and yes, he doesn't like the 2nd Amendment. Anyone surprised?
Yes, if Sanders wins he'll raise taxes. On EVERYBODY, whether he currently wants to admit it or not. And the people who can afford it least will get screwed the worst, while he and his followers keep insisting "You'll be happier in the end!"
Next time someone insists "All we need is more money in education!" wrap this around a cluebat and beat them with it. No amount of money will actually improve schools that are totally screwed, and care more about feelings and esteem than actual teaching.
Researchers at Princeton University compared test results of Americans with their peers in more than 20 advanced economies. The results pointed to an alarming trend, as young workers and students between the ages of 16 and 34 lagged far behind their peers in countries like Japan and Sweden in mathematical understanding and literacy. The report says that the results were even more surprising because millennials “have attained the most years of schooling of any cohort in American history.”
Lots of time in schools means NOTHING if they aren't actually worried about kids LEARNING REAL STUFF.
Young Americans are not only losing ground to their peers overseas.
Rising educational attainment in the form of record-breaking college

or trusts that the conferring of credentials and certificates alone is
enough,” it says. “Far too many are graduating high school and
completing postsecondary educational programs without receiving adequate
skills. If we expect to have a better-educated population and a more
competitive workforce, policy makers and other stakeholders will need to
shift the conversation from one of educational attainment to one that
acknowledges the growing importance of skills and examines these more
Which will be fought tooth and nail by the people currently in charge, because they don't actually WANT well-educated kids who learn to think; they're not dependent enough, don't take orders well enough.
