Former Secret Service Agent Lambasts Bernie Sanders and His Proposal of ‘Free Stuff’

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino ripped into Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.) in a Facebook post Monday, rebuking the self-described Democratic-socialist and his “free stuff.”

“There is no such thing as ‘democratic socialism,'” Bongino, who was once on the presidential protection team, began. “Democratic socialism is the foolish idea that you can vote away the liberty of others, as long as you do it slowly.”

Bongino went on to list three reasons why he believes there is nothing “democratic” about Sanders.

There is nothing “democratic” about voting to take away the economic liberty of free men and women by taxing away more of their income.

There is nothing “democratic” about voting to take away an individual’s liberty to choose their healthcare options by turning it over to government bureaucrats.

And there is nothing “democratic” about voting away a family’s freedom to choose where they can send their child to school.”

In addition to his blunt statements, Bongino also added a photo depicting “the cost of Bernie’s free stuff.” In total, the info-graph concludes that Sanders’ promise to provide free entitlements to Americans, such as Medicare or college tuition, would total $18 trillion.

“Don’t be a sucker, don’t ‪#‎FeelTheBern‬,” the conservative commentator concluded.
