Bernie wants almost $20 trillion in tax hikes over the next decade.

Oh, you'll feel the Bern alright....good and hard.
“When I was in college, I took a terrorism class. ... The thing that was interesting in the class was every time the professor said ‘Al Qaeda’ his shoulders went up, But you know, it is that you don’t say ‘America’ with an intensity, you don’t say ‘England’ with the intensity. You don’t say ‘the army’ with the intensity,” she continued. “... But you say these names [Al Qaeda] because you want that word to carry weight. You want it to be something.” - Ilhan Omar

You'll get tax hikes (higher tax intake per GDP) under a republican gov. Traditionally the 'righter' the government the higher the government spending and taxing. This is the insidious scam that is neoliberalism. Pretend you're for actual economic liberalism and a smaller government, and be the exact opposite.

It seems to me that both the Republicans and the Democrats are experiencing a lemming-like rush to the polar ends of their own political spectra...

Not really. If you accept that the actual centre of public wants and needs match the political centre then yes. But when you understand that the public centre is well left of the political centre then The Bern isn't that far out there at all.

"left of" in some ways, on some issues; but "well left of" is just your unquenchable optimism shining through... ;)

As an example, public views on the treatment of asylum seekers in Oz... :tea:

Yeah. We certainly have a xenophobic/racist streak in Australia.

Where are the repubs and the rich going to flee to? Ireland perhaps?

There is no need. Their wealth is already safely tucked away in the Caymans, Delaware :shifty: and Switzerland.

If Bernie gets the Dem nod, I might be inspired to actually vote in one last US election :tea:

That's right! The US doesn't recognize dual citizenship, and you haven't formally renounced America yet, so you're still free to come back over to vote or have a baby any time you can spring for plane fare!

I would like the opportunity to renounce my citizenship, but they made it extremely expensive and more difficult as of a couple years ago. $2,350 plus more in tax if you earn over a certain amount (which I don't).
http://money.cnn.com/2014/12/10/pf/taxe ... -renounce/

So as long as I still have to file taxes and they make it really hard for me to leave permanently, I definitely should be able to vote :lay:
