Bernie Sanders Explains Why “Socialist” Isn’t a Dirty Word – Late Night with Seth Meyers 1

Late Night with Seth Meyers has the interview Bernie Sanders Explains Why “Socialist” Isn’t a Dirty Word.

I have always felt that if the policies that seem out of favor to the public were properly explained, the public would come around. Having Bernie Sanders explain these things is a major contribution to our country and our future. That alone, would be worthy of a great place in history and possibly a Nobel prize.

However, I hope for even more for Bernie Sanders. I hope he is our next President.

Finally we have someone who can explain this rather than cower when faced with a challenge to his ideas. What really irked me about the Colbert Report was when he had a liberal/progressive on and he posed one of the standard right wing charges against them, they had no answer. If Bernie were on the show, he would have all the answers to make Colber’s character look like the fool he was.

    One YouTube respondent commented on this video:

    “the only issue is, this dream of public services like free health care and tuition comes at the cost of extremely high taxes.”

    The answer to this comment is:

    Who cares if we have high taxes if some of those taxes replace services that we would normally have to pay for? You are focusing on the wrong target, if your only concern is the taxes you pay. You should be concerned with getting the most benefit from the money you spend. If you can get a bigger benefit from paying a tax than you could get from spending that money in the private sector, that is something you ought to support.
