6. Bernie is not against

 

...the rich!

He's against the rich ripping off everyone else. He's against predatory, unregulated capitalism. He's against the rich not paying their fair share. He's against corporate government.

He's willing to be taxed at much higher rates. I.e. He's willing to pay his fair share. And along the way to continue to work for a more even distribution, a higher share of profits going to workers, not just owners, higher minimum wage, etc.

His money, BTW, came from high book sales since 2016. Oh, the horror!

He's an FDR Democrat, whom, back in the day the Repugs demonized as a socialist, as a Stalinist--because he too was for working people.

FDR of course was a millionare, as is Joe Biden-- and doesn't he campaign as being for workers?

Curious how only Bernie is singled out.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Undecided
