Sanders didn't have the ability to call off Putin's dogs.

And asahi, I can appreciate a good crazy idea. Suggesting a crazy idea might not actually get it implemented, but it can still get people thinking in different ways, and maybe coming up with variants that aren't so crazy and which actually can get implemented, and maybe you even eventually end up with something very much like the crazy idea in place. But "let's pay people money to solve problems" isn't a crazy idea. It'd the exact opposite of a crazy idea. It's an idea that's so sane that everyone, in both parties even, already does it. Suggesting it doesn't make any progress; it just brands you as being completely clueless about how the world already works.
