Bernie’s Tools For 2020

Yes, it seems that old Bernie hasn’t learned his lesson and is considering running for POTUS again in 2020. 🙄 But hey! Bernie’s an avowed Socialist and, given how many times it’s been tried and how many times it’s failed at a great and bloody cost, it’s not too surprising that Bernie hasn’t learned his lesson.

Yeah, that’s the thing; when you’re a socialist and every problem looks like the “Aristocracy” and the Bourgeoisie, the only tools in your kit are going to be a hammer and sickle.

Bernie’s True Platform

While it certainly matters whether or not Bernie Sanders wins the Democrats’ nomination for POTUS, what matters more is his platform upon which he’s running for office.

Bernie’s True Platform
(Click to Enlarge)

And, when you boil it all down, this is Bernie’s true platform. The State is Mother; the State is Father; the State is God.

How could it be otherwise? Bernie’s an openly admitted Socialist and Socialism as it is enacted as opposed to it’s academic definition requires the State to have total control over every individual from cradle to grave. As it requires total control by the State over all facets of people’s lives, Socialism can’t allow any authority by family or faith unless that authority is merely a proxy for itself.

Obama: You Failed Me

Yesterday, June 19, 2015 Obama gave yet another speech, this time in Beverly Hills, CA, and he was not happy. Apparently, he’s become quite disillusioned and now believes that his constituency has failed him.

“When I ran in 2008, I in fact did not say I would fix it. I said we could fix it,” Obama told an audience of about 250 at a fundraising event here at the stately hillside home of film mogul Tyler Perry. “I didn’t say, ‘Yes, I can.’ I said, ‘Yes, we can.'”

The president continued: “If you’re dissatisfied that every few months we have a mass shooting in this country killing innocent people, then I need you to mobilize and organize a constituency that says this is not normal and we are going to change it.”

— Barack Obama

This, of course, is Obama in a nutshell. The boy hasn’t failed; instead, he’s been failed by anyone and everyone. Or, at least, that’s how Obama’s pettiness and narcissism demands that he see things.

Yet, to borrow Obama’s catchphrase, Let me be clear – he’s not entirely wrong in what he said. A POTUS has deliberately limited ability to affect change and his greatest tool, the Bully Pulpit, only works if people respond to the POTUS’ rhetoric with action…and the Liberals, Progressives, and their minority tenants by and large have repeatedly failed to do so.

The problem with Obama’s belief, attitude, and angry rhetoric is that he’s stupid to believe that his constituency would ever take action. All of them are Statists looking for the Nanny State to take care of them and/or those who they see as possessing “protected traits.” If they were cognitively, emotionally, and philosophically willing and able to take responsibility for getting done what they feel needs to be done they wouldn’t have been likely to need the State to accomplish things in the first place.

True, they elected Obama because he was a Black. Yet they still expected him to be their messiah and to get the jobs they wanted done with as little effort and sacrifice on their parts as was possible.

This again is Obama in a nutshell. The boy doesn’t expect to make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear; he expects the sow to do it herself.
