Been thinking about this election process a lot. Here are some more thoughts. Let’s say for instance we get Sanders. He has said himself he is a Socialist. What is a Socialist? Go do some checking on something called the USSR. The term “socialist” is in their name. Go look up the meaning of the name NAZIS from the WWII era and see if you find the word “socialist” in their definition. Why are so many young people following him? I think there are several reasons.
He keeps talking about affordable (or possibly free) college. If you are a young person I want to ask you something. Let’s say you get to go to college for 4 years for free. Is that what you want? Before you answer let’s look at what a college does. They provide the buildings, classrooms, gyms, dorms just for a few items. These building also have water, sewer, electricity, WIFI, security forces, landscape & lawn care. There is more but you get the point.
Then the college also had labor forces in administrators, maintenance personnel, professors, security forces to name just a few. Each of these things such as building with water, sewer, electricity, WIFI, required funds to pay the utility bills, pay the police equipment and payroll, to provide the educators & staff salaries. There are cost involved with all aspects of the college. Where do they currently get their money from? TUITION along with donations and other fund raising methods.
Let’s say we take out the tuition 100%. How long will these colleges exist? Not long for sure.
This is how he gets you young people to follow him. Offering you a free ride. Another way is to offer you more money as in minimum wage hikes. They say $15 per hour. Why stop there? Why not take it $25 per hour, $50 per hour, $75 per hour or even more. Why not? You deserve it – don’t you? Why do they limit it to just a lousy $15 per hour.
