Bernie Sanders is part of the same group of incumbents in congress that have failed to take the country out of decline in more ways than just the economy.
Bernie Sanders is from Vermont which has a total population of less than 700,000 people. NYC has 9 million people and that is home base for Trump.
Dealing in NYC takes a lot of experience as nothing get done unless you know the right people and even though Trump has failed several times with his fortune, he has always come back up, when most of the people never even come up once.
As long as we have the trained puppets we call politicians, we will have the same results. You can call a cesspool as rose garden, but that doesn't change it.
The appealing thing about Trump is the shake factor. Like the American Revolutionists, Trump isn't playing by the rules of the system.
Trump is definitely a gamble, but the previous presidents have set the bar so low, and their accomplishments even lower, one wonders how we would notice the difference if he failed.
While NYC would align with the Democrat Manifesto, the wealth of the city is derived outside of the political party, and the real control are the unions. A building won't get pass the permit stage until the unions are given the plan for their enrichment.
NYC even has its own Income Tax which is also accompanied by many other taxes. To get a TAXI license costs a couple of hundred thousands of dollars.
Does the saying go,"If you can make it in Vermont, that you can make it anywhere?"
