Socialism is like Robin Hood, steal from the rich and give to the poor.
The problem is, in this country the rich actually work hard for their money and deserve it. That's what made this country so great, "The American
Dream", where anyone can "make it" (get rich) if they try hard enough.
It's the sole reason we became the only super-power in the world.
If we become a socialist nation, there will no longer be "The American Dream" and our nation will slowly wither away and become a third world
nation. No one will have the desire to do anything anymore or to go out and make something of themselves, since their hard earned money would just be
taken from them.
What's the point of going out, starting a business, and making money if the money is just going to be taken away and given to other people? Nothing
Socialist nations have always failed. Look at the Soviet Union. It collapsed, while our capitalist nation kept on truckin'. And now as our nation
moves closer and closer to socialism, look at the state our economy is in.
Obama is a socialist, a very mild one, but still a socialist. He wants to tax the heck out of the wealthy. If he does this, people will no longer want
to try hard and become wealthy themselves, since their money will just be taken any way. So what would be the point in going out and making something
of yourself? Absolutely nothing. With no one going out and forming businesses, hiring employees, etc, etc, our nation's infrastructure and economy
would flat out collapse.
For anyone that believes in Socialism, I dare you to actually move to a Socialist nation and live there. Hmm, no takers? You would rather prefer to
stay here in our capitalist paradise? That's what I thought.
