Last time I checked the Internal Recenue Service field agents carried guns and if you don't pay up they take your home, personal belongings and put you in jail. Is this Democracy? My wife and I pay about thirty percent of our income to taxes and all i can see that the feds give is a military. I support our military whole heartedly. But there is rampid corruption in our government. The problem is the government has too much power and they think that we are here to serve the government instead of the government to serve the people. I ask again is this Democracy?

Communism is not Socialism. Socialism is not greedy, it is like sharing, and means that the poor people who have nothing may have something, and that rich people with private jets may have to give those up. Capitalism is greedy and unfair to those that struggle, especially in today's economy.

Why oh why did this thread make people get testy?

Oh, haha, pinky, I didn't notice that was you.
Yeah, we've talked about this before on U2U.
Pretty much, let's stop being greedy. Taxes aren't directly helping anyone. Socialism has a horrible reputation, and unlike communism, is more realistic and workable.

Why are people afraid to try something new?

The reputation that socialism has under in the western block has been lying manipulation of the far right for decades here, while the education system in the US has been diminished so IQs fall. But Norway, and the Scandinavian countries have been shining their wonderful incredible lights for years. Their reputations and honor in managing their affairs with social justice and proportional democracy is incredible. After taxes, with the costs of important things like housing and food controlled, they have more money in their pockets on average than we do. They have incredible health systems and educational systems and have the highest education and highest standards of in the world. Any sane person would beg to be taken in there as a landed immigrant.

To top all of this, Norway has proven that less trauma = less crime and almost has a murder rate closest to zero percent.



Its child abuse to raise your children anywhere else.
