Bernie Off the Beam

For John, BLUFFactories and Offices are open two days a week, due to a lack of electricity.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

Hey Bernie, I left Venezuela's socialism behind for a reason

I know I did this back on 8 June, but it is important.

The author is Mr Erick Bremen, writing USA Today.

The lede:

As an immigrant from Latin America, I have found the current presidential election to be both depressing and terrifying — but not for the obvious reason.  The negativity in rhetoric concerns me, of course.  Yet it pales in comparison to the growing acceptance of socialism, which I thought I left behind in my formerly rich homeland, Venezuela.
I see Senator Bernie Sanders as having identified the problems we face.  I am not keen on his idea that Socialism is a solution.

When the Government is in charge of everything and nothing is working the Government solution is to tighten up and double down, and the citizen pays the price.

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
