I live in Denmark, which has a governmental system built upon the principles of democratic socialism. I pay around 40% of my income partially to the state government, and the rest goes to the governmental body dealing with more local stuff, like schools for children, and a bunch of other practical things.

Given that I pay a very large amount of my paycheck to this system, I think it is fair to say, that the "cheese" is definitely not free. The analogy of the cheese, the mouse and the mousetrap is very misleading in trying to describe democratic socialism.

Some people just don't wish to understand. That is the feeling I get, when seeing this debate. The creator doesn't wish to understand, he has understood his version of how he thinks reality works, and he probably has no intention of changing his mind. Why??? I honestly don't know, because socialism works for the working people. Maybe he is rich.

Nothing is free and Bernie is not afraid to say it is not. He said a few decades before I existed that his medicare for all would bankrupt the United States. He talks about how much it would cost the United States and how he would need to raise taxes on the middle class and upper class to afford the programs he wants.

Sunlight is free. Air is free. Or are you planning to charge people for those too, you ridiculously thick corporate stooge?

Get your fake news away from me you annoying fascist bastard. You're a liar and a piece of shit.

We rate the Washington Free Beacon Right Biased based on story selection that favors the right and Mixed for factual reporting due to misleading and false claims.

So a video of Bernie saying that it would bankrupt the United States is fake?

You have nothing else to come back at me with so you jump str8 to name calling and saying a bunch of irrelevant stuff.

Did you know at one time people where penalized for the number of windows on there house. It was called the natural daylight tax. This happened in the 1696 to 1851. So yes sunlight at one time was not free.
