LETTER: Socialist Bernie Sanders is just what the United States needs

I found this concise opinion expressed on the pages of DailyInterlake.com (A NW Montana online newspaper)
Posted: Saturday, August 15, 2015 9:00 pm

As I speak to my fellow citizens about Bernie Sanders, I keep having people tell me versions of “I hate socialism” and refusing further discussion.
If you dislike socialism, please quit driving your Freedom car on our Socialist public roads and disconnect your Liberty toilet from our Communist sewage systems. Also remove your mailbox and quit using our Socialist Postal Service, established by renowned commie Ben Franklin and also stay out of our Liberal Library.
On the other hand if you’re willing and able to distinguish between a political ideology and an economic system, a few minutes study will prove Bernie Sanders would be the best thing for America since women got the vote.
True, it will take a political revolution for him to win, but isn’t it time for one? Remember, Liberal and Liberty both have the same root. The very idea of America was the most Liberal invention of the past 1,960 some-odd years. Ignore labels and listen to ideas, then vote, and take a friend who hasn’t voted before.
—Bob Petersen, Evergreen

3. K & R.! Great letter. And I'm trying to watch 'The Fountainhead' (1949) now on TCM,

awful movie based on Ayn Rand's objectivist vs. collectivist, libertarian 'masterpiece' book. It's painfully bad and complete rubbish.

4. A couple he left out ... when your house catches fire, run to your garden hose

 

and get your neighbors to get in a bucket line from their garden hoses.

Then when someone is inside your home at night, no 911 mind you, hope your gun is handy if you have one and don't shoot yourself, or crawl further under the covers until s/he leaves. Then turn on the lights.

Oh yeah, and the insurance you pay on your car, home and life is called actuarial socialism...forget it and hope you never need it.
