Can we not do giant blocks of text quoting in this thread...

But the way y'all are arguing it makes it sound like he's Trump rich, owning 5,000 sq. Ft. Houses in lavish locations.
Are we? All we've pointed out is that it's silly to pretend that someone richer than 95% of your society is not well off. This in no way implies that richer people don't exist.

We even pointed out that this is not a big deal. It's not important, it's not relevant to his policies. Why are you so dedicated to fighting this?
It is a big deal and it is important to his policies.

It clearly demonstrates he is the biggest freaking hypocrite the world has seen in some time.

How so?
Did he claim people should not be allowed to be rich?
His policies will do nothing to help people maintain their current personal wealth, nor will they allow for further wealth to be created.

Wow.  Thats an amazing leap of logic.

Please, I must know how you came to that conclusion.  Be as detailed as possible.
Okay.

Answer this question honestly.

What is the incentive for me to work harder for less of a percentage of the reward for the work?
I didn't say (conversion of) thermal energy wasn't involved at all.

???
So when I ask for how you concluded that Bernie's policies would stop future wealth creation, you ask me why you'd want to work harder for less?

Ok, To answer your question answer me this: do you like to eat?

Because you can still be rich...?

What incentive do I have to work harder if it means I can only make $8,000,000 a year instead of $11,000,000? I'd rather just work at McDonald's!

Socialists have been known to tax beyond rates of 90%.

And so this gives multi-millionaire entrepreneurs a dilemma. Is it worth going to work, creating businesses, or would they be better off retired or doing business in another country?

You can't tax the super rich. Its called capital flight. They'll leave and take their money with them. this stops 'future wealth creation' because no one is investing. Why would anyone invest in a place that taxes you into the floor when you can get a better return elsewhere?

I can't believe adults actually think socialism is a good idea. I guess there are some staggeringly stupid people out there.

Bernie is losing to a pony faced soldier dog at 46% to 40.5%.

The US has had top tax brackets of 90% in the past, and the actual, effective tax rate is never actually anywhere near that for anyone and there wasn't a mass exodus of companies from the US.

And so this gives multi-millionaire entrepreneurs a dilemma. Is it worth going to work, creating businesses, or would they be better off retired or doing business in another country?
The answer to this nonsensical rhetoric is the same as it always has been, yes it is worth it to keep creating businesses...

You can't tax the super rich. Its called capital flight. They'll leave and take their money with them. this stops 'future wealth creation' because no one is investing. Why would anyone invest in a place that taxes you into the floor when you can get a better return elsewhere?
Excellent, just tax any capital leaving the US at 98% and if the super wealthy want to go pull themselves up by the bootstraps all over again in some other country they are free to do so. Of course that wouldn't matter either since tax shelters are a thing which is why no company would consider moving.

I can't believe adults actually think socialism is a good idea. I guess there are some staggeringly stupid people out there.
Literally no one is talking about socialism right now and you don't understand the most basic definition of it.

You are lucky you aren't American otherwise I would be bullying you into voting for Bernie. And you would do it.


The only person to even have some reasonable opposition to Bernard's platform has been Rushy. The rest of you should feel bad for allowing that to be the case.

Yeah, I want to eat. The best way for that to happen according to Bernie is government cheese and peanut butter...mind you, it has been a while since I qualified, but if I just shut up and trust in Bernie, I can be assured that will surely be awaiting...

This is a thread about Bernie 2020. It is only about socialism. The pepper-faced dictator doesn't talk about anything else.

You are lucky you aren't American otherwise I would be bullying you into voting for Bernie. And you would do it.
If I were American, I would be wearing my MAGA hat, listening to Brad Paisley, watching NASCAR, mining crypto and enjoying a fresh squirrel sandwich. I'd have a large arsenal of guns, wear a checked shirt, own a truck with truck nuts and do line dancing on a Tuesday night. I might even send amorous glaces in my sister's direction and have a personal vendetta against tumbleweed.

I would not be on the latte slurping, purple haired, put a penis in me, safe space needing, iphone poking, tumbler frequenting, DeGeneres loving, not my President side of the country.

He's probably taking Sander's campaign too seriously. Trump will walk 2020. Its not even worth refuting.

As opposed to Trump who custom paints all his private jets.

So you have no argument, have no idea what Bernie's platform is, and your entire line of reasoning is 'Bernie bad.  Trump Good.'

Thanks for, once again, showing us how foolish it is to Support Trump.

Is this thread about Trump?

I thought it was about Sanders?

The argument you seem to have = "LOOK!!! OVER THERE!!! ORANGE MAN BAD!!!"

I wrote strictly about the OP candidate, Bernie Sanders, and you try to derail?

Isn't there a Trump thread already?

Yeah.

Bread lines are not a good sign of economic wealth for any country...but according to Bernie, they are.

I probably should know better than to get involved but I suspect you're straw-manning the shit out of him here.
He said that, did he?
If you are making your claim without evidence then we can discard it without evidence.

Look up Sanders loves bread lines.

"When asked about breadlines in Nicaragua and Sanders’ support for Sandinistas, the senator quipped: “It’s funny, sometimes American journalists talk about how bad a country is, that people are lining up for food. That is a good thing! In other countries people don’t line up for food: the rich get the food and the poor starve to death.”

Rushy definitely does not take Bernard seriously and agrees with your Trump opinion. I think I also agree at this point. I hope sleepy Joe has enough amphetamines in his system to give a lucid speech tonight while hopefully remembering what state he happens to be in. I also hope he calls someone the equivalent of a 'lying dog-faced pony soldier' again.
