Chuck on the right side
THIS IS A BLOG THAT TRIES TO APPEAL TO THE AVERAGE CONSERVATIVE CITIZEN AND HAS NO AGENDA OTHER THAN TELLING THE TRUTH AS WE SEE IT.
To listen to the Democrat candidates for president , you'd think that our economy is in the tank and must be saved by an infusion of “Socialism”. Does anybody in their right mind really believe that garbage? The answer is “YES”, by some misinformed economic illiterates (mostly Millennial's) who by almost 50% think that socialism is the preferred system over capitalism.
This false conclusion shows us the deficiency in our educational system – students are graduating with a woeful ignorance of economics by being brain-washed by an oversupply of left-wing professors and school administrators. How else can you explain why so many people are wanting to get rid of the economic system handed down by our founding fathers, that has rocketed the U.S.A. to be the pre-eminent economic power of the world.
Ole Bernie Sanders (and his cohorts Elizabeth Warren, Corey Booker, Kamala Harris Beto O'Rourke etc.) is valiantly trying to promote his form of socialism as the alternative to our system of capitalism. He acts like he is running for a third grade class president instead of the president of the United States. He is promising all kinds of “freebies” for everyone (free college, paying off student debt, a government mandated $15 minimum wage, a government job for anyone unemployed, and the real killer, Medicare for all) in order to get votes, but he never says how he would pay for all this government largess. Even though socialism has never succeeded wherever it has been tried, he says he can make it work (maybe he needs Obama's magic wand). Is this a case of ole Bernie using rose-colored glasses or is he just ignorant of basic economics?
Well, what is the definition of Bernie's socialism - “Socialism requires the intervention and control of the marketplace by an overwhelmingly centralized government. It penalizes high achievers, rewards laziness, and stifles choice. Incentives for people to succeed financially is scrapped under this economic system”. In the words of Sir Winston Churchill, “Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery”.
The “Democrat Socialists” (as Bernie likes to label himself) never point out the most recent failures of Socialism in Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, and most of the African and Muslim countries. All are classified as economic “basket cases”, and most all are ruled by vicious dictators who have been robbing their countries treasuries while many of their citizens are poor and starving. That fact points up the fallacy of the socialist system as compared to the modern up-to-date countries that espouse capitalism.
So, when some of these brain-washed heads full of mush try to convince you of the benefits of socialism, just mention the facts listed in this article. It might be an exercise in futility as many of them are blinded to the facts by their loony liberal ideology, but might be worth a shot.
