Questions Regarding Sanders’ Policies

Donate and support us on Patreon!

Hey all,

I am a Republican by registration, but I consider myself more of an Independent. I truly don't think Trump has done nearly as horrendous a job as claimed by most left-wing media, but I do think that one term should be enough for him and I'll most likely vote democrat in the coming election. I know that most of Reddit dislikes Trump immensely so I'd really prefer to not discuss him; I just wanted to provide a little political background about myself. I have a few questions about some policies that Bernie embraces that I don't see feasible (or don't necessarily agree with) and I was hoping that you all would be able to enlighten me a little. This is meant to be a political discussion so please don't attack me if my understanding of his policies are incorrect.

  1. Why does a wealth tax seem like a logical policy? In my opinion, a wealth tax is very counter-productive as it will create incentive for the rich to be less rich. If you want to make money off the extremely wealthy, there needs to be a benefit to continue being extremely wealthy. Otherwise, I'd guess the rich will drop their net worth below threshold values or find better ways to hide their net worth. This seems like a parasitic policy to me.
  2. How could the government enact a jobs guarantee in a feasible manner? This strikes me as politician talk that could never realistically work in today's economy, meaning it would never actually be passed or carried out if Bernie were elected.
  3. If Bernie wants to disband fracking and completely turn to different energy sources, why is he completely against nuclear power? If we ban fracking and phase out nuclear energy as energy sources, where will we be able to produce the energy that is lost?
  4. How could we possibly make college free for everyone and cancel all student debt? This seems pretty outlandish and once again, strikes me as politician talk that will not be possible to achieve if Bernie does win the election and take over Office.

If you don't want to address everything, I don't blame you at all lol I know this is a long post. Thanks for taking the time to read it, and again, sorry if I'm wrong on any of his policies. Bernie intrigues me as a candidate but his policies seem like fool's gold to me so try to convince me otherwise and you may win over another Bernie supporter.

Where does Sanders stand on Korea/Japan relations?

Haven't heard him speak too much about foreign politics outside of China or the Middle east tbh. Any new links would be appreciated.

Anyhow, I have seen many of my Korean American friends be doubtful of Bernie Sanders because of his lack of discussion regarding Korea/Japan relations.

If y'all don't already know, following Japanese colonization of Korea (in which they committed thousands of war crimes that are currently still being denied by the literally imperialist Japanese PM), the two countries have maintained a fragile relationship tied together by the US and economic relations. Unfortunately, following deteriorations with the US/Korea and US/Japan relations, Korea/Japan relations have worsened as well, with a trade war occurring between the two countries since July.

It hasn't really helped that Trump has since demanded Korea to pay $ 5 billion more for the military, breaking the prior contract made, and the fact that the US has been behind the scenes supporting Japan throughout the issues. This led to many of my friends supporting Korea allying with China or the EU, and no longer considering the US its main ally.

What's Sanders' position regarding all this?

Is foreign policy, especially in Asia, a priority for Sanders? What has he talked about regarding this? What are his personal view surrounding the topic?

I used to be a passenger on the Train train, but now I've decided to go to the station in Burlington and hop on the Sanders train. Just want to let you guys know that I'm not alone; there are quite a few Trump guys (even if not online) who'd be willing to or are already supporting Sanders. But, fyi, I don't support all the Dem nominees, so you guys at the Democratic party ought to nominate the Senator from Vermont!!!
