Sanders admits he can’t pay for his own programs.

Interviewer: You’re for increased spending in a lot of areas; increased revenue in some areas. But would you submit a balanced budget?

Bernie Sanders: No. Never. Arguably you could not do that.

No. Never. Arguably you could not do that.

That’s it. End of debate. Bernie Sanders himself admits his budgets will not balance. That means more debt onto future generations.

Here’s how one of the world’s most common toxins is poisoning American children

Flint, Michigan is in the midst of a horrific crisis. For years, lead has been leaching from its corroded pipes into its water supply, poisoning its residents.

Lead is one of the most egregious toxic metals that can enter the human body. While it sickens people of all ages, young children are especially vulnerable, as their bodies absorb four to five times as much as adults.

For this reason, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have warned that there are no safe levels of lead exposure for children. According to the World Health Organization, lead exposures contribute to 600,000 new cases of intellectual disabilities in children each year.

Here are the different ways lead exposures can often irreversibly harm young children.

Every major country on earth, whether it’s the U.K., whether it’s France, whether it’s Canada, has managed to provide healthcare to all people as a right and they are spending significantly less per capita on health care than we are. So I do not accept the belief that the United States of America can’t do that.
Ted Cruz is a bigger threat than Donald Trump

While you were laughing at/worrying about Trump, a much worse man is gaining power.

On Google, I found many of his personal quotes which, after the nice icing of political words are removed, are actually quite disturbing. 

On immigration:

As President, I will stop illegal immigration, build a wall that works, triple border security, and put in place the surveillance and biometric tracking to secure the border. Border security is national security. We need to stop Obama’s amnesty and enforce the rule of law. And we need to reform legal immigration to protect American workers.

(This sounds a lot like Trump, except instead of JUST a wall, he wants expensive, fancy technology and keep them darn Mexicans out because they are terrorists who threaten social security and steal our jobs.)

On gun control:

The right to self-defense is an essential component of the liberty we enjoy as Americans and is embodied in the Second Amendment. From successfully protecting law-abiding citizens’ Second Amendment rights at the Supreme Court, to defeating legislation that sought to take away this right, I have always championed the right to keep and bear arms.

(This sounds very republican. Keep reading.)

On foreign policy:

As Commander-in-Chief, I would adopt a foreign policy strategy that follows three principles; Restore leadership on the global stage, rather than withdrawing from it; Fiercely defend our allies and interests; Judge each challenge through the simple test of what is best for America, because what is best for America is best for the world.

(Yes, you heard that right. What’s best for America is best for the world.)

On healthcare: 

If I am elected President, I will repeal Obamacare and propose commonsense reform that makes health care personal, portable, and affordable. I will expand competition in the marketplace, empower consumers and patients to make healthcare decisions with their doctors, and disempower the government from getting in between doctors and their patients.

(Expand competition in the marketplace? In other words, health is a business?)

On law enforcement:

I’m proud to stand with law enforcement, to stand with the police and firefighters and first responders. They are American heroes. And they need a President who doesn’t vilify them and who doesn’t seek to tear us apart along racial lines and inflame racial divisions. Instead, we need a President who works to unify us behind shared American values.

(Yes, he did just defend the police by saying all the recent issues were not race based.)

On environment:

The federal government has imposed far too many regulations that stifle growth, and often protect special interests more than the environment. As president, I will end regulations such as the EPA’s Waters of the U.S. rule and foster economic growth by restoring authority to the states. I will end the backlog of maintenance of our national parks.

(In other words, the government should NOT help the environment.) 

On national security;

We need a Commander-in-Chief who will prioritize U.S. national security interests. That starts by calling the enemy - radical Islamic terrorism - by its name, defeating ISIS, rebuilding the military, and securing the border. Border security is national security. And on day one, I will rip to shreds the catastrophic Iran deal.

(I don’t believe this needs a caption.)

On energy: 

I will embrace an energy policy that utilizes the bountiful resources in this land - from oil to natural gas to ethanol - producing abundant and affordable gas and electricity resources. We are on the verge of an American energy renaissance, and I will lift the regulations that are prohibiting exploration, the Keystone pipeline, and job creation.

(He just said that non renewable resources are ABUNDANT and AFFORDABLE. We are on the verge of an ENERGY RENAISSANCE. THE KEYSTONE PIPELINE.)

On top of these, he is extremely homophobic and says only four states actually have to follow the supreme court ruling from last year. He wants to completely abolish abortion and destroy the IRS.

This man is disgusting. Spread this around.

New Government of Canada e-petition calling for Canada's healthcare to cover prescription medication, mental healthcare & ambulance services

There is a new Government of Canada e-petition asking for The Canadian Government to advance the Canadian Healthcare system to include prescription medication, psychologist & registered therapists, and ambulance services to all.

Text of petition:

Petition to the Government of Canada

  • The Canada Health Act ensures access to emergency medical care and hospital stay;
  • Many Canadians pay out of pocket for prescription medications;
  • Many Canadians pay out of pocket for psychologists, and registered therapists;
  • Many Canadians pay out of pocket for ambulance services.

We, the undersigned, residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to amend our Health Act to include as a right for all Canadians prescription medications, psychologists and registered therapists, and ambulance services regardless of ability to pay.

If you want to sign this petition, do so here.

These epetitions can force the Government of Canada to debate/change laws/take action on these issues:

If they can get 100,000 signatures, the government may be forced to have a 1 hour debate in Parliament. Even if they don’t reach this mark, they still will have more importance than any other petition on the internet. The government will also respond to every petition with 500 signatures or more filed within 45 days.

Why I’m supporting Clinton over Sanders: Liberals don’t need a “savior,” but someone who can actually get things done in Washington
By Amanda Marcotte

Sitting down to craft my explanation of why, going into the primary season, I’m endorsing Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders, I made a critical mistake. I read the unhinged, downright embarrassing attack on Sanders by the Washington Post’s editorial board published Wednesday night. The piece, which is a series of straw man attacks on Sanders’ platform (denying that single-payer healthcare is workable, even though it works perfectly well in Canada and the U.K., for instance) and red-baiting that would make Joe McCarthy proud. It made me want to vote Sanders, just to piss them off.

It’s a shame, too, because there’s actually a germ of an argument here that the biggest problem with Sanders is that his promise of transformative politics is undermined by his unwillingness, in many cases, to give the public and his followers especially a realistic path to actual change. The problem with his single-payer healthcare plan, for instance, isn’t that it’s unworkable — he’s right that replacing insurance premiums with a generic tax that pays for every person probably would save most Americans money — but that he might as well be promising everyone a pony, for all that this is ever going to happen.

Liberals need to get over savior figures who promise the impossible, and learn the nitty-gritty of politics

The idea I would dismantle health care in America while we’re waiting to pass a Medicare for all is just not accurate. The Affordable Care Act has clearly, as Secretary Clinton made the point, done a lot of good things, but, what it has not done is dealt with the fact we have 29 million people today who have zero health insurance, we have even more who are underinsured with large deductibles and copayments and prescription drug prices are off the wall. So I do believe that in the future, not by dismantling what we have here – I helped write that bill – but by moving forward, rallying the American people, I do believe we should have health care for all.
