His ideas are broken.
If we implement all of his ideas, you might be able to get free college, but the 20T+ in debt that the rest of society takes on means you and your descendants will be paying for it in perpetuity.
A good example is what happened in Detroit. Years ago, the police and fireman were promised pensions and based their retirement on this money. Detroit went bankrupt (google Kwame kilpatrick), and many lost 80%+ of the money they were owed. There's no accountability and when it involves the future of myself and my family, I don't want the government anywhere near it.
It means less choice, less opportunity, and less prosperity for the average citizen.
Big companies will flourish as all of the small and mid-sized companies go under because they can't handle the taxes or regulations. Do you want to see more Walmarts or less?
It's ironic that the same people against monopolies are pushing so hard to create them in every industry. The real problem is that most people are so clueless, they don't understand even the simplest ideas of economics or cause/effect. It's all about pure emotion, self-entitlement, and greed.
If Sanders is an option, I will be voting for Trump. Do I agree with Trump? about 10%. However, I know that anything ridiculous he wants to get passed won't get through the gatekeepers of social media, mainstream media, and of course the house+senate. They will keep him in check.
However, when a Democrat is in power, they can do no wrong. I don't remember the last time I heard CNN saying anything negative about Obama or Hillary..and Hillary violated federal law many times.
Even /politics on Reddit is pretty much a biased Sanders-fest. Science and facts go out the window and if you try to fight it, you are bullied into submission by the same people that claim they are against bullying and want more 'honesty'.
This is why the recent South Park season was so on point.
This behavior doesn't even attempt to be open and honest. It merely is a smoke screen to give power to one group of people over another. I look at it as a mental illness.
