Senator Bernie Sanders - Complete Interview
An interview on economic policy, taxes, government and rights. Senator Sanders argues that you can delegate rights that you do not have.
Sanders (D-VT) revealed his true character and unwillingness to reason. He was so intent on evading the questions that he denied elementary economic facts. For instance, when asked "Is it necessary for the productivity of the individual worker to increase in order for general economic prosperity to occur?" Sanders responded: "Obviously not!"
His evasive, unresponsive, and irrational manner progressed to the point that the interviewer had to ask him over five times whether "Individual citizens ever had the right to initiate physical force against other citizens." After claiming to have answered the question several times, when in fact he had not, he then admitted implicitly that he had not answered by requesting some clarification in order to answer. When he finally answered he said that the citizens never had that right. Notwithstanding, he claimed that they had delegated that right to the government, i.e., that they had delegated a right they never had! (See last five minutes of interview.)
At that point he used his voting responsibility as an excuse to avoid discussing the aforementioned non sequitur, to discontinue the interview altogether, and to renege on his promise to do an interview on minimum wage. His exit was a perfect Jekyll and Hyde.
