(National Sentinel)Â United Socialist States of America:Â Your grandfatherâ€™s Democratic Party is dead and gone, as evidenced by its hard-Left turn away from ordinary everyday Americans who make this country work.
The latest evidence of this massive shift in political ideology is a serious legislative proposal by Sen. â€œCrazy Bernieâ€ Sanders, an â€œindependentâ€ from Vermont who honeymooned with his wife back in the dayÂ in the â€œworkerâ€™s paradiseâ€ known as the Soviet Union.
Seems Bernie thinks everyone ought to have aÂ governmentÂ job, and ought to make at least $15 an hour doing it. No word yet on how Bernie would pay for this boondoggle other than â€œtaxing the wealthyâ€ â€” who, presumably, will continue working at whatever it isÂ they doÂ rather than taking a Bernie-supplied government gig.Â
(Meanwhile, the Trump FDAÂ is about to regulateâ€¦pizza.)
About Bernieâ€™s government jobs for all plan, heâ€™s not quite finished with it,Â The HillÂ notes. But we are assured that the proposed legislation is on the way:
The senator is still in the early stages of crafting the plan,Â according to the Post, which would provide a jobÂ or required training for any American.
Sandersâ€™s office has yet to release the details of the planâ€™s funding, but previous large-scale projects proposed by the Vermont progressive have involved ending tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans and large corporations.
As further reported byÂ The Washington Post, the proposal would provide a government job to those who only â€œwant or needâ€ one, but no doubt Bernie the Socialist wants everyone to be on the government dole because that way the government could become quite authoritarian and demand all sorts of things from We the People, lest they take away what they giveth:
Sandersâ€™s jobs guarantee would fund hundreds of projectsÂ throughout the United StatesÂ aimed at addressingÂ priorities such asÂ infrastructure, care giving, the environment, education and other goals. Under the job guarantee, every American would be entitled to a job under one of these projects or receive job training to be able to do so, according to an early draft of the proposal.
Sounds great, huh? What could go wrong?Â
Before you get all giddy and believe the lie that plans like this will â€œpay for themselvesâ€ as someone wrote in response to theÂ PostÂ article, ask yourself some basic questions and then try to answer them.
Like, if that were true, why are Bernie and his staff still figuring out how to pay for them, as theÂ PostÂ reported?Â
Hereâ€™s something else to ponder. If communist/socialist economic and labor policies are superior to free-market capitalism (ourÂ supposedÂ model), why did the Soviet Union collapse? Why isnâ€™t Cuba a global superpower? Why isnâ€™t Venezuela rich and prosperous instead of destitute and on the brink of self-destruction?
Plus, thereâ€™s no need for an expensive government jobs program. AsÂ The National SentinelÂ reports, there is record low unemployment all over the country, thanks to the Trump economic plan of deregulation, lower taxes, and created opportunity.
Democrats are still trying to convince voters that government rather than the private sector is best suited to â€˜manageâ€™ the economy.Â Â For anyone who still believes that one word should convince them otherwise: Obamacare.
