The title basically says it all. Why don't republican/conservative believe in socialism and government assistance. Why not take from the rich and give to the poor? I don't understand why the rich need all this money. Comments from both sides would be great. -Thanks About me: Female liberal In my 20's Social worker
Every time I turn on some political news I keep hearing about how well Bernie Sanders is doing in his bid to become the Democratic nominee for president. I'll admit his numbers have marginally improved over the last month. But he still lags behind Clinton by a mile. Of course the media would prefer a closer race, but reporting it as if there is any kind of real challenge is just plain deceptive. Don't get me wrong, I like Bernie. But the bottom line is that if by some kind of bizarre set of circumstances, Sanders did' become the Democratic nominee, it was most likely insure we would get a Republican president in 2016. Sanders is just to far to the Left to get elected. It must be admitted that a big reason Obama defeated McCain and Romney was because they were too far to the Right. Until the GOP comes to it's senses and moves back towards the center, they have very little chance of ever regaining the White House.
