    He loves capitalism. The more successful some people and businesses are, the more there is to confiscate and give away to the non-successful.

    Just to point out:

    1. Higher tax rates are one ways in which entrenched interests seek to forestall competition.
    2. It's not as if the Treasury Department turns away donations.

    Ah the "old we love the poor, give US money!" Song and dance. You can be rich so long as you pretend that you really wish you could give more money to government.

    It still doesn't quite match. Paul left the Republican Party in 1987 to run as a Libertarian for POTUS. He went right back to the party. Bernie didn't become a Democrat until he declared himself a nominee for President. And he's been in politics since 1971.

    I have. It rocks. Income equality for all! Socialist healthcare for everyone! The end of the Koch Brothers as we know them! Labor unions everywhere! Tax the rich and give to the poor!

    It's a capitalist's dream.

    I wish Sanders all the luck in the world. He will need it. Then again, I wished Mike Gravel all the luck in the world 8 years ago.

    If Sanders is ever elected, likely he will end up like JFK.
