Last night I plopped into my lounge chair late and began channel surfing for something worthwhile to watch. What I stopped on was the Democratic Town Hall meeting in Ohio. Bernie Sanders was first up. It is the first time I had an opportunity to hear him speak, and I listened intently. Sanders is a good speaker, much better than Obama. He makes some sense explaining his policies, and I can see why he excites young people. His proposal to make public colleges free to everyone is one of his more popular giveaways.
What disturbed me is that he never really explained what his programs will cost, nor where he will get the money to support them. He did stress often that the one percent should have to pay more than they do. He included corporations, and banks in the one percent. By the end of his hour, I tired of hearing all the free programs he wants to initiate. He made real sense when he spoke of Obama Care crippling small businesses and killing the economy with the high cost of health care. He said a single payer government paid for system would be much cheaper, and small businesses would thrive without that burden. He failed to mention that the taxes a small business would have to pay for having free health care would be even more prohibitive. My conclusion is I’m glad I listened to the man speak. Now I am absolutely convinced he is a nut job, and I did’t come to that conclusion by listening to sound bites. My God, with all the free stuff, why would anyone want to go to school much less work for a living? We could all go lay on a sunny beach and live off the dole. I wonder if there would be any sand left for me to lie on?
Hillary came on next. Frankly, I couldn’t stomach the woman for more than a minute. She began by pounding Trump. She couldn’t stop demanding that Trump take responsibility for the demonstration in Chicago. All I could think is that this lady (excuse me for calling her that) who doesn’t know what responsibility is demand that her opponent be responsible for all the evils in the world. When Hillary takes responsibility for duping the country with her Benghazi video lie, or for killing Ambassador Stevens, or for enabling her sex maniac husband to molest women, or for using a private e-mail system to do government business against the law, then perhaps I will take note of what she has to say. Until then, listening to Hillary tell me that Donald Trump should take responsibility for the morons who stopped him from speaking to Chicagoans falls into the same category as me becoming a socialist.
