Comments on: Is Bernie Sanders the Ronald Reagan of 2016? http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2016/02/09/why-bernie-sanders-can-win-the-white-house/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: D65406540 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2016/02/09/why-bernie-sanders-can-win-the-white-house/#comment-1128059 Tue, 16 Feb 2016 15:44:06 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=46227#comment-1128059 Another positive blog for the Democrats amongst a slew of negative blogs against the Republicans. Reuters bias is pretty clear. And obviously, Bernie Sanders’ political stances in no way, shape, or form, bear any resemblance to those of Reagan.

He is overstretching his physical strength but has boundless store of moral strength based on truth like Gandhi,the proof how he has inspired people with his limited means where only money is might.

Half the people work, half are on the dole. It is a poor state in real terms in New England. But most are Democratic and failing. NH and MA are doing well. Sanders will be elected just in time to see the US collapse into bankruptcy due to poor economic decisions. Quantitative easing (printing more money) $19 trillion in debt, half the people working, and worse conditions for those employed. Elect a socialist, take a way rights, reeducate the populace how to think in a socialist paradise. Make the decisions for the people to grant them utopia. This is why people will pull the lever for Trump, angry, yes, change yes, business as usual no.

My experience has been that objectivity is one of the rarest of human qualities and nearly absent from the left wing. So, I suppose, not having the capacity for objectivity means you sleep just fine.

Terrible president, terrible legacy. Anybody who tells you different…. probably listens to too much AM radio.

1. Mr. Sanders is angry, Mr. Reagan was a sunny optimist.
2. Mr. Sanders is focused on redistribution as economic policy, Mr. Reagan was focused on “…let’s grow our way out…”.

There are common elements though:
1. Both excite, get the adrenalin going.
2. Both are eloquent.

But, personally, I think Reagan’s approach was more constructive. Mr. Sanders would probably serve his country better if he took the time to read Professor Reisman’s books and study the economic development of Estonia after the fall of the Soviet Union. There is a complete absence of discussion on how wealth and prosperity are created and assured from his message. Frankly, I think this absence is based on ignorance.

Reagan had a certain appeal to the common man cowboy wanna-be as does Bernie, but Bernie is honest and sincere, where as Reagan was a big fake and a fascist.

Reagan was a monster who gave status and impetus to the craziness of the NRA; manufactured lies about “welfare mothers,” was just plain terrible which becomes more and more evident as time passes. Mr. Sanders is an ethical man who has walked his talk for decades and in my opinion a solid hope for for this country to regain power from the oligarchs who are not only destroying this country but the world with their money and greed.

It’s really that simple.

So you can freak out, or you can look at reality. Your choice.
