don’t fall for his trick of giving my stuff to someone else. Sincere? Sure why not. Everyone likes my stuff.

  29. jerrydablade says:

    That Bernie silhouette makes a great T shirt, just like that Che fella…. Looks great, but we gotta go now cuz they’re waving us onto the train.
