Bernie Sanders is a Communist. Communism goes beyond socialism in that it not only seeks to control all economic aspects of a society, it also seeks to control all activities of the people including how they live their lives and how they think. Karl Marx explained that his desired classless society would be a totally conforming society; all people must think and act alike and hold the state as divine. In order to accomplish this, Marx and Lenin understood that the family unit must be destroyed, and the worker unions must become the dominant unit of society. This was the predominant theme of Marx, Lenin, and Sanders.
When Bernie Sanders went to the Soviet Union for his honeymoon, he commented on the glories of communism and how orderly and beneficial the bread lines were. He apparently also feels the control of the state over the lives of its people through strong and mandatory labor unions is also glorious. Sanders, who acclaims all things communist, now has come out with a plan to force unions in America, despite the fact that many American workers wish to opt out of the union and specifically go to “right to work” states. A side comment; isn’t it interesting that states that allow one to work without belonging to a union are called “right to work.” I think that is very descriptive because in those situations you receive based on production and not mere existence as advocated for by those like Marx, Lenin, and Sanders and practiced by unions.
This is the plan of Sanders to unionize the United States and truly bring about his belief so aptly stated by Marx: “from each according to their ability to each according to their need.”
Elimination of Secret-Ballot Elections to unionize;
Government to force union contracts on newly unionized companies and their employees;
Elimination of ALL ‘Right-to-Work’ states, forcing all unionized employees to pay union fees or be fired;
Classify independent contractors and supervisors as “employees” for the purpose of unionization and other workplace entitlements;
Allow unions to unionize franchisors and franchisees as a single employer;
Give federal government workers the ability to strike;
Put state labor relations under federal control;
Force companies that acquire or merge with another company to accept the prior employer’s union contract;
“Blacklisting” employers from any federal contracts if they engage in practices the Sanders Administration deems to be anti-union or anti-worker;
Ban hiring new (permanent) employees to replace striking workers during economic strikes;
Create Wage Boards to “set wages, benefits and hours across entire industries, not just employer-by-employer”;
Allow unions in labor disputes to target an employer’s customers and suppliers (called a “secondary boycott”);
Give unions ‘equal time’ by requiring companies to disclose anti-union information they disseminate to workers and provide for equal time for organizing agents
Enact “Medicare for All,” then require companies with union health plans to “enter into new contract negotiations overseen by the National Labor Relations Board….all company savings that result from reduced health care contributions from Medicare for All will accrue equitably to workers in the form of increased wages or other benefits.”
Under Sanders’ Medicare for All plan, “the plan will ensure that union-sponsored clinics and other providers are integrated within the Medicare for All system, and kept available for members.”
In the United States today, the fact is, if you support any aspect of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Party, you are supporting an agenda that wishes to take the United States down “The Road to Tyranny” or from a free and independent individualist society to a tyrannical society that is collectivism (Marxism, communism, socialism, progressive, Democrat – all virtually the same).
