How did you go from being a Libertarian to being a Bernie supporter?
Jeff - the short answer is, I grew up. When i used to post here as a Libertarian i was in college. Since then i've seen a lot, done a lot, and watched this country circle the drain.
Libertarians have no example of a nation run via their philosophy, save for a few lawless third world ---------. That's not the type of place I want to live. Meanwhile there are plenty of successful democratic socialist nations which have better standards of living than the US, better healthcare on virtually every measure, better education, and happier people.
I already pay a sickening amount in taxes, but what really sickens me is the places that money goes. I'd gladly pay 10-20% more and see it invested here, in our people.
Anyhow, i hope all is well with you. Maybe i'll be around more.
