“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
We’re getting into the swing of the 2020 presidential elections and ohhh boy. The left is throwing everything they can at the white house (including Socialism). It reminds me of when my granny would test her spaghetti noodles. She’d throw them at the wall to see if they stick. This is the Democrat’s way of picking a presidential candidate. Throw them all at the wall and see who sticks.
A few of these candidates are outspoken Socialists. I’m sorry, “Democratic” Socialists.
Bernie Sanders is the front runner. He ran for president in 2016 but conceded to Hillary Clinton. He sold out his followers for a beach house. There’s Pete Buttigieg, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Beto O’Rourke, Joe Biden, and Cory Booker to name just a few.
It’s kind of scary to think that all of these people are holding onto some ray of hope that socialism will work in the United States when it has never worked anywhere. What’s the famous line you hear everywhere? Oh yeah, it wasn’t done right there. We can do it right here.
Socialism is a big lie (and as mentioned before, the turd f the world). It is not going to save anyone or anything. If anything it will continue to lead to the deaths of millions of people.
So what is socialism?
It’s a political and economic theory of social organization which advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole.
That sounds wonderful, doesn’t it? Everyone is taking care of everything. The “community” is in charge of production and distribution. Who is the community? The government, of course. Does everyone know what happens when the government has full control of everything? Our Republic is gone and we turn into a dictator-controlled, third-world pile of shit. That’s what happens. Oh, but you probably won’t have to worry about anything because the government usually ends up executing millions of its people within a few years and going bankrupt.
But they have a saving grace. A country that has been successful! Sweden! They’re a democratic socialist country, right?
They’ve even come out and told Bernie Sanders to stop calling them socialists because they’re not. They run on a market economy. They are actually very similar to what we currently run on, capitalism. It’s based on supply and demand. The consumer and business determine what prices will be rather than the government determining prices.
A lot of the failings of the government are actually social policies. Public schools. Welfare systems. The legal status of abortion. US Health System. Agricultural. Business. Social security.
If the government can’t make these policies run successfully without worrying about the rest of the country, how can they manage an entire country?
Bernie runs on blaming the 1%. (If you idiots who do support “democratic” socialism don’t realize…heÂ is the 1%.) He wants Medicare for All. A cost of $25-$35 TRILLION dollars over the course of 10 years.
But… we’ll save that argument for our next post in the socialism series.
