I am not a fan of socialist, be it free healthcare like Obamacare. Reason being that nothing is free, free healthcare has a hidden price and someone needs to pay the bills. Those who argue the rich are greedy and we can tax them to fund social benefits is no different from the 1950’s Communist in Russia and China.
🤣😍😂 10 Karl Marx Quotes On Communism Manifesto And Socialism Theories
Take their land and distribute it to the poor because the rich are greedy, what happens next? Just like how Zimbabwe confiscates the white’s land and gives it to the poor blacks – extreme poverty with no productivity. Reason being that when we take away the risk and reward system, it essentially rewards the lazy and punishes those that worked hard for their fruits of labor. Yes, some people are born poor and worked hard yet still poor, that’s unfortunate.
Capitalism doesn’t guarantee the end of poverty, it guarantees equal opportunity. Socialism on the other hand guarantees equal wealth by taking most of it from the rich and giving it to the poor. What happens is, the rich will either migrate or give up working hard since there is no difference.
This can be seen with the medical innovation and breakthrough by the US vs Europe. Europeans have free universal healthcare, but by pretty much any metric, the US has destroyed the competition when it comes to total impact in medical research and innovation.
Why is that so? Doctors are allowed to practice their medical profession with passion and be rewarded based on the risk taken. Private companies will invest in R&D because the market will reward them with money. Those with socialist medicine and healthcare, why take the risk when there are no rewards? Sure, Canada, Europe, Australia and etc have free medical healthcare, the question is, without the medical breakthrough done by the Americans, can they provide the medicines?
Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. – Winston Churchill
The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other peoples’ money. – Margaret Thatcher
Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word, equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude. – Alexis de Tocqueville
The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries. – Winston Churchill
Socialism in general has a record of failure so blatant that only an intellectual could ignore or evade it. – Thomas Sowell
Socialism states that you owe me something simply because I exist. Capitalism, by contrast, results in a sort of reality-forced altruism: I may not want to help you, I may dislike you, but if I don’t give you a product or service you want, I will starve. Voluntary exchange is more moral than forced redistribution. – Ben Shapiro
The reason this country continues its drift toward socialism and big nanny government is because too many people vote in the expectation of getting something for nothing, not because they have a concern for what is good for the country. – Lyn Nofziger
Yes, in socialism the rich will be poorer – but the poor will also be poorer. People will lose interest in really working hard and creating jobs. – Thomas Peterffy
Socialism means slavery. – Lord Acton
In practice, socialism didn’t work. But socialism could never have worked because it is based on false premises about human psychology and society, and gross ignorance of human economy. – David Horowitz
A socialist is someone who has read Lenin and marx. And anti-socialist is someone who understands Lenin and Marx. – Ronald Reagan
The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not. – Thomas Jefferson
If socialists understood economics, they wouldn’t be socialists. – Friendrich Von Hayek
Good conservatives always pay their bills. Unlike socialists, who just run up other people’s bills. – Margaret Thatcher
Socialism means slavery. – Lord Acton
From a man who inherited wealth and supported the Slave owning Confederacy.
If you tolerate slavery your a scumbag.
Chances are if you bad at grammar, you are bad at everything.
it is you’re NOT your
Try proof reading before you press post. Or maybe you don’t understand the difference between you’re and your. Apostrophe lives matter.
Nobody in America should tolerate slavery .. you’re right to call out hypocrisy . Too bad that person is not alive today to see the error of their ways. The fact that we as a nation have had that history to learn and change from says a lot about us. I’m Just wondering how many other nations in this world have worked as hard as America has to bring equal rights to all humans.
Because Thomas Sewell probably “promotes and agrees with slavery”???
You are not very smart, are you?
Lord Acton abhorred slavery. He also abhorred centralized power, which is the basis for his support of the south, not slavery. To say he “supported the slave-owning South is intellectually dishonest, or at best ignorant.
Your argument is unfortunately based on misconception, because in fact Lord Acton deplored slavery. As is often the case with intelligent people, his position was complicated. From “Lord Acton” by Tricia Wallace: “Slavery was obviously a gross violation of freedom for Acton. Despite this, Acton mournfully lamented the surrender of the South and the centralization of the U.S. government as great violations of liberty.” Apparently, it was his belief that attitudes were changing in the South concerning slavery and if their power had not been jeopardized, the Southern states would have continued on their path to emancipation. Whether he was right or wrong on that point, it would be quite inaccurate to imply that Lord Acton was in favor of slavery.
socialisim and those in any nation that are in favor of it = should be sent to hell or back to a communist country including all of these commie fools
Do to others as you would have done to you – “Vote Labour”.
Thats bs that human nature forbids people from working without getting money from it. Do you really think that the USSR was not extremely productive?
Jackson Roberts. They were but just to meet quotas, while they’re products, such whales, were left to rot on the docks, because there wasn’t enough demand for them. you can centrally control an economy.
USSR was not. It was extremely unproductive and inefficient. Believe me. I know, I used to live there that times :(
There were many economic problems for the Soviet Stalinist system. One very general problem was the lack of incentives for productivity. As one Soviet citizen said. “They pretend to pay us and we pretend to work.”
The Russian economist, Grigory Yavlinsky, who ultimately became an important advisor to Mikhail Gorbachev, became convinced to the need for reform when he investigated the low productivity in the Soviet mines. He found the miners were not working because they had no incentives to work. Said Yavlinsky: “The Soviet system is not working because the workers are not working.”
That is socialism on the extreme end. Socialism only works when the collective society respect it and knows they have to work for the greater good. If a small portion of the society is selfish, socialism fails.
Which if you are getting something for nothing. Why work?
Human nature is a tricky thing. Some have ethics and some pretend to, but they don’t. So you have those that won’t abuse the system, albeit a small percentage and the many that WOULD because…
Let’s be honest, they never gave a damn in the first place. They faked it to make it and once they got it, BOOM right back to what they are st their core.
Lazy and ungrateful.
“Socialism only works when the collective society respect it and knows they have to work for the greater good. If a small portion of the society is selfish, socialism fails” Thus the vast chasm between socialist thought and the reality of human nature. If a only a small portion of the society is selfish, that society must consist of angels and unicorns, for it cannot consist of human beings.
The reason our government is confused, they did this! The so called leaders haven’t got a glue. They stand there and tell Americans what they are going to do us and our Country. Well the better listen to we the people who PAY them for nothing. All the problems they started saying that the American people have had it too good, coming from a loser that was paid for 54 years doing nothing as Senator or Vice President. STOP bullying us as tell us that we can’t have private health Insurance and we will be Socialist..We!l asshole that is democrats we will not stand up for this. Why don’t Biden, Harris, Pelosi, Schumer and that ignorant O-Cortez and the Obama and Clintons get the he’ll out of Washington and go to the Deep States and form your own Country.

Go to CALIFORNIA and you can of the illegals to live with you in your own Country! We are sick of the fake news the way you lied about the election. We should have all the dead vote for us.

Never broke the LAW never been arrested and don’t own any guns. Just a very old lady that has seen and to much u’ll hit. THANKS
History shows us that Socialism never worked and it will never work.
