Call it an "economic model", call it a form of government, call it what you like.
I see it as a barrel. Inside the barrel are apples (politicians, people).
The apples are rotten. So some actually think that putting rotten apples in a different container will get us great and wonderful apples.
Idiots like Bernie Sanders and his loyal followers are convinced that if you put rotten apples in a different barrel (socialism) then the apples will
The only way you are going to get great apples, is NOT by replacing the barrel, but by REPLACING THE APPLES!
That's what I see with all this talk about socialism, capitalism, communism, isms, isms, isms.
Everyone thinks that their "barrel" will make the apples great. But they ignore the fact that you have to have "good apples" to begin with, or
else you'll end up with rotten apples and people blaming the barrel again.
Put it another way. . . . if I pour milk in a martini glass, it's not going to be a martini no matter how hard I want it to be. And it's not the
fault of the glass, it's the element of what the glass contains.
You want real change?
Don't change the container and hope for something different on the inside.
Change the inside.
Start with term limits for everyone. Congress, local, state, federal, Supreme Court . . . . . everyone.
If we start changing what the barrel contains, then we won't be looking for different containers.
Anyway, just an opinion piece, a rant, an observation.
