To me the issue I have with any socialism is that it creates a lack of desire to Find, Create or build New Wealth.
I think a big part of the problem in America is that people were sold a bill of goods through the 50's-80's where it was believed that all you had
to do was go to College and take a good job, nice and easy a paid vacation, a 401 k, money left over at the end of each week, social security when you
retire, health insurance.
Everything you want, provided for you by the corporation or business, but I see that whole path as a path to dependence, and now when business can't
do the job, instead of go out and create wealth people want the govt, to continue the trend of seeing all their needs met.
America was built on Inventions, Farms, New Industries, Resources... all New Money or money brought from overseas for what we made, created sold, dug
up from the earth etc, etc
and that Brings... Real Answers, the creation of new wealth
We are 8 Trillion in debt, division of that debt differently is going to fail to pay for it, it simply more class division.
What we need is NEW Wealth and Money from overseas via Innovation, New Money, More money, new resources
I see, this as being a time to get rich, every one that wants a JOB, sees this as a disaster, but really from the mind of a real Entrepreneur, a
depression is Great news... competition is down, prices for land are down right now, rents are down as well, people are looking for jobs and new
opportunities, it's easier to recruit and what's more, people are looking for solutions, willing to change, try new things... It's just a great
time to be positive and be inventive and create new wealth
There are so many ways to make money right now, by finding ways to save people money... and new technologies are abundant
1: The Internet... It would cost 100.00- 500.00 to start a web business, and right now... to save gas, it's a good time for people to shop online,
gas prices and saving money will leave people...like all of us online instead of going out as much, why not take advantage of the opportunity?
Virtual Workspace is big, shopping and delivery of entertainment as well as social networking
best of all you reach out of your local economy to the entire world.
2: Services, tons of things people would like to save money on right now, the service industry in all forms is wide open for anyone who invents a way
to save money at traditional services people use that might not be as affordable right now.
3: Industries where you can Make BILLIONS... Farming innovation, Alternative energy particularly biodeisel, alternative health, resource aquisition,
nano technology, Biotech, clean water and air innovation, environmental science in general, information distribution.
To name some off the top of my head
The for those who think really BIG... alternative housing, asteroid mining, space tourism, private space industry, robotics, artificial intelligence,
bionics, genetic engineering.
I'm sorry but knowledge is increasing at a rate that is overwhelming
There is simply no lack of ability to innovate and make New Money now...
I for one am just restarting my life after a divorce and... it's not easy now,
But I have my hands in allot of things (probably too many)
I sell Bio Deisel as a sideline career
Do E-commerce ppc ads
I'm working on Virtual Office space for companies that can't afford the space to put employees
and i'm looking at Online movie distribution as Internet speeds take a step up again in coming years... (difficult sure) But I say, reach for the
stars you should at least crash into the moon on the way.
But what I'm NOT doing, is being scared, i'm not concerned with wanting a job, or having it easy, I know I can't get rich that way.
The only thing I want from rich people, is the chance to talk to them, I have no resentment to those who do well, I admire them, all I ask for, is the
chance to pick their brains so I can identify the traits they have that make them rich...
And this IMHO is the only real answer to this economy, to remain capitalist, to find ways to innovate and do new things that create more wealth, not
redistribute and fight and peck what little there is, because if there was enough, we wouldn't be in debt, I view wealth distribution as futile...
I sit down and wonder what robotic, Nano engineered worms could do in terms of mining for gold and what an AI search engine would be like and who to
help consumers get the best prices online and what kind of movies can be made for a low budget with modern digital software...
But I do not want, anyones money...
It just reminds me of that movie, with Dennis Leary
Dennis is running through the ghetto attempting to catch Keifer Sutherland and others and a gang of kids stops him and he says to them
"You can Take my Money, but you can't TAKE my money"
and that is what socialism proposes for the rich, you CAN take the money of the rich if they make a deal with you and give it, but you can be sure, if
the Government tries to TAKE the money of the rich, they will, send it over seas, bury it, tax fraud, ditch America entirely, invest outside of
America and shelter it,
and realize , these people are very smart or most of them wouldn't be rich and the ones who inherited it, employ very smart people...
We are NOT going to be able to simply TAKE their money no matter what any one proposes or issues into law, they will, of course find a way to find it,
worse, we have a standoff here, it can't turn out good.
But as Entrepreneurs we can take their money, the right way, with their giving it over, by providing good services and innovative things they wish to
purchase or use
