    Bernie Sanders was asked to leave a Hippie Commune for being too lazy. That's right, the man that young people want to be president was too lazy to be a hippie in a hippie commune. :lol:

    The gospel truth is, I could care less how lazy someone is. I can appreciate wanting life outside of the fast lane. But the problem comes when you believe you have the right to someone else's labor and/or wealth. It's appalling that the Democrat party never let go of slavery. 200 years ago they wanted slaves to work for them and today they still want slaves to work for them.

    A book written on the basis that her parents were friends of somebody there. Great source. Nothing like vetting your own links.

    And I'm sure after 45 years it's pure coincidence the book comes out during its subject's maximum name recognition. Just lucky that way.

    There's no such thing as the "Democrat Party". The closest similar name, the Democratic Party, didn't even EXIST 200 years ago.

    Sanders has never been a Democrat before this campaign anyway.

    Holy shit what a crash and burn. :rofl:

    And this except is a shining example of everything that is wrong with liberalism:

    "The commune was ultimately a casualty of the War on Drugs. One of its residents, Jed, ran a sophisticated marijuana grow operation to supplement his farmers’ income. When the authorities descended on the land in the mid-1980s, they found nearby a quarter million dollars of marijuana and a small arsenal of weapons, including “a bullet-proof vest, a machete, a gas mask, and a fully loaded Uzi.”

    Because Jed had set up his operation on Myrtle Hill’s land, a guilty verdict could have jeopardized the entire commune—a hard lesson about liability and private property ownership for the commune’s remaining residents. While Jed was found guilty, the other residents managed to beat the rap and save the farm from being taken by the government. They broke the land into individually-owned parcels shortly afterward, bringing the Myrtle Hill experiment to a close."


    Liberals struggle with basic concepts (economics, the U.S. Constitution, history, etc.) and that is a perfect example. Everything the left does is single point of failure. They want to invest all of the United States in the federal government. The problem with that (as our founders realized) is that if the federal government fails, the entire country fails. We were designed by the founders with redundancy. 50 individual states operating independently of the other states - united only in 18 specific issues (money, intellectual property, defense, etc.). That way, if one state or municipality failed - like Detroit going bankrupt (thanks to liberalism) - the rest of us were unaffected by the choices. This hippie commune is a prime example of liberal stupidity. And even these filthy, uneducated, doped up hippies were able to learn from the near disaster and immediately broke up the land into individually owned properties so that the poor decisions of any one individual would not destroy everyone. It's a lesson that the modern day liberal has been unable to grasp as of yet.

    Yep Sanders is a horrible candidate. If he somehow wins the nomination I may become a Trump Democrat.
