Say, I missed this story from last August. So much was going on, this one just slid past me.
Senator Bernie Sanders, who campaigned for the Democrat presidential nomination as a crusader against income inequality, shortly after he finally dropped out of the race, paid some $600,000 to acquire a nice new lakefront home ( http://www.snopes.com/2016/08/10/bernie-sanders-buys-summer-home/ )–just for summer vacationing, mind you.
A spokesman for the social justice warrior candidate said the senator’s purchase of a third home doesn’t in the least “devalue his progressive beliefs.” The senator also owns homes in Vermont and Washington, D.C.
Why is it that no matter what kind of government the people sign up for, a country always winds up getting run by big shots who own several homes apiece? Voted for by a lot of people who don’t even own one home, let alone three or four. How is it that being the champion of the poor can make a man so rich?
If Robin Hood had robbed from the rich and talked about helping the poor, while keeping all the loot for himself and living really high on it… he would have been a Democrat.
