Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) took his first shot at fellow 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) in an interview that aired Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.”

Said Sanders, “There are differences between Elizabeth and myself.”

“Elizabeth, I think, as you know, has said that she is a capitalist through her bones,” said Sanders.

“I’m not.”

“I am, I believe, the only candidate who’s going to say to the ruling class of this country, the corporate elite: ‘Enough. Enough with your greed and with your corruption.'”

Should President Donald Trump be impeached?

“We need real change in this country,” he went on.

“I mean, Elizabeth considers herself, if I got the quote correctly, to be a capitalist to her bones. I don’t.”

“And the reason I am not,” he said “is because I will not tolerate for one second the kind of greed and corruption and income and wealth inequality and so much suffering that is going on in this country today, which is unnecessary.”

Sanders and Warren have risen to the top of what I call the “former” Democratic Party due to intense brainwashing in lower-level education and college, in my view.

Public teachers’ unions are far more interested in pumping out people who are blindly obedient to the government than in delivering fundamental education.

One of the problems for both Warren and Sanders is that they are not “likable.”

The constant frown on their faces would probably crack if they tried to smile. On the “I’d like to have a beer with this person” scale of one to ten, they would be somewhere below zero, in my opinion.

Bernie, we know you are not a capitalist.

Communists are not capitalists.

As for Warren, she is a big government-loving socialist.

But Americans like and enjoy personal freedom and personal responsibility.

We don’t like socialism.
