Many countries have been under the control of socialism. Most ended up collapsing.
Sure it may be working just fine now, but can you say that without a doubt this system can be sustained?
Every Globalist Agenda Book ends in Socialism - read a book...more state control not less!
This is a serious thread topic, it has to be since reactionary americans are so absurd especially over this universal health care bill obama is trying to implement
I think it's funny how people in the U.S.A. are pretty much scared of communism or socialism. Just like we're pumped full of fear about countless other things.
Socialism or communism isn't evil, or wrong. And Capitalism isn't either. But I think most sane people can agree that these three systems have shown not to work at 100%.
What do you mean?
The Netherlands is a fully functional Socialist country, and it works just fine.

I actually voted for Obama twice, because he promised to make affordable healthcare available to all Americans. I have not any personal experience with this new law, nor do I usually worry about what is affordable. I do however feel concerned that people are finding healthcare unaffordable. I had expected low wage earners to have little or no financial obligation for their healthcare. I did not expect anyone to see their premiums increase.
Ron Paul does the brotherly Mason thing!
All talk of socialism this is not so much about advocating for any ism rather than attempting to point out that americans are paranoid of that word. Infact i would rather make this thread a common sense thread about well what i posted it for in the first place the stupidity tying illuminti constantly to socialism which ic in so many in truther libotard places. So let this thread be on Ron and Rand maybe and less about socialists.

No it isn't. Holland is a 'supposedly free market' democracy, like most of the countries in Europe. The political centre of mass is probably most correctly described as 'social liberalism'.
It definitely is not 'socialist'. In the same way that nothing the democrats are doing is really 'socialist' either.
The world champion at controlling medical costs is Japan, even though its aging population is a profligate consumer of medical care. On average, the Japanese go to the doctor 15 times a year, three times the U.S. rate. They have twice as many MRI scans and X-rays. Quality is high; life expectancy and recovery rates for major diseases are better than in the United States. And yet Japan spends about $3,400 per person annually on health care; the United States spends more than $7,000.
This is a serious thread topic, it has to be since reactionary americans are so absurd especially over this universal health care bill obama is trying to implement causing so much chaos in the land of the free.
So do you all believe thus to be the case! If so i gladly admit my membership and secret handshake although I strongly doubt they will since most masons here think i am nuts and would never admit me!.edit on 3-10-2013 by Theprimordialocker because: (no reason given)
