The Child Catcher

Last night during the debate, every time Bernie Sanders was talking about all the wonderful free stuff a Sanders Presidency would provide, I suddenly thought of my parents taking us to see the movie “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” when I was a kid.

I loved that movie.

It was about a widowed inventor and his two little children who, along with the daughter of a candy maker, get mixed up in an adventure with the inventor’s flying car.

In an effort to rescue the inventor’s father, they fly to another kingdom where his father is being kept by a king and queen. When they get there, they discover that there are absolutely no children. None. Turns out the queen isn’t fond of children. So the king enlists the help of a creepy-ass guy with scraggly hair called the Child Catcher. He rounded up all the kids and put them in a dungeon. Naturally, when word of the inventors two children reaches the castle, the Child Catcher is dispatched to lure them out of hiding and capture them.

He arrives in the village with a brightly colored wagon wearing a multi-colored cloak and a top hat festooned in flowers. The Child Catcher dances through the village singing about all the wonderful things he has on his wagon for little children.

The Child Catcher

His rouse works. The inventors two children come out of hiding and let the Child Catcher lead them to his wagon. Which, of course, turns out to be a big cage on wheels.

Trapped in the cage, the children are helpless as the Child Catcher whisks them away to the castle dungeon.

I had nightmares about that creepy-ass guy when I was five. I’m not proud of it, but he scare the living crap out of me.

Now, Bernie Sanders scares the crap out of me in the same way.

He is promising young voters one thing, but he will deliver quite another. And, for whatever reason — ignorance, lack of proper education about socialism and how an economy works, whatever — these young people are falling for his sunshine and lollipops talk about free college, free healthcare, free, free, free!!! And just like the Child Catcher, once he fools them, the reality of what socialism is will have those young people caged in, unable to be free. Because freedom will be willingly surrendered for the false promises of Bernie Sanders and his Free Stuff.

    Young children believe in Santa Claus and I don’t see anything wrong with that but voters are suppose to be mature adults. If you’re a mature adult and think you are going to vote Santa Claus into the office of President of the United States there is something seriously wrong with you. None of these politicians are going to give you anything that belongs to them. They are going to take it away from the people who worked for it and take a large percentage for themselves and maybe give you a little of what’s left over. There’s nothing free in this life. If the government gives you anything it was stolen from someone else.

    This article was written by a moron. Its not free, we’re going to pay for it. We WANT to pay for it. Everybody has to pay taxes, we just want it to go where we want it to go, so were gonna vote about it. Healthcare and education for Americans is an investment. Economic regulation avoids recessions. Paying fair taxes is common sense. The banks have used our bailout money to spring right back up shiny and new with record profits. We want something back. Health, education and family are important to young Americans. People have a problem with federal money funding Planned Parenthood, yet funding endless war and subsidies to mega corporations is somehow righteous? America is way off track and some people want to change things. It is time to start the long painful process of weeding corruption out of our government the best we can. Eventually you will be forced to contribute to society, boo hoo
