Bernie Sanders is misleading the electorate.
Yesterday I lunched with Bill Sterrett. – We discussed Bernie Sanders’ drive towards Socialism. Sanders promises free College for all – modeled after Scandinavia. I know about Norway (Scandinavia) through personal experience. Bernie Sanders is promoting a fantasy.
College is free in Norway but only for those that are allowed to attend. It is paid for through sky high taxes. In disciplines like medicine and engineering one must have straight A’s to be admitted and it is very difficult to get straight A’s there. The top couple of graduating students from a large high school may get in. What about the remaining 99%? They either don’t get this kind of higher education or they go abroad to USA, England, or elsewhere for their educations where they have to pay! Their taxes or their parent’s taxes pay for free education – but they don’t get it!!! Is that fair? Their taxes pay for a privileged few. For the ones that go outside Norway either their parents pay for it or they take out student loans. The reality is very different from the pipe dream that Sanders presents.
I would hope that a Presidential candidate would show a higher degree of knowledge if he is not deliberately misleading.
