Sure Bernie was poor and yes he was on some sort of government assistance. Yet he WORKED his way out of the hole he found himself in.

Stressed, it’s what you do with the money that makes the difference. Trump was smart about it but without he would of been a bum. Oh wait he is a bum.
You sound like a brainwashed, moronic TROLL. Trump made his money, legitimately in the private sector providing a product people voluntarily BOUGHT.

Bernie and politicians like him just use taxpayer money and their pollical position to sell books, speaking engagements FEES for political influence, use insider trading, and other manipulative things to attain wealth. All on the backs of the TAXPAYER.

Was there a major thaw in Russia? Did the Vodka truck not make it to the local distributer yesterday?

There's gotta be some reason all these bots made it to their cubicles this morning.

It means that you're so emotionally invested in being a victim that you literally don't know how to be anything else.

So much so that you empathize with those who would keep you a victim.

So much so that you advocate the classification of others as victims as well.

When in reality, your victim status is made of nothing but your own imagination.

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?
Meet one who doesn't. I have a college degree and was retired (no Pension or fat Portfolio) and voted for Bernie in the Primary. I worked with mentally impaired adults and special needs children in public schools.

Yes, I could have made far money money than $15/hour if I had gone into Law, but I wanted to do something more meaningful and give back to society. Stress the latter.

Now maybe you could make the case that I leeched off my husband who made 6 figures in the IT world. Does that count? I have thanked him that he made it possible for me to work at something I truly loved doing, rather than at at job I hated just to accumulate money.

Many years ago, we knew a very wealthy family. The man started his own medical supply company. One year he told us he paid $500,000 in personal taxes. "I don't need that money". "If someone else can use my tax money, so be it".

What a sucker, right? Guess what political party he belonged to?

That's true, and there is nothing wrong with that. Just don't complain about your "lot in life" if you are unwilling to work to improve it-and don't expect hard working people to support you with a lifestyle that goes beyond your efforts.

And I find the OPs observations to be in line with mine. The Berniebots I know either are young kids that don't work, or people that have managed to scam the "disability" game. Or...government employees.

I'm a (probably) Bernie voter and I'm not motivated to become rich or 'successful' in the ways modern society likes.

Observe the people in the background of his crowds. Blue hair, and lips dripping with metal. Nuff said.

Assuming a whole lot of nothingburger facts not in evidence, stating a whole bunch of conclusions based upon them …… a Trumpling syndrome.

IOW, a deadbeat. Living off the labor of others.

So why do you expect others who are motivated to be more successful to support you?

Do you see your lack of motivation as some sort of inherent disability?
