Warning: I Support Me Some Bernie! There, I said it.
And if you are going to call him a Socialist, then so be it: I’m a Socialist.
Take a look at the world right now. If you have a good job, then everything looks good, if you don’t, you see the world for what it is: Unsustainable. The rich are getting richer, the poor, poorer, and all of you who have a job now, are being fooled into believing that tax cuts for the rich is good for you. It isn’t and deep down inside you know it. You know that their tax revenue that use to pay for roads for us all, has now been converted to tollways. Look at your tool bill, it’s a tax on you. You know that the tax revenue that use to pay for a good public education has been pulled out of the system and if you have a kid in public school, you are paying for everything from sports jerseys to books. All of which use to be included in the public school system. Now, by cutting the tax on the wealthy, you are left paying more of the bill so their well-groomed kids can feel even more privilege when they drive by you with their heads raised in the air. Here’s the kicker, if you are a self-employed slob like me making around 50k a year, you are paying more taxes than someone making 500k a year because they are the only ones with a voice in today’s Disinformation reality.
Bernie wants to change this, and so do I.
So call me a Socialist, that’s fine. I’m a Socialist, a “Democratic Socialist” as Bernies calls it. The way things use to be in American before the Wealthily bastards bought up all the news outlets and told you it wasn’t. In 1950’s they paid their taxes. Today they don’t. Call me a Socialist, fine, just don’t call me late for dinner.
