Investors Business Daily tells you who the potential democrat party presidential nominee really is.
Despite a prestigious degree, however, Sanders failed to earn a living, even as an adult. It took him 40 years to collect his first steady paycheck â€” and it was a government check.
â€œI never had any money my entire life,â€ Sanders told Vermont public TV in 1985, after settling into his first real job as mayor of Burlington.
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 â€” â€œWe will raise taxes;â€ he confirmed Monday, â€œyes, we will.â€
One of his first jobs was registering people for food stamps, and it was all downhill from there. Sanders took his first bride to live in a maple sugar shack with a dirt floor, and she soon left him. Penniless, he went on unemployment. Then he had a child out of wedlock. Desperate, he tried carpentry but could barely sink a nail. â€œHe was a shi**y carpenter,â€ a friend told Politico Magazine. â€œHis carpentry was not going to support him, and didnâ€™t.â€
Then he tried his hand freelancing for leftist rags, writing about â€œmasturbation and rapeâ€ and other crudities for $50 a story. He drove around in a rusted-out, Bondo-covered VW bug with no working windshield wipers. Friends said he was â€œalways poorâ€ and his â€œelectricity was turned off a lot.â€ They described him as a slob who kept a messy apartment â€” and this is what his friends had to say about him.
The only thing he was good at was talking â€¦ non-stop â€¦ about socialism and how the rich were ripping everybody off. â€œThe whole quality of life in America is based on greed,â€ the bitter layabout said. â€œI believe in the redistribution of wealth in this nation.â€
So he tried politics, starting his own socialist party. Four times he ran for Vermont public office, and four times he lost â€” badly. He never attracted more than single-digit support â€” even in the Peopleâ€™s Republic of Vermont. In his 1971 bid for U.S. Senate, the local press said the 30-year-old â€œSanders describes himself as a carpenter who has worked with â€˜disturbed children.â€™ â€ In other words, a real winner.
