Bernie’s pipe dream
To grasp how out of touch Bernie Sanders is, one need only watch an exchange between CNN’s Chris Cuomo and Sanders.
When Cuomo points out Sanders’ socialist candidates are not doing well with the electorate, Sanders shot back: “Not – not true.”
Cuomo presses: “Why aren’t the candidates winning more?”
Sanders says, “Oh, my God, they’re winning all over the country.”
Cuomo fires back: “You had a lot of guys lose. I don’t think you’re even at 500.”
Sanders: “Chris, that is in all due respect not an intelligent way to look at it.”
He goes on, “Our ideas on winning and at the grassroots level more and more people are getting involved.”
Our most fervent hope is that Sanders is wrong; that his socialist ideas are not gaining traction. Most Americans embrace Winston Churchill’s definition of the socialism Sanders espouses:
“Socialism is the philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy.”
It offers next to nothing for freedom-loving Americans.
