In 1985 Wendy’s released a hilarious television ad mocking the Soviet Union.
The ad shows a Russian fashion show where the women all wear the same outfit. This represented the choice selection in a Communist regime.
The ad ends with this:
“Having a choice is better than none.”
This week Democratic candidate for president and open Socialist Bernie Sanders lectured America for having too many choices in deodorant and sneakers.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who is running for the Democratic nomination for president, represents everything wrong with the populist redistributist left. Channeling his inner Hugo Chavez in an interview with CNBC, Sanders bemoaned the choice of deodorant and sneakers in this country, because children are starving. Via CNBC:
You can’t just continue growth for the sake of growth in a world in which we are struggling with climate change and all kinds of environmental problems. All right? You don’t necessarily need a choice of 23 underarm spray deodorants or of 18 different pairs of sneakers when children are hungry in this country. I don’t think the media appreciates the kind of stress that ordinary Americans are working on.
