7 Charts Show the Socialist Hellscape America Would Be Under Bernie Sanders

So, if anyone mentions it, Bernie wants us to join the Scandinavian Hellscape.

At the link are 7 charts that demonstrate unequivocally the torturous economy and fountain of crime that Scandinavian Democratic Socialist countries are.

IMHO worth clicking on

3. That's per year

Unless I'm mistaken. Puts a Masters at about $150K, albeit a State school is about $45K.

Funny, Norway looks at it as an investment in their country's future.

6. Stupid communists.

Don't they know that college is a profit center? Invest in the Harvard/Yale/Couldn't-cut-it-in-Texas substandard:

"History?" the pretzeldent, himself a History major, said. "We don't know. We'll all be dead."

this is what they are mocking.

Doesn't make much sense, does it?

10. "Hellscape" sounds like the name of a Nordic death-metal band.

 

(especially if you added umlauts over all the vowels)

Will they play at Bernie's inaugural gala?

17. Thanks

we all should be sending this link to everyone we know

Anyone can call me a commie pinko bastard if they want to but I do think the government is better at a lot of services than the private sector is as these charts show. We don't have to be so mean! When I type 'we' I mean the congress critters and reightwingers

Not a single one of those things would change if Bernie were elected president.

21. If that's the reality, why bother voting?

Don't you hope things will change?

Do you think President Hillary Clinton would change things or would things stay the same, as well?

23. I prefer to be realistic about change

 

There are plenty of things we can change, but it's naive to think that list includes any of them. The US is not going to magically become a socialist nation in our lifetime if ever.

27. And Americans think our wealth divide (and want it even more equal) than what Sweden is...

 

... as shown by the perceptions reflected in the polls in this study that have been engineered upon us by corporate media.

https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/20140922122811-90103575-wealth-inequality-differs-from-income-inequality





Yep! I'd much rather have Sweden's "socialist" wealth "hell" than ours any day!
