Bernie Sanders’s 12-Point Socialist Plan for America

Every committed revolutionary needs a plan.  Karl Marx had one, and so did Joseph Stalin and Mao Zedong.  Add to that group socialist senator Bernie Sanders from Vermont, who is considering running for president (as a Democrat) and has already announced a 12-point plan at the Huffington Post.  He writes:

As Vermont’s senator, here are 12 initiatives that I will be fighting for which can restore America’s middle class.

1. We need a major investment to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure: roads, bridges, water systems, waste water plants, airports, railroads and schools….. A $1 trillion investment in infrastructure could create 13 million decent paying jobs and make this country more efficient and productive

Why does this sound so familiar?  Because it is!  Remember the Obama stimulus plan?  That too was a trillion-dollar investment in our “crumbling infrastructure” (the favorite amorphous buzzword for government spending).  How many millions of permanent jobs were created from that?  I think the exact number was… zero.

2. The United States must lead the world in reversing climate change and make certain that this planet is habitable for our children and grandchildren. We must transform our energy system away from fossil fuels and into energy efficiency and sustainable energies…. and we need to greatly accelerate the progress we are already seeing in wind, solar, geothermal, biomass and other forms of sustainable energy.

Good news!  Our planet is currently habitable for our children and grandchildren.  Nothing further needs be done!  However, if we move away from fossil fuels to cutting-edge Don Quixote technologies from the 1900s, like windmills, our children and grandchildren will be paying enormous costs for energy and will have no energy at all when the wind isn’t blowing (for windmills) and when the sun isn’t shining (for solar).
