However, with a little research, it is quite evident that the present system is highly favorable to a few who earn a disproportionate amount of money
at the expense of the common people. In a true capitalistic society, General Motors would earn money only one way: By selling you a car that you want
at a price that you are willing to pay.
What we have here is crony capitalism in which Banks are too big to fail when infact they are too big to bail out. As a consequence, the divide
between the haves and the have nots keeps on increasing. The Profits are marginalized to a few while the Losses are socialized to many. The game is
rigged, and you are in the losing team, just like myself.
The United States of America before about 1913 had it's problems, but was more just in many ways than it is now, except to the problems of racism.
The power was given to the banks by a Democrat "Progressive", Woodrow Wilson. We also have to thank Wilson for America's first-ever federal
progressive income tax, or the Revenue act of 1913, aka income tax.
Many years later he apologized to have put the United States into the hands of the Feds/elites who have been in control of the United States, and
because of Wilson a chain reaction was started that put all future Americans into a debt system from which only some can get out, but in which it puts
ALL Americans into the hands of the Feds/elites.
Now, thanks to another Democrat "Progressive" what the Feds/elites stared in 1913, thanks to Wilson is being finished with more draconian Socialist
laws being passed "in the name of the people" when they are only consolidating more power fo themselves, and trying to control us more.
So is Capitalism better than Socialism, and more so the Socialism which we seem to be headed towards to? It was always better, and will always be
better. More so because with Capitalism we are at least FREE, meanwhile the nanny state that is being set up for the eites/feds, claiming '"they
are working for the people" will take away our right to choose, and apparently will change, or even abolish the Constitution, and the Bill of
