Broken Compass

Can someone tell Bernie Sanders’ campaign managers that they could be accused of false advertising?

An ad released earlier this year has surfaced again. Using the song, “America,” by Simon & Garfunkel as its theme, the ad exhibits the delusion of Sanders’ ideology. The song’s phrase, “They all come to look for America,” doesn’t refer to a search for a socialist, third-world country, as Bernie’s vision would achieve. Subjects in the song are looking for the America of opportunity, Bernie, not the land of dependency you desire, your “utopia.”

America’s “true north” has nothing to do with your Marxist vision, Senator Sanders. You should recalibrate your compass.
