WHERE HAVE we heard this malarky before?
Fighting for justice and equality.
Standing up for working families.
Taking on Wall Street.
Fighting for a living wage.
Yada, yada, yada.
Have you nodded off yet? Could these be promises from every presidential campaign in memory? But of course.
And the ad’s title: Real Change. Ring familiar?
Change You Can Believe In. Do you remember? And Barry did deliver on that promise, but little of it is positive. The Mideast is spinning out of control. Plus Russia, China are beefing up.
The U.S. economy slogs on. Racial conflicts escalate.
I believe every bit of it.
And the national debt, now at $20 trillion, has almost doubled during Barry’s presidency.
Oh, dear. Where is leadership?
But my favorite vow of Bernie’s is: Free public colleges! The same thing that Barry has proposed recently. Free!
Of course, there is no free lunch nor free college. Somebody is paying. For every student getting “free” tuition, somebody is toiling somewhere and paying taxes, underwriting a student whether the worker wishes to or not. Pure coercion.
More socialist silliness reflecting total cluelessness. It’s stupendous that so many Americans cheer him on.
But why not? “Free” sounds great. Manna from heaven. Money falling from trees. Silly ole Bern. Daffy supporters.
I do hope you are not one of them.
Putting Bern behind us, let’s turn to a superior option, Ted Cruz. Look at this Cruz ad. Instead of hoary lines like “taking on Wall Street,” “supporting the family” and absurdities like “free” college, Cruz focuses here on a specific, grave danger.
The Mohammedan threat.
After eight years of the nancy Barry, Ted Cruz would be a stupendous replacement in the Oval Office.
