When Russia erupted in Revolution in 1917, Vladimir Lenin promised the people, Peace, Bread, Land. He definitely withdrew Russia from World War I but there was suffering from then until the Berlin Wall fell in 1989 and Russia began to rebuild under Capitalism.

Adolf Hitler promised the German people a Third Reich that would last a thousand years. Millions of Germany's finest shed their blood while he stayed out of harm's way until VE day.

After Fidel Castro successfully overthrew the Batista regime in Cuba, he gave free education, healthcare, transport and public phones. Cuba to this day is still suffering with only those in official positions enjoying the benefits of privilege.

Hugo Chavez was elected President of Venezuela in 1998. Some of his programs included spending on education, food coupons, and social services. The country began its decline and continued downward under the control of Nicolas Maduro. Today, Venezuela, so beloved by Democrats and Hollywood, is the epitome of Socialism's failure on a grand scale.

What did all of the bad leaders above have in common - a huge store of Useful Idiots who do nothing to understand history and its ramifications.

And so, with trepidation, I decided to watch some of the Bernie Sanders, an avowed Socialist, in a Townhall on Fox Cable News, broadcast on April 15, 2019.

I have no fear of Comrade Bernie Sanders and his wild-eyed outlook on life – but I do fear the crazed, willfully ignorant people, or Useful Idiots, who applauded and cheered at every piece of insanity he announced.

Among his proposals; a $15/hour 'living wage'. In spite of this repeatedly killing jobs or reducing work hours. When people lose jobs or lose work hours the possibility of those people seeking Government assistance increases. Many of Comrade Bernie's supporters may not participate in paying taxes at all so any increase of taxes on higher wage earners is perfectly fine with them.
(Cue the Useful Idiots for applause and cheers)

Comrade Bernie calls for free healthcare for all, including illegal immigrants. Forecasts on cost has proven this is unsustainable. When pressed on how it would all be paid for he admitted “health care cannot be free,” Americans would "pay more in taxes."

(Cue the Useful Idiots for applause and cheers)

When he was questioned about late-term abortion he claimed it happened rarely and it was being politicized. “I think that happens very, very rarely and I think this is being made into a political issue.” But Democrat Legislatures in more than 20 states have passed a late-term abortion law, thus moving from the 'rarely' category to 'common'. So, who has politicized this issue?

He added; “At the end of the day, I think the decision over abortion belongs to a woman and her physician and not the government,” In my humble opinion I believe a potential human deserves better, so just take the word 'abortion' from the above statement and substitute 'murder' because that's what it is.
(Cue the Useful Idiots for applause and cheers)

Comrade Bernie wants Free college for all. If all education goes public the money once paid for tuition and related costs shifts to the American taxpayer. Taxpayers would be responsible for the buildings, maintenance, teacher salaries, insurance costs, housing, books, sports-related expenses, etc.

(Cue the Useful Idiots with applause and cheers)

Comrade Bernie stated that 47 Million Americans live in Poverty. My version of poverty is living in a shack, wearing rags for clothing and not knowing where your next meal is coming from. But according to research, instead of fake news, the Census Bureau estimates indicate a majority of those in poverty have, refrigerators, microwaves, washer and dryer, television, computers, air conditioning, cell phones, et al.

(Cue the Useful Idiots with applause and cheers)

He complained about companies paying no taxes. But over 50 million Americans don't pay taxes yet the difference is, a company like Amazon employs over half a million workers – who pay taxes. How many workers are employed by people who pay no taxes? Anybody?

When pressed by the moderators about refusing his tax refund or sending a check to the U.S. Treasury, he scoffed, then changed the subject saying, “I paid the taxes I owe", "And by the way, why don't your get Donald Trump up here and ask him how much he pays in taxes? President Trump watches your network a little bit, right? Hey President Trump, my wife and I just released 10 years. Please do the same." Yes, when you ask Comrade Bernie about his taxes he turns it into targeting Donald Trump. In 1974, now millionaire Bernie stated, “Nobody should earn more than a million dollars”.

(Cue the Useful Idiots with applause and cheers)

Comrade Bernie also defended the antisemitism of freshly-minted Muslim Congresswoman, Ilan Omar, stating “It is not anti-Semitic to be critical of a right-wing government in Israel,” Note to Bernie, she told people at a speech CAIR was formed after “some people did something” on 9/11. CAIR was formed years earlier. You are willing to abandon your own religion in hopes of gaining a vote from her supporters. Show us your 30 pieces of silver, please.

Our Dear Leader stated many Americans are working “two to three jobs to make ends meet”
This has been debunked many times. This is the same propaganda spouted by the Left year after year. Make people jealous if your neighbor has more than you. Vote for me and we will all be equal – in misery!

He wants to give convicted felons the right to vote. Denying felons the vote is society's way of not allowing them to participate in the Electoral process. So, why do we put people in prison for wrong doing yet reward them by letting them make voting decisions on, oh, let's say, prison sentences?

On immigration, Sanders said we "don't need to demonize immigrants" and proposed "building proper facilities right on the border". This was blocked in the last budgetary measure by not allowing more funds for holding illegal border crossers. He never mentioned that.

Alright, I've said enough. I have written repeatedly on people's continued ignorance since 2006 so why should people be different today? This I attribute to Emotional Retardation – whereby a person's body grows into adulthood but their minds remain child-like. Should Donald Trump be re-elected in 2020 wait and see how many of the young socialist darlings turn ignorant, frustrated Commies into cold-blooded attackers. It may make Anti-fa seem tame in comparison.

I include two comments from the Fox News website; one based in reality, the other from a Useful Idiot:

Just finished watching Bernie. If they ever make a remake of any Fred Astaire movies, Bernie would be excellent. I've never seen some much dancing around the issues. In the typical politician fashion, he avoided answering direct questions and sidestepped or changed the subject.

Wow, Bernie really took it to Fox News! Hey cons, how's it feel getting owned by a socialist?

On a personal note: While putting the finishing touches on this article my Bride and I took advantage of a Christmas Gift Card for a local eatery. At a nearby table was a toddler, a Grandpa-appearing man and two younger women. Every few moments after the toddler let out a ear-piercing squeal, it immediately garnered her attention from one of the adults.

That's how Emotional Retardation begins – with the toddler having already trained the adult in responding to behavior that would have gotten my ears boxed when I was a kid. Do you wonder why so many younger people have trouble, not only grasping reality, but the everyday challenges of survival? That happened when 'compassionate' people criminalized spanking. Today we were treated to a newborn disciple of the “me first”, Socialist generation.
