Are you feelin’ the Bern yet? Nothing this exciting has happened since Howard Dean’s psychopathic “Yaaaahhhh!” scream after he came in third in the Iowa caucuses in 2004. It was a war cry that must have made Elizabeth Warren’s Cherokee blood pressure go through the roof. As Chris Plante would say, it’s good to be a Democrat.
While The Donald has establishment Republicans pulling their hair out and on the verge of tears watching their decades-long stranglehold on power becoming more threatened by the day, there’s another sociological game being played on the Dirty Dems’ side of things. Yep, it’s the Bern himself. It seems like everyone is feelin’ the Bern these days.
What an irresistibly charming old coot Bernie Sanders is — kind of like Marx, Lenin, and Stalin, sweethearts all. In fact, Bernie bears an eerie resemblance to Saul Alinsky himself. And while we chuckle at all this, knowing that Bernie has Hillary the Horrible throwing shoes at Bubba and cursing him for his sexual misadventures over the years, the radical left is licking its chops.
Why? Because to radical lefties, Bernie represents more than just a cute sideshow to Hillary’s inevitable exit from the race. They see liberalism/progressivism/socialism/communism as serious business. The vast majority of them, in fact, have made it a lifetime commitment.
While it’s true that radical-left thinking is a serious mental disorder, it’s also true that it’s a threat to those who don’t suffer from this malady, because the crazies are targeting them and their possessions. When Bernie talks revolution, he’s not just some loony uncle who believes in fairy tales. Best we take him seriously, because he is serious. He’s no different than all the other lefties who have been preaching revolution for the masses for at least 150 years.
The reason left-wing revolutionary talk never stops is because it’s extremely difficult to implement tyrannical policies through the ballot box. Thus, to those on the radical left, violent revolution is not just an option, it’s a necessity. They realize people don’t give up their freedom easily, so they see force as the only way to save people from themselves.
Thus, at a time when a majority of Americans want to move away from government control, government regulations, and government theft, ignoramuses on our college campuses, both students (who have no experience with real life) and professors (whose intellect has not developed beyond childhood) are singing the praises of free … Free … FREE. Not free in the traditional sense, but free in the sense of free stuff.
Human nature (read, self-interest), economic reality, and morality are irrelevant to Marxist revolutionaries, and right now they’re feelin’ the Bern. Kind of like that young lady back in 2008 who shouted on television that she was going to get free gas and a suspension of her mortgage payments once Barack Obama took office. Man, was she ever excited. I tell you, she was feelin’ the Bern even then. Hmm … I wonder how she’s enjoying the Obamaconomy today.
Seriously, here’s the problem: While Bernie is a sincere, idealistic old fool, he is not the harmless kook he’s portrayed to be. On the contrary, he gives hope to millions of Americans who have long dreamed of a Bolshevik-style uprising in in the U.S. Trust me, these people would love nothing more than to see blood running in the streets. Odd as it may seem to the mind of a pragmatic capitalist, envy loves blood more than it loves free stuff.
While the anti-establishment revolution on the Republican side of the Demopublican Party is getting most of the attention right now, don’t kid yourself. The envy-based anger on the left is just as strong as the liberty-based anger of those who are fighting to bring down the Republican establishment. And, unfortunately, time is on the side of the radical leftists, so long as a Trump, Cruz, or Carson type doesn’t get hold of the reins of power and totally crush the tyrannical idea of “income equality.”
And, by the way, while we’re talking about it, here’s one of the best-kept secrets of our Orwellian world: Trickle-down economics is the key to a healthy economy and a better life for all those who are willing to work hard! Do you think maybe a few dollars have trickled down from the successes of Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and Jeff Bezos, to name but a few?
Only an idiot would be unable to see the obvious, and, unfortunately, America does not have a shortage of idiots. Will some Republican ever have the guts to stand up and say, loudly and clearly, that trickle-down economics works?
The way things have been going for decades, it’s just matter of time until the Demopublicans bring in enough illegals to flood the welfare system — and the voting booths. And once that happens, tyranny will be permanently entrenched in the land of the enslaved and the home of the freeloaders.
Of course, Uncle Bernie is unlikely to win out over Joe Biden or whomever else the Dirty Dems end up running against him, but it matters not. Whoever that other person is, he will keep pressing the gas pedal to the floor in an effort to get as far past that magical tyranny-of-the-majority 51 percent mark as possible. It’s all working out just as Ted Kennedy planned it. He must be smiling from his resting place in Hell.
Give the Marxmeister in the White House credit for damn near taking the ball across the goal line — and lest you get overconfident, let me assure you that he might still make it. As RoboMarco said eighty-seven times in three minutes, the man knows exactly what he’s doing.
I say, viva la revolucion! The question is, which of the two revolutions will prevail? An awful lot of angry people are feelin’ the Bern, but an awful lot of angry people are also feelin’ the Trump. It certainly is fun to watch, but where is George Washington when you need him most?

Robert Ringer is an American icon whose unique insights into life have helped millions of readers worldwide. He is also the author of two New York Times #1 bestselling books, both of which have been listed by The New York Times among the 15 best-selling motivational books of all time.
Robert Ringer‘s Books
This completely updated New York Times #1 bestseller — listed by the New York Times as one of the 15 best-selling motivational books of all time — will open your eyes to a whole new world of possibilities. Because human nature and universal principles never change, Robert Ringer’s philosophy is as relevant today as it was when this timeless classic was first published.
In Looking Out for #1, the author guides you on the most exciting and rewarding journey of your life with his unique insights into how the real world works. Join the millions of people in all walks of life who have discovered the true path to purpose, prosperity, and peace of mind by tapping into Robert Ringer’s treasure chest of knowledge and profound wisdom.
Completely revised and updated for a whole new generation of achievers, this classic New York Times #1 bestseller has captivated millions of readers worldwide. In straightforward, easy-to-understand terms, Robert Ringer explains exactly what intimidation is and how you can defend yourself against the intimidators of the world.
If you heed the realities set forth in this landmark book, there will be fewer occasions when you find yourself scratching your head and trying to figure out why a deal you thought you had under control ended up falling apart at the seams. Join the millions of entrepreneurs, business owners, and individuals in all walks of life who have elevated both their business and personal lives to a whole new level of success through this remarkable book.
Notwithstanding its rise to New York Times #1 bestseller status, the original title of this book, Winning Through Intimidation, sparked a great deal of controversy over the years. Many people insisted that the book was mistitled, because it was not, as the title seemed to suggest, a guide on how to get ahead by intimidating others. As a result, the title was changed to To Be or Not to Be Intimidated? And that, in turn, caused many other readers to protest that they preferred the original title.
The solution? The book is now being published under both titles! In any event, just to be clear, Winning Through Intimidation and To Be or Not to Be Intimidated? are one and the same book.
In his trademark, entertaining style, Robert Ringer dispenses with pretentious jargon and offers powerful ideas and strategies that really work. And in doing so, he shatters many cherished, time-wasting myths, including the belief that success is dependent upon one’s being blessed with superior intelligence, special skills, an impeccable formal education, or good luck.
In Million Dollar Habits, Ringer explains that the most certain path to high achievement is to develop the same, simple habits that all great achievers practice, habits that anyone with average intelligence and determination can master. Best of all, since these habits can never be taken from you, once you’ve acquired them, you’re in a position to quickly overcome any kind of adversity and start moving again in the right direction.
Ideas are precious commodities, sound preparation is invaluable, and knowledge and wisdom are essential when it comes to achieving greatness. But, says Robert Ringer, ideas, preparation, knowledge, and wisdom are all but useless without action, because action is the starting point of all progress.
In Action! the author explains that adversity is never a valid excuse for inaction, because action gives you the power to overcome virtually all obstacles in your path. Adversity is, in fact, the best reason of all for taking action, because it gets your creative juices flowing and brings forth your resourcefulness.
The entrepreneur, America’s great unsung hero, is the easiest target for the government’s insatiable appetite to exercise control over the economy. Yet, left alone, he is able to create more and better products and services, create jobs, and, as a result, grow the economy and thereby improve the lives of millions of people through the self-regulating “invisible hand” of the marketplace.
In The Entrepreneur, Robert Ringer makes the case that the time has come for Americans to tell politicians they don’t want any more quick fixes or government “help.” All America needs is for the government to get out of the way and allow the entrepreneur to move our country forward.
In Restoring the American Dream, Robert Ringer, in his candid, unapologetic style, explains what people must do to take back America and preserve the American Dream for our children and grandchildren. And he makes it clear that the starting point is to accord liberty a higher priority than all other objectives.
The Founding Fathers believed that people possess a natural right to sovereignty over their own lives and that government has no right to interfere with that sovereignty. In that vein, the author underscores the point that the American Dream is not about government benefits or government-created “rights.” Rather, it’s about individualism, self-responsibility, personal freedom, and, above all, the idea that people are above government.
