Re: “Bernie Sanders isn't going anywhere

Hi, I am from Norway :)

What is this Norwegian socialism that Bernie talking about? Is that an ideolgoy you should fear?

The success of the so-called “Nordic Model” is commonly attributed to factors such as income equality, a high level of trust, high willingness to pay tax, which is tightly coupled to strong social security (health, education), a blend of governmental regulations and capitalism, and cultural homogeneity.

Such a basis in society leads to loyal citizens who are willing to contribute voluntarily for the common good.
How does one create people in a community who feel confident in themselves? By giving workers a decent salary and good working conditions.
When we hear about private health insurance, we shake our heads and wonder if it's true, and what kind of state that does not have free health care for its citizens.

Whay I want to say all this ?
Because I want the ordinary workers in the US will get the pleasure of experiencing living in a fair system that provides equal opportunities for all ! I move freely around ,without with a gun . I dont lock my car. I got a University education at the best school for free.

Can you be rich here in Norway?, do we have our own «american dream"? Yes, indeed ! it is here you can achieve it , ironically! Unfortunately the poverty is passed on from parents to children in the system you have in USA now.( that started in the early 80s )
All people should have the right to make a career no matter what background they come from, thats the basic in this ideology.
In short, there is no reason to fear Bernie's political ideology. It is tested with great success here in Scandinavia for decades

Good luck with the election
