    Bernie Sanders announces 2020 run: 'We're gonna win'

    Sen. Bernie Sanders, independent of Vermont, announced Tuesday he is launching a bid for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, hoping to reignite the ardent progressive support of his insurgent 2016 campaign."We're gonna win," Sanders told "CBS This Morning" co-host John Dickerson. In his second run, Sanders is vowing to launch a grassroots movement that will "lay the groundwork for transforming the economic and political life of this country."

    Yep. If the Bern wins, watch out for 27,364% inflation.

    Or move to Venezuela.

    AOC will get the 1 % to pay us. Why are you all sweating this. It's simple math. I'm sure BraveU could show us how it works.

    An economics professor said he had never failed a single student before but had, once, failed an entire class. That class had insisted that socialism worked and that in a socialist society no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer. The professor then said ok, we will have an experiment in this class on socialism.

    All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A. After the first test the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. But, as the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too; so they studied little. The second test average was a D! No one was happy. When the 3rd test rolled around the average was an F.

    The scores never increased as bickering, blame, name calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else. All failed.

    I will use this in the future and I have no doubt it's true.

    Snopes puts that story as "Legend" because it's so vague that it might have happened but simply no way to verify if it actually did. I'd maybe generously class it as a parable. There are lots of commentators on this story out there.
    Do not say, “Why were the old days better than these?” For it is not wise to ask such questions.

    There is a cartoon on YouTube called
    Capitalism vs, Socialism - Economics 101 - Reagan vs. Obama
    I believe the description of the classroom project is in this cartoon.
    Very informative
    This is the video:

    Here's an excellent video about a socialist GPA system:

    It's still accurate.

    It is a parable. And a useful one.

    Socialism is a cancerous tumor festering in the side of humanity that has wrought death, misery, injustice and pain and needs to be eradicated.

    Check out the short video I posted on GPA averaging. It is right in line with your parable. Thing is, those kids were for redistributing income, but not for taking an A student's grade and making it a B so a D student could have a B. Fascinating how easy it is to take someone else's hard work while not being willing to give from your own hard work.

    No, Bernie will not win. He's been wrong before. He'll be wrong again. He does not represent the vast majority of Americans, many of whom are presently jaded by uneven coverage of the news. When people understand Bernie's form of socialism, they will realize he is not talking only about Social Security, and they will quickly abandon him.

    Beyond that, he just looks too old to represent the young new socialists, or the extreme Left of the Democrat Party. Furthermore, he's a white man, which is, as Tucker Carlson might call it, "evil!"
