Thing about Socialism is it really hasn't existed in the devleoped world for YEARS. What is driving every democracy in Europe ahead of the USA in every aspect of "quality of life" is an EQUABLE system of taxation that provides a broad infrastructure to provide things they consider RIGHTS of their citizens.

 

Tax money is used to pay PRIVATE SECTOR businesses who hire and pay PRIVATE CITIZENS to build and operate the infrastructure. The businesses who need that infrastructure to allow the movement of goods and provide qualified employees see greater productivity, lower costs and higher profits. Because of the EQUABLE tax system, they share those profits with the workers who spend the higher wages to increase demand and spur more production and save more to make their lives more secure and retirements more "robust".

 

NOBODY even dreams of the additional taxes being transfered directly to the Undeserving Poor who, tho able, will not work EXCEPT for all the GOPers who insist this is what Government always does with their tax payments.

There is no country in the world where socialism has actally (sic) worked .  LMAO!!!  Is that a fact or just your biased opinion?  If it's a FACT, please provide an actual verifiable reference.  In fact, searching the net, the US isn't even in the top 10 of "best" of most lists....

 

Capitalism is what has made this country great .....a Conservatives "opinion".  and other countries want to emulate. LOL....not really.....

 

2020 election will be Capitalism versus Socialism and this is the fight the Republicans want to have.  Of course they do.....they LOVE the fear-mongering.....it's all they have.



A complex issue is being discussed and, of course, along comes the offensive picture. It is a shame some can't engage on a higher level.


Too bad that out here in the real world - the majority of people in the world are of the opinion that the picture - while a rather critical political parody and satire - still represents what most people in the world feel is a relatively truthful and accurate characterization of trump - in sharp contrast to what trump supporters think of it...

Republicans, conservatives and trump supporters will tell any and every lie necessary to attempt to support their dishonest fascist oligarchy.

I don`t see the other RK bragging about Sociaism being Utopia as you seem to be doing. BTW- As a Air Force Brat living abroad I seen socialism first hand and I will take Capitalism every day of the week.

@ChasKy53Nicely put.

Remember ,nobody ever got a job from a poor person.

This is the best example of the incorrect knowledge of what is Socialism.  I can tellyou who knows Socialism in this message board. and that is Rk. we have discussed socialism in this message board   a lot  a long time ago. he and I understand the good and the flaws of socialism. please request that he imformrs you of what is Socialism and perhaps then you can come back and discuss the subject.
