"A 2-income family today has less disposable income than a 1-income family had 30 years ago. That is moving in the wrong direction." U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders submitted by cynoclast to politics

Sir-Real 0 points 52 points (+52|-0) ago

I agree. I'm not so much against taxing as much as I'm against stupid spending of tax money. Lets say we dropped the defense budget a bit, then sent that money toward fixing roads (on a state level) bridges, public transport, healthcare, schooling, etc. My tax money would actually benefit me and many others heavily. I would be proud to be a taxpayer at that point, since I contribute to all of this. Not to mention the fact that billionaires utilize loopholes to avoid much of their taxes (donating to campaigns can be written off)

Voat needs a blue ribbon instead.

If I had a passing interest in Bernie Sanders, he has forever lost my vote by claiming the American people don't care about Hillary's emails. submitted by 3D-Dude to politics

Sir-Real 0 points 36 points (+36|-0) ago

Saying that was actually his most brilliant move during the entire debate. I didn't understand it at first either, but I had a sort of epiphany about it. If he continued with the email thing: 1. Hilary would've been prepared for any attack, it's literally the biggest thing going against her. 2. It would ruin his image of respect. 3. It would put the spotlight on Hilary.

He removed the entire section of the debate with that line, and with it, invalidated any amount of time Hilary was preparing to fight it. He turned the topic back to policy, where he excels and Hilary fails, kept his image of respect, and most importantly, ripped the spotlight away from Hilary. Think of all the headlines that would've popped after the debate about Hilary and how the other candidates feel about her emails. Think about the headlines against Sanders for directly attacking another candidate, possibly against the party as a whole. And remember that, during the entire debate, Hilary was very prepared to defend herself, as demonstrated at the start of the debate, but was incredibly weak on policy.

It was basically a stealth nuke to Hillary.

The 2nd Amendment wasn't meant to protect us from deer submitted by Crashmarik to politics

Sir-Real 4 points -4 points (+0|-4) ago

But also nowhere in the second amendment does it state that it's for our protection if the government turns against us. Actually, the way it's worded, it's for the protection of the government via regulated militia, written before this country had an official standing army.

Clinton suggests she'd consider mandatory gun buy-backs, sparking fears of confiscation submitted by newoldwave to politics

Sir-Real 3 points -3 points (+0|-3) ago

Interesting thing, the second amendment isn't to protect people against tyrannical governments. It's to protect the state by allowing people to keep guns in order to be an organized militia for times when the state is threatened. Since we have a standing army now, there actually might not even be a need for the second amendment since we don't need to maintain a militia.

Disclaimer: I'm not for Hilary's position and I'm not defending her in the slightest. Just stating some food for thought. I am for the second amendment and personally wish to find some middle ground in regards to it.

EDIT: text of the 2nd amendment in full: "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."

Sanders Would Raise Payroll Taxes on Everyone to Fund Paid Family Leave - Breitbart submitted by toatsmavoats to politics

Sir-Real 4 points -2 points (+2|-4) ago

People start complaining that Sanders has no idea how to manage money. Then when he shows that he does, people bash him for it. I saw the actual full interview, and the payroll tax increase is not just for paid family leave, it was in response to a question about if taxes will be raised and he simply said yeah, just a little. The programs he's pushing takes that tax money and gives it back to the taxpayer in the form of programs that are beneficial to everyone.

If you start paying a higher tax, but then you don't have to pay for healthcare, college, you get paid leave to actually spend time with your family for once, then you benefit off of it. Think of it this way, health insurance works the same way, everyone who buys from that company puts in money that gets relocated to those who need it. This is the same concept on a larger scale.
