If you’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it a thousand times…

Bernie Sanders and Co.’s brand of “democratic socialism” isn’t actually socialism. Instead, it will reflect the socialistic value of Nordic countries like Denmark, Finland, and Norway – not the kind of socialism that is tearing apart countries like Venezuela and the Chinese-controlled region of Hong Kong.

They refuse to see the slippery slope that socialism is precariously perched on…

Which is scary, once you consider the fact that one country’s government is already killing its people—Maduro has ordered the use of lethal force when necessary—and the other is ramping up the violence on their own people—the police attacks on the people of Hong Kong are getting bloodier by the day.

However…

According to Bernie and his acolytes, that would never happen here.

The only difference between what Bernie wants and the capitalism we have now – is that the government will pay for more stuff.

Free healthcare – free college tuition – higher wages…

How is that going to happen? We’re already at a tremendous deficit. How much deeper in debt will these social programs take us?

At some point—Bernie has even admitted this—the government will have to raise taxes on the middle class. Oh… he says just a little bit higher, but nothing that should be debilitating…

But debilitating is relative, isn’t it?

The TRUTH Behind Denmark’s Success

In the Nordic countries that he loves so much—funny, when Trump says he wants immigrants from those countries, he’s labeled a racist, but Bernie wanting to copy their society isn’t—taxes are EXORBITANT.

The middle class – the part of society that tends to drive a nation’s economy – is taxed anywhere from 40% to 60%…

That means somebody making $100K a year only takes home about HALF of what they earn.

Now, they don’t have to pay for healthcare, college educations, or public transportation…

Nor do they have to worry about retirement – and this is what Bernie wants to copy.

However, what Bernie fails to realize is that these social programs are starting to fail…

Not because Denmark isn’t taxing its people enough – it is, probably way more than it should.

No, one of the reasons for both Denmark’s economic prosperity and the government’s lack of funding is the fact that, while they tax the lower and middle classes that 40% – 60%…

Corporations are taxed at an average of 22%.

This makes Denmark an attractive place for companies to set up shop. Their profit margins are HUGE at tax rates this small.

It was what brought so many to Denmark in the first place…

There’s a reason why companies like Integrated Service Solutions and Maersk have their businesses headquartered there.

Low corporate tax rates are a SUREFIRE way to get businesses to come or stay in your country – and their economy has benefitted from it.

An Example Of What NOT To Do

Yes, Denmark’s economic success was built on the back of CAPITALISM – their successful economy came BEFORE (just like ours) and they added their socialistic programs after…

Programs that they’re being forced to scale back as they’re just not working.

If Bernie was using them as the blueprint for what he wants – he may want to look closer. It seems that Denmark is becoming an example of what NOT to do.

You can’t have a welfare state without an abundance of money to take care of the people…

And the more you tax your people and the less you tax your corporations – the more apparent it is that the experiment that has been the Scandinavian brand of socialism just doesn’t work long-term.

Bernie and his cohorts don’t believe that…

They fully believe you can tax a nation into prosperity.

Of course, that’s impossible…

But Bernie also thinks he can become president – so there’s really no end to their delusions.
