Senator Bernie Sanders

Recommended Posts

He just said they have to break the banks up :o

Better get him framed for a rape or something quick! Going to be a bit tricky at his age though, perhaps a sudden heart attack would be the best option.

You should have heard what he said about trade policies and giant corporations. He was seriously unforgiving.

Bernie Sanders has been the token socialist in the US senate for ages. Having him around is proof that democracy is real and that people do have a choice when they vote. America is so locked down they can afford to have the odd dissident.

Just watched this on a Facebook link.

Good speech, not that it will make any difference. There is a war on and we are on the wrong side.

This posted here from a while back:

160,000 families, 0.3% of the population, own 37 million acres, two thirds of Britain, 230 acres each.

Just 1,252 of them own 57% of Scotland. They pay no land tax. Instead every government gives them £2.3

billion a year and the EU gives them a further £2 billion. Each family gets £26,875.

By contrast, 57.5 million of us pay £10 billion a year in council tax, a land tax, £550 per household. We

live in 24 million homes on about four million acres. 65% of homes are privately owned, so 16 million of

us own just 2.8 million acres, an average 0.18 acres each.

What he says is not socialist I can assure you.

His speech is spot on.

Perhaps the US people should not re-elect any senator/congressman who is supportive of the banks or on the bank lobbyists payroll.

Time to jail the Wall Street CEOs.

It wouldn't be. But in the Alice in Wonderland theatre of american politics, socialist is how Sanders is labelled. Hell, he even calls himself socialist. He is what we used to call on the high school football (american) team, a token ni**er.

For capitalism to function we needed financial institutions however the bedrock of capitalism is that the strong companies succeed and the weak fail? The banks have circumvented capitalisms realities and because of their unique position have frankly used totalitarian techniques to force the masses to become beholden to them. The sooner that we restore the balance in capitalism the better, the banks have to be broken up and replaced.

Well, as a socialist, I can assure you it is.

Socialism is not equal to cutting taxes for the wealthiest 0.3% in order to keep people fed and housed when they lose their jobs. Unless you call having a soul 'socialism'.

It's not just banks. For decades now large corporations have been all over the legislative process to pass laws that advantage them. They're worse than the unions of the 70s!

Bernie got Greenspan spot on.

In later hidsight (I have watched and posted this clip many times over the years) his analysis is even more spot on, in fact massively so after the banksters were pumped with more taxpayer money and the central bankes continued their myopic targeting of their so callled growth policies. They really do know sweet FA about wealth creation in the overall economy. Edited by OnlyMe

And the fact that Sanders is still in the Senate is proof of how harmless he is. You could tell the old USSR was doomed by how quickly they stomped on any opposition. The US has perfected control hence they can have some opposition speak their minds with no consequence at all.

Of course I do because I have experienced it. The colossus that is the US represents an ideal of democracy that wants to attract the best and brightest, and part of this ideation is an opposition that ineffectively panders to the concerns of the workers. Having a so-called opposition plays well abroad (and at home) and is another factor in the current multinational competition for talent.

In this the US will clearly win against China or any other pretender.

But the general impression, true or not, is that the US is possibly one of the worst places to be for workers so that communication effort is rather failing isn't it?

And what to make of US corporations that will hire people anywhere but in the US?
