Later today, Bernie Sanders will continue his 2020 campaign by making a speech in favor of socialism, according to Fox News.
Of course, Sanders’ forthcoming speech will be dressed up as a means of helping the working-class. However, Americans who understand the manipulations of the Democrats and the ways in which the economy works will see right through Sanders’ utopian fantasies.
A Closer Look at the Socialist Pipe Dream
When Sanders delivers his speech, he will use the typical talking points which promote free-for-alls.
Issued excerpts confirmed that the socialist will make the following declarations:
“We must take the next step forward and guarantee every man, woman and child in our country basic economic rights – the right to quality health care, the right to as much education as one needs to succeed in our society, the right to a decent job, the right to affordable housing, the right to a secure retirement and the right to live in a clean environment. We must recognize that in the 21st century, in the wealthiest country in the history of the world, economic rights are human rights.”
The problem is that when Democrats say that something is a “right,” what they really mean is that taxes should increase in order to pay for all the “free” stuff they want to give out. Examples of such include Medicare-for-All, free college, and doubling the minimum wage.
We must recognize that in the 21st century, in the wealthiest country in the history of the world, economic rights are human rights. This is what I mean by democratic socialism.

There are No Free Lunches
Sadly, like other socialists, Sanders fails to understand that anything which is “free” will cost Americans in taxes, hence the loss of more hard-earned money. Furthermore, if the minimum wage is raised, prices will increase and hours assigned to the working-class will decrease. We’ve seen this happen time and time again, but Democrats simply don’t care at this point.
Merely throwing money at a problem never solves it. Getting to the root of issues, incentivizing people to work and increasing job opportunities is the best way to promote the “economic rights” which Sanders professes to care for. Socialism will always fail, crash, and burn because when it’s all said and done, you eventually run out of other people’s money.
