Socialism can best be describe as a system that distributes the wealth more equally, or where everything is fair. The guy not working as hard will be
just as well off as the guy working his butt off. Sounds good on paper, but in practice it doesn't work. Despite what anyone tells you. It definitely
won't work in America. Here is why.
Ok first America is already semi-socialist. Public Education, Welfare, Unemployment, Social Security, and Union Labor.
Those are all socialist programs. Now despite what red leader tells you Universal Health Care is not free. If he has a job he pays for it.
Universal Health Care is like a 80/20 system, if you need a regular check up or are not in dire need of medical attention then its good, if your in
dire need of medical attention then you don't benefit from it. That is why a lot of people in Canada that can afford it come to America for their
Second, Canada Produces a lot of its own oil, so does those European nations. They also manufacture a lot of their own goods, also the unemployment
rate in those countries are growing.
Third, you will find some of the highest tax burdens in the world in these countries.
Fourth, and the most important, all these countries that have a semi-socialist systems all have population under 100 million.
So what you see is that this semi-socialist system has its down falls that you don't ever hear people talk about, which is high unemployment and it
usually among the younger crowd because why work when the government provides everything for you and do better than some person working his butt off
Obama's policies will be a disaster for America because comparing the USA to these other countries is apples and oranges.
So in short,
USA - 300+ Million people, and a runaway illegal alien problem that drains the resources of the system
Semi-Socialist Nations - Under 100 million population and very little illegal immigration
USA - Imports most of its goods
Semi-Socialist Nations - Manufactures most of its good
USA - lower tax burden
Semi-Socialist Nations - high tax burden
That is a rough comparison of what the real deal is. So the question is do you really want to move too a more socialist nation where the tax burden on
the middle class is going to go up.
