The question is not are they going to nominate a socialist, the question is how big of a socialist ;)
Yeah, socialist.... Scary word - if you're afraid of words. But, let's delve deeper. In the sense that you mean socialist, I'm a socialist too, and so are you.
You're probably fine with the $$ billions of taxpayer money Trump gave away to farmers last summer.. That's as socialistic as you get. You're probably fine with Social Security too. That's socialism. It even says so in its name..
Truth is, you're afraid of Soviet style socialism wherein the government OWNS the means of production.. As a capitalist, I am too. But, that's NOT the kind of socialism Bernie is bringing to the table.. It's the kind of socialism that gives government money away to farmers when they're hungry.. It's the kind of socialism fire departments adhere to when they put out ANYBODY'S fire even if they don't pay taxes...
In fact, Bernie is a raging capitalist just like you and me.. He SELLS books in the free market to earn a living. He OWNS waterfront property. He TRAVELS to and fro on private jets, and he's tickled pink that you WORK for a free market company..
He just doesn't see the difference between a fire burning in your house, and one burning in your body.. I don't either.
Don't be such a fraidy cat.
So genius why not get a 15 year mortgage according to your Democrat math.
Hello poochy boy:
A 15 year mortgage has a higher payment.. With a 30 year mortgage you have the CHOICE of making a higher payment, but with a 15 year, you don't..
Now, fetch this stick.
excon, mortgage genius
Why do we need 30 year mortgages? If homes could be paid off in a shorter amount of time, maybe we wouldn't have a homeless problem.
We don't "need" them.. We just "buy" them because we don't know any better..
But, you're not stuck with paying for 30 years.. By making ONE extra payment a year, you can shorten a 30 year mortgage to around 17 years, and save 100's of $1,000's in interest.
It works because in the beginning, 99% of your payment goes toward interest.. But, if you make extra payments, those payments go directly toward reducing your principal.
