Bernie Sanders is just about the epitome of a politician that will talk out of both sides of their mouth to try and curry favor with whoever they need to curry favor with.
When you listen to Bernie talk he tries to come across as a guy that is all for green energy and not using any fossil fuels whatsoever.
Now, don’t get me wrong here; there are situations where using renewable green energy are a good idea.
Things like solar panels on your home or those hand crank emergency radios are great, but those should be a choice and not mandated like the way folks like Bernie Sanders say publicly they want to do.
First of all, we’re a good long way off from green energy to be a long term replacement to anything and there are some things that to be perfectly honest with you I wouldn’t trust being run on a totally electric motor. Like an airplane for starters.
Can you imagine what would happen if an all electric engine airplane suffered an electrical failure? Speaking of airplanes…

“According to federal campaign finance reports, Friends of Bernie Sanders, the senator’s official 2018 Senate campaign committee, spent $297,685.50 with Apollo Jets, a private charter jet service headquartered in New York,” the website VtDigger.com reported. “The report does not break down the number of trips or where they were taken. The check was issued on Oct. 10, according to the report.”
Sanders — who appears likely to run for president again in 2020 — went to nine battleground states to stump for Democratic Party candidates prior to the November mid-term elections. The tour was also considered a way to test support for another presidential run. Sanders ran for president in 2016, finishing behind Hilary Clinton, the Democratic nominee.
Sanders’ cross country tour included stops in Iowa, Nevada and South Carolina, early caucus and primary states in 2020. He also went as far as California to help other candidates.
“This expense was for transportation for the senator’s 9-day, 9-state tour to support Democratic candidates up and down the ballot ahead of Election Day,” campaign spokesman Arianna Jones told VtDigger.com. “This cost covered the entirety of the tour from Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Carolina, Colorado, Nevada, Arizona, California, and back to Vermont,” she said.
