Liberal politicians have always had a tough time selling their agenda. Lecturing Americans about how foolish they are to want to control their own economic futures, how foolish they are to dare to want to control their own healthcare decisions and how foolish they are to want to choose where to send their children to school has always been a tough sell.

It's so hard that liberal politicians spend small fortunes on political consultants who teach them various political strategies and tactics to win elections by never telling people their true positions.

The campaign of Bernie Sanders is a near perfect example of this. Sanders has promised his supporters a truckload of "free" government programs and initially expressed support for tax rates as high as 90% to pay for his proposals.

That support evaporated almost immediately when his endorsement of such an outrageous expansion of government became public. Clearly some high-priced political consultant got to Sanders and told him that he needs to learn to lie better.

I can imagine the conversation going something like this:

"Hey Bernie, we really need to stop the talk about that 90% tax thing, we can't really tell people that the 'free' stuff we're planning to give them is paid for out of their wallets."
