Every Bernie supporter I know waits tables for a living, or is broke. None that I know of have college degrees, not one single person.

I've weeded out most idiots from my Facebook but I have kept a few people I do like politics aside.

One person I used to work with (I waited tables in college) literally said, "If you make $1,000,000 I can't wait to tax the f*** out of you and take most of it, because you could still live a good life with only $XXX amount."

It's disgusting.

Why even want to go to work and try to achieve success?

“Rest of us?”

Lol...ehh, you’re not in the club you’re pretending to be in. You’re not a contributor like that. You’re a worker bee at best. Someone eeking out an hourly wage. A striver. A beneficiary of the lowest level.

You’re not a C-suiter. Give it a rest.

Well, the good news is that you’ll never have to worry about that.

Okay, think what you want. I'm not a millionaire, yet. But, my gay partner and I work very hard and we have done well. We vote Republican because we don't want people like you to take our money away from us to finance your pet projects.

I know, you have an idea in your head that Republicans are all a bunch of ignorant bumpkins - I have news for you, that is the Democrats.

I’m not the least bit interested in your gay relationship or how much money you make...OR how you vote. None of that is my business, nor is it interesting. Don’t attempt to bore me anymore with that.

The bottom line here is Bernie Sanders. Attempting to portray his supporters as folks from the lower rung of society is simply nonsense. His supporters are probably the most successful of all voters. Certainly higher achievers than Trump’s base, although that’s not saying much.

If you can get out of the trailer park, you've already pretty much achieved that milestone.

Yeah. Too bad it didn’t rub off on him. He’d be a much better man if his dad had actually influenced him instead of just handing him cash.
