Bernie Sanders was a huge loser who didn’t earn a steady paycheck until he was 40 years old. He was a slob who lived in a shack with a dirt floor. He later wrote about masturbation and rape for left-wing rags for $50 a story. The Socialist then wormed his way into politics.
Bernie had his electricity cut off a lot so he’d run an extension cord down to the basement. He couldn’t pay his bills.
And today he’s running for president so he can take your money and redistribute it.
Worse yet his first real job was working at the food stamp center:
“I never had any money my entire life,” Sanders told Vermont public TV in 1985, after settling into his first real job as mayor of Burlington. It took him 40 years to collect his first steady paycheck — and it was a government check. One of his first jobs was registering people for food stands, and it was all downhill from there.
Sanders spent most of his life as an angry radical and agitator who never accomplished much of anything. And yet now he thinks he deserves the power to run your life and your finances — “We will raise taxes;” he confirmed Monday, “yes, we will.”
He drove around in a rusted-out, Bondo-covered VW bug with no working windshield wipers. Friends said he was “always poor” and his “electricity was turned off a lot.” They described him as a slob who kept a messy apartment — and this is what his friends had to say about him. He still hasn’t earned a paycheck. He just finally figured out how to get a steady stream of money from the government. Getting a paying check doesn’t mean you earned it.
He finally wormed his way into the Senate in 2006, where he still ranks as one of the poorest members of Congress. Save for a municipal pension, Sanders lists no assets in his name. All the assets provided in his financial disclosure form are his second wife’s. He does, however, have as much as $65,000 in credit-card debt.
The No. 2 guy [running for the Democratic nomination] went to the Soviet Union on his honeymoon, and I don’t think he ever came back,”Lindsey Graham said to raucous applause.
