Thank you for shorting XOM. I like taking your money.
I don't agree
"I think capitalism is great, but I also understand that capitalism in and of itself will never address all of societies problems." This is the most important thing said in your post. Yes, I agree. Capitalism will not address all of society's problems. For example, you have mentally ill people and people with Down's syndrome that need to be taken care of and should have a decent life. Republicans agree with this as well.
Sanders wants to take a disproportionate amount away from working folks including the middle class, and give it away to those who do not want to work. They want to stay home, eat junk food, and make more babies so they can get more from the government. Margaret Thatcher once said, "The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money [to spend]." Sanders can't seem to understand this.
If private industry could find a way to compete with selected monopolies like utilities, it would. It can't and I have invested in XEL's long term strategy and dividend.
Well, s/he doesn't say if they are employed or where they live. If they do live in the U.S., a good assumption would be that they have more time than money with the waste of time as seen through the content of the post. With such time to waste, I would not be surprised that they are proponents of Sander's. Bernie Sanders wants to take from those who earn money and give it to those that don't. If he gets a national minimum wage of $15, you will just see more people asking to cut their hours to keep on welfare and the benefits it provides. Much the same as happened at Seattle's Coffee Company in the state of Washington.
What motivates people like you to post such garbage? Do you somehow get paid for this baloney? Or are you bored and have nothing better to do? I'll bet you support Bernie Sanders so you can keep living on the dole and getting money from the people who actually work. You should get a life!! Really.
