Dean endorses socialist in senate bid,00.html

PArty of the people, indeed.
Those silly demoncrats get nuttier by the day.

WTF is wrong with your party, where you guys actually elected a socialist to the House, and've got one running for a Senatorial position????

Bernard ("Bernie") Sanders (born September 8, 1941) has been a member of the United States House of Representatives since 1991, representing the state of Vermont; he will most likely run for the Senate, in the seat vacated by James Jeffords. He is the only independent member of the House, and is one of very few self-declared socialists elected to federal office in the United States in recent times.

"The Father-heart of God was... thrilled with me -- an immature, mess-making spiritual infant... My heavenly Father was enjoying me while I was yet in the process of maturing, not sighing in disgust and waiting impatiently until I grew up. He loved and longed for me; He felt proud and was excited over me while I was falling short."

The dems have a long history of flirting with socialism. Looks like some of them still don't understand that it doesn't work.

Well it works until the government goes broke and there is a giant public backlash that puts the entire country into a giant depression. But until then the masses are so overjoyed with all the free government programs they could care less about being reasonable and far-sighted.

Why would the government go broke? They'll just keep raising taxes.

Take a look at New Zealand, a socialist paradise from what I understand....40% tax rate is not uncommon. Can you imagine paying the government three times what you already do? I can't.

This is eye opening:

Example 1
John's total taxable income for the year was $65,238. Here is how to work out the amount of tax due on the income:

$0 to $38,000 @ 19.5% = $7,410.00
$38,001 to $60,000 @ 33% = $7,260.00
$60,001 to $65,238 @ 39% = $2,042.82

Make $65,000 and owe the government $16,000. Effectively that's ~25%.

Fuckin crazy!!!
