Bernie Sanders = Democrats = Socialism
Bernie Sanders admits to being a socialist and the rest of the Democrats do not claim to be socialists but if you take a close look at where they are trying to take us, you will find that they are forcing us into a socialist state. Let’s visit some very interesting statistics about what happens when we move into a socialist government.
The simplest approach is to look at the states that are dominated by democrats like California, New York and Illinois. Those states have more people on welfare than they have actually holding down a job. Ohio is run by a Republican, John Kasich, who leans left in order to keep control of his state. New Mexico is another state with large population on welfare. Alabama, Kentucky and Maine are states that have poor working class folks who lost jobs and now are on welfare.
So just how much does a person get on welfare. Keep in mind they get food stamps, housing support, child care, Medicaid and other benefits like free cellphones. All totaled, these folks received about $168 a day in value from welfare.
The average household income in America for those who do work is $137. So it really does pay not to work. You get about $30 an hour while on welfare but the average income for the working folks is $20 a day. Again, it pays better not to work.
Let’s take a look at single payer health care in other countries to get an ideal where the democrats want to take us. In the US you have a 65% chance of surviving cancer 5 years after finding out you have it. In England, it is a 46% chance and in Canada it is 42%. Socialized medicine is not doing better. In the US, those diagnosed with diabetes get help within 6 months 93% of the time. In England it is terrible since only 15% get help in that period of time. Canada is less than half of the US rate at 43%. How about seniors who need a hip replacement? Again, in England only 15% will get that procedure done within 6 months. That means 85% will suffer from excruciating pain for over 6 months. In the US you get your hip replacement done in 90% of the time within 6 months. Canada? 43%. How about a referral to see a specialist from you doctor. US is 77% and England and Canada are just about tied with a percentage ranking of 40% and 43%.
If you look at 1 million people in the US, 71 will get an MRI. But in England, only 14 out of a million will get an MRI. It is 18 out of a million in Canada. And ask yourself about how healthy our seniors are after getting past 65 years of age. 12% are quite healthy. But in England, on 2% are healthy. And the seniors in Canada, only 6%.
The US does not have national health care and our population is doing much better and those who live in England and Canada under a national health care system.
Here is another interesting tidbit of information that should tell you if our current president fit to lead a capitalist nation. A president needs to appoint good advisors to their cabinet so they can get proper advice to run this country. The percentages of cabinet members who had worked in the private sector in the business world range from 55% down to 30% for each of our presidents from Teddy Roosevelt to George H Bush. President Obama appointees with business experience ranked at only 8%. The highest were Republicans, Reagan and George W. Bush. The lowest at 30% was President Kennedy, a Democrat. Democrats in charge do not do well running the country and they sure as hell would screw us all if they get us stuck on a national health care system. By the way, there were 8 Presidents over 50% and they were all Republicans.
How can our current president talk to the rest of the world about business when he never worked for a private sector business? A community organizer does not count and neither does someone who was an instructor for ACORN, an organization that is now defunct based on their violations in getting out the vote in elections totally in favor of Democrats. Some of their members were indicted. So 92% of all Obama advisors never held a job in business. They worked in Academia, government and non-profits associated with their democrat party.
Winston Churchill explained what socialism is with this quote: Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy. Its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.”
