Bernie Sanders makes too much sense to ever win.

For those that want to save 13 minutes, I'll summarize.

We have to put more penalties on the successful business owners and job creators so that we can give more handouts and "free" healthcare to the unemployed leeches. This will somehow restore the "middle class".

Bernie isn't about the middle class. He's about the poor class and getting them "more stuff".
He's a socialist.

Well, I suppose it's better than being a racist Hillary supporter.

To be specific he is a democratic socialist, much like the Canadian party that just trounced everyone else in elections in Alberta this week.

He's a socialist with socialist ideas.
A tax system based on "ability to pay" ?
Which totally goes against what a single payer health care system is about.
Expand the welfare programs ? Who will pay if the tax system is based on "ability to pay" ?

https://berniesanders.com/issues/
-a progressive tax system in this country which is based on ability to pay.
-millions of seniors live in poverty and we have the highest rate of childhood poverty of any major country. We must strengthen the social safety net, not weaken it.
-health care is a right, not a privilege. Clearly, we must move toward a single-payer system.
-The current federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour is a starvation wage
-Union workers who are able to collectively bargain for higher wages and benefits earn substantially more than non-union workers
-establishing worker-owned cooperatives (government subsidized)
