The United Socialist States of America..."I don't know what nation you spoofed the acronym for".
Well, what did you expect? Americans making mistakes and asking for people to stand up and help them get out of it? Come on. People want nice cars,
big boats, the best cell phone, the thinnest TV with the highest resolution: in summation, American people, in general, are selfish and shallow. They
want the most for as little as they can get it. And credit card companies and banks are just loving this (well, not so much the latter for more than
obvious reasons). I can't see how you could've not seen this coming. A politician promises MONEY to people (here is a clip from Tim Burton's Batman
that relates to this idea: www.youtube.com...
), what shallow and selfish person WOULD NOT vote for that?
As far as socialism goes, yeah I agree. Giving tax brakes to the poor and not to people making "X>$250K" so that way we can give money to the middle
class...HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMmmmmm......what nation does that remind us of? It is CERTAINLY NOT the one who we allied with in World War
II to defeat Hitler ONLY TO MAKE THEM THE NUMBER ONE FEAR OF THE WHOLE WORLD
soon after. Certainly not them. But here is the thing: We
saw communism as a fear because we allowed people to tell us it was to be feared. SOCIALISM (the acutal
system that the Union of Soviet
Replublics was under) brought a HUGE nation from dirt poor to being able to make nuclear weapons, something that only the US (and Nazi
Germany had we let them alone) was able to do. So, socialism DOES work....oh wait, there is the catch: you can't fear it. So yeah, in general: Middle
class America will embrace socialism if it means they have more money to feed their selfish and shallow ambitions.
I wonder if each state will have a S.S.A following their name (haha S.S.A. backwards is A.S.S.) once we fully embrace socialism? Ex. Nevada S.S.A.
Oh, another food for thought, what will happen to North and South Dakotas and Carolinas, along with regular and West Virgina? Will they merge them
together to make Dakota S.S.A, Carolina S.S.A, and Virignia S.S.A., respectively, or will they keep them seperate? They're fun things to think about
when you are accepting the turn to socialism this nation is making.
