I find it disgusting that adults would get on here and treat one another the way you do! We all want what we think is best for OUR country. We should not let politics divide us as they have. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. If your candidate does not win, then vote again in 4 more years, but don't act like a bunch of teenagers. Actually I have 2 teenagers and they act more grown up then most of these posters!

Obama has divided the nation, but it is the way to bring in socialism easier. Control the masses. Keep people out of jobs, dependent on BIG GOVERNMENT, and dissatisfied. All going right along for four years with plans for reelection. This is how it is all across America and was part of the plans that took off with Obama in 2008.

Socialism IS NOT a bad thing dumb butt. Do you want to do away with social security? medicare? Who is going to care for the elderly? The roads you drive on are a form of socialism. Want everyone to build their own road? Schools are socialism. Your an scared baby. Grow up. Pay taxes. Be an adult.

I'm a LIBERAL democrat. If it wasn't for people like me you would be working 72 hours a week for minimum wage with no overtime. No health insurance. No water systems. No transportation . Yes us LIBERALS like to spend for the common good, but I bet you use the roads, water, schools, job protections? Go ahead, vote R & R. Let's see how you like it in a few years.

America tends not to appreciate being told to give their hard earned dollars away to unjustified causes and programs put on by the government, nor do they like being told how to live their lives in general which is why socialism is very much opposed, because it goes completely against the grain of the majority.

Although socialism is supposed to created a classless society, in actuality there is a ruling group. Socialism creates oppression.

Socialism, when compared to capitalism, rewards neither hard work nor technological innovation.

Socialism is counter the philosophies on which the United States was founded.

Socialism generally produces societies and economies that are less productive.

Socialism

An economics professor at Texas Tech said he had never failed a single student before but had, once, failed an entire class. That class
had insisted that socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer. The professor then said ok, we
will have an experiment in this class on socialism.

All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A. After the first
test the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy.
But, as the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted
a free ride too; so they studied little.. The second test average was a D! No one was happy. When the 3rd test rolled around the average was an
F.

The scores never increased as bickering, blame, name calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else. All failed, to their great surprise, and the
professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great; but when
government takes all the reward away; no one will try or want to succeed.

Could not be any simpler than that....

Socialism...

It is a system they preys on the STRONG. The greatness of this nation is that individuals can rise as far as their talent and hard work can take them.

Socialism presumes that IT is ALMIGHTY and in its infinite wisdom should be our mommy and daddy and redistribute the wealth by TAKING from those who work and GIVING to those who won't.

1) It has all been tried and proven that it does not work. Margaret Thatcher is quoted saying, "The problem with Socialism is that eventually, you run out of OTHER people's money."

2) When you take it a step further, it becomes Communism. Humans want to be free and the United States of America was founded on the freedoms of MEN. Not Government. Our Founding Fathers started this country to get away from the Church of England and the Tyranny of the autocratic King. When a country has to put a wall and fences with razor wire at the border, along with armed guards to KEEP ITS CITIZENS IN the country, well, can't you see that it doesn't work either?

3) A Russion reporter was walking down a country road when he came upon some workers in fields, harvesting crops. On one side of the road, men were sweating and toiling as they loded their wheelbarrows up with fresh vegetables to be taken into the market in town. Just across the road, a group of workers were sitting in the shade, smoking cigarettes and joking around with each other.

The reporter asked, "Why aren't you working like those other men?"

The worker replied, "I make the same amount of rubles whether I break my back in the fields or if I sit here and smoke cigarettes. So, I will sit here and smoke cigarettes."

Those are three concrete examples of why Socialism DOES NOT WORK.

I thought I would never be able to experience what the ordinary, moral German felt in the mid-1930s. In those times, the savior was a former smooth-talking rabble-rouser from the streets, about whom the average German knew next to nothing. What they did know was that he was associated with groups that shouted, shoved, and pushed around people with whom they disagreed; he edged his way onto the political stage through great oratory and promises. Economic times were tough, people were losing jobs, and he was a great speaker. And he smiled and waved a lot. And people, even newspapers, were afraid to speak out for fear that his "brown shirts" would bully them into submission.

And then he was duly elected to office, with a full-throttled economic crisis at hand [the Great Depression]. Slowly but surely he seized the controls of government power, department by department, person by person, bureaucracy by bureaucracy. The kids joined a Youth Movement in his name, where they were taught what to think. How did he get the people on his side? He did it promising jobs to the jobless, money to the moneyless, and goodies for the military-industrial complex. He did it by indoctrinating the children, advocating gun control, health care for all, better wages, better jobs, and promising to re-instill pride once again in the country, across Europe, and across the world.

He did it with a compliant media - Did you know that? And he did this all in the name of justice and... change. And the people surely got what they voted for.(Look it up if you think I am exaggerating.) Read your history books. Many people objected in 1933 and were shouted down, called names, laughed at, and made fun of. When Winston Churchill pointed out the obvious in the late 1930s while seated in the House of Lords in England (he was not yet Prime Minister), he was booed into his seat and called a crazy troublemaker. He was right, though as history has PROVEN.

Don't forget that Germany was the most educated, cultured country in Europe. It was full of music, art, museums, hospitals, laboratories, and universities. And in less than six years - a shorter time span than just two terms of the U.S. Presidency - it was rounding up its own citizens, killing others, abrogating its laws, turning children against parents, and neighbors against neighbors. All with the best of intentions, of course. The road to Hell is paved with them.

The only people that have anything to gain in a socialistic goverment is the goverment. If the goverment lets you have something, they can also take it away. Laugh now, cry latter. Be stupid now pay the price latter.

"A social scientist who understands human nature will not dismiss the vital roles of free choice, voluntary cooperation and moral integrity -as liberals do," he says.

"A political leader who understands human nature will not ignore individual differences in talent, drive, personal appeal and work ethic, and then try to impose economic and social equality on the population - as liberals do. And a legislator who understands human nature will not create an environment of rules which over-regulates and over-taxes the nation's citizens, corrupts their character and reduces them to wards of the state - as liberals do."

Dr. Rossiter says the liberal agenda preys on weakness and feelings of inferiority in the population by:

a.. creating and reinforcing perceptions of victimization;
b.. satisfying infantile claims to entitlement, indulgence and compensation;
c.. augmenting primitive feelings of envy;
d.. rejecting the sovereignty of the individual, subordinating him to the will of the government.

"The roots of liberalism - and its associated madness - can be clearly identified by understanding how children develop from infancy to adulthood and how distorted development produces the irrational beliefs of the liberal mind," he says.

"When the modern liberal mind whines about imaginary victims, rages against imaginary villains and seeks above all else to run the lives of persons competent to run their own lives, the neurosis of the liberal mind becomes painfully obvious."

In the late 19th century, the terms "socialism" and "communism" were often used interchangeably.

"Pure communism" is a term sometimes used to refer to the stage in history after socialism, although just as many communists use simply the term "communism" to refer to that stage; the term is synonymous with "Full communism".
