Socialist

The great American fortunes, shipping, steel and railroads in the 19th century, Autos, rubber, oil in the 20th, electronics and attendant software today and grasping, greedy bankers all along the way, were made by graft, corruption, political patronage and the ruthless suppression of legitimate competition. This isn't lying liberal propaganda, just the sad truth about a supposedly free enterprise society.

We're hearing a lot about how Barry O is a socialist maniac, out to redistribute the precious, hard earned wealth of honest Americans. What the fuck does that mean. I worked hard for a long time. Whenever there was an opening, I worked hard to get promoted and often was. Maybe I didn't make a lot but it was more than a lot of people did. I saved almost every penny I ever made. I don't really have very much. Given inflationary trends in a lot less time than it took me to save it, I will have nothing, whether I spend it or not.

I hope Barry redistributes the hell out of the wealth. The people that have most of it either stole it or inherited it and never worked a day in their lives. I'm not stupid enough to think I would get any of the redistributed wealth. I might even be one who gets what wealth he has redistributed. I don't care. It would be worth it just to see.

But tell me this: Why should I, a self-made wealthy person, wish to redistribute my hard-worked for earnings and give it away to some "poor" person that has more gold in her grill, a blackberry, and a better car than myself and is too fucking lazy to get out and get a job, but stays at home and puffs on medical marijuana while I can't enjoy the same luxuries?

I am flat against wealth redistribution. Good for the folk who worked hard for their money. To hell with lazy people - America has too many lazy poor people.

So when will obama work out this so-called redistribution of wealth when he will flatly refuse to fix the problem to begin with?

Like everything in this life, you have to be careful what you want because you may very well get it.

Huntington Beach...I knew I recognized the masthead picture.

As for your post, I'm hoping that, some day, if Obama has his way, he can also figure out how to get the poor who got the redistribution money to make JOBS for the country.

Wealth distribution destroys much more than money can ever mean........

How'd that redistribution work out in Cuba, Soviet Union, North Korea, Zimbabwe, etc.?

Capitalism is a little rough and edgy but it's given even the poor more than socialism ever will.

Even the moderately successful socialist countries in Europe feed off the success of capitalist entities.

I don't think the book on Commie World domination has been completed yet.

Ask the Chicoms.

The Chicoms are moving towards Capitalism the last I heard.

The Russkies used to disappear anyone that crossed them and use deprivation as a goad to increase production.

The Chinese reward hard work and initiative among the people and the economy prospers. It's the smart thing to do. If Moscow had done that they'd still be in business.

Just because the old Commies running China aren't stupid doesn't mean they aren't Commies.

Socialism is theft.
