Thor Halvorssen was interviewed the other day on not only his own views about Socialism but about Bernie Sanders’ alleged desire to change this county into Socialism. Mr. Halvorssen has mentioned many interesting points used not only in the potential Presidential Candidate’s debate on how he wants to change this country but also from his own family’s experience.
Mr. Halvorssen has mentioned that Mr. Sanders’ opponent has taken monies from dictators of other countries who have even gone as far as to ban the celebration of Christmas. This point is very interesting since taking monies from these types of leaders puts the U.S.A. at the mercy of these dictators. There are also dictators of other countries who have banned the usage of Skype, closely monitor the usage of the Internet of private citizens, and record private phone conversations. Mr. Halvorssen mentioned that the opponent has taken monies from these types of dictators which puts the U.S.A. in a very precarious position. This is one major point to think about before casting the vote in a primary and major election.
Another point that Mr. Halvorssen brought up briefly was his donation to the Sanders’ campaign.
Mr. Halvorssen mentioned about disadvantages to Socialism including that form of government being compared to Communism. Mr. Thor Halvorssen also mentioned that free markets are a must which cannot happen in Socialism as well as the fact that there will be shortages of needed resources. This is also an interesting point to think about.
Mr. Halvorssen mentioned about how the government is run in Venezuela and how the private citizens there are struggling. It was interesting to see the video which is played on YouTube.
Mr. Halvorssen, founder of the Human Rights Foundation, mentioned briefly about his jail experience in another country as well as his other family experiences. The potential candidates running this year for President prove to be all very interesting in their different ways and debates are going in many different directions. There have been public statements made about Mr. Bernie Sanders to be in a Socialistic view. However, many of his supporters state that he is very fair and not a Socialist. The private citizens of the world just have to follow all the speeches and debates and see for themselves who would be the best.
