Skip to comments.Sanders Calls for “National Wealth Registry” [semi-satire]
Posted on 10/01/2019 10:08:14 AM PDT by John Semmens
Democratic presidential contender Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt) called for a National Wealth Registry to be established as part of his plan to eliminate billionaires in America. Just as a registry of gun owners is necessary if we hope to confiscate privately owned firearms, a list of who is wealthy must be established so we can transfer this undeserved money to the government for redistribution.
A key part of Sanders plan includes a ban on taking funds out of the country. Were not saying that those targeted for expropriation cant leave, he said. But their money has to stay here so the government can put it to better use than the capitalistic profiteering and selfish greed that have been the primary activities of these social parasites.
The Senator expressed confidence that the expertise of the IRS and comprehensive surveillance by the NSA will interdict schemes to try to sneak money across the border. We will redirect ICE from the task of keeping people out to keeping people in until they have surrendered all their assets. The walls wrongly built to prevent the needy from claiming their fair share of Americas wealth will help ensure that the rich cannot abscond with what doesnt rightly belong to them.
In related news, Sanders called a poll finding showing that 51% of young voters fear that humanity could be wiped out in 15 years excessively negative. I have long held that humans are the biggest threat to the planet of any species. I have done my part by not fathering any children, that I know of. If everyone had been as insightful and unselfish as me we wouldnt have to fear the extinction of humanity. Wed be well on our way toward achieving it.

People need to call this proposal what it is - A financial Iron Curtain.
To do this, he has to take the guns away. Take the guns away and there will be a revolution seen not since 1776.
Clearly, America has a desperate need for “Common Sense Socialism Control.”
NO socialism in our schools or government buildings.
A background check to prevent convicted felons and the mentally ill from becoming socialists.
Registration of socialists, both to be openly socialist and to conceal the fact that they are socialists. States could collect a registration fee of up to $500 annually. Registration would be provided by the Sheriff on a “may issue” basis.
All socialist documents must be kept in a locked safe, or in a locked safe in the vehicle trunk when being transported.
When detained by a Law Enforcement Officer, socialists must present their registration card and identify themselves as a socialist.
Didnt Lenin and Stalin do something like this in Russia?
Lets be done with this Comminist fool, Sanders.
Don’t give the loon any ideas!
The “wealth registry” is Bernie’s idea.
I merely helped out by explaining his rationale.
Sounds like they are destined for the ovens. The way to solve America's billionaire problem.
Theft. That’s what this is. A Theft Registry: Who to steal from.
