The problem with socialism/communism in a nutshell.

Rate this topic

90 posts in this topic

In a system where the government takes more and more of what you make as you get more and more successful, there comes a point where it no longer behooves people to be successful.

 

And when everyone gets to suck the government tit even if they do nothing productive at all - paid for by those who are, a phenomenon I like to call "the dead race" begins.

 

Did you ever notice that the object of every race is to see who goes the fastest. Did you ever notice that there is no type of race at all in which the object is to see who can go the slowest?

 

If you tried to have a race to see who could go the slowest, you'd have a line of racers as far as the eye could see, frozen in time, refusing to move and looking for all intents and purposes like they're in rigor mortis. You have "the dead race". Nothing happens. Nothing will ever happen. No one will move. And ultimately, the object will be to see who drops dead last and the last person to starve to death without ever leaving the the starting blocks wins.

And the first time the republicans in the senate try a filibuster and act as obstructionists, I hope someone reminds you of this description, because it fits that scenario perfectly.

No it doesn't. Think about it some more. Or maybe more appropriately put... just think about it.

Ah, yes it does. You described it perfectly. Funny that you didn't even understand the implications of your own post.

View Postcan you comprehend anything beyond GOP talking points?

 

Yes, but I'm having trouble understanding how Republican Senators acting as obstructionists to Liberal policymaking equate to RW's analogy. Perhaps you could help me to understand?

I doubt it.

I couldn't convince you that our mountain of debt and trade imbalance with China would result in economic disaster....

this is far more subtle.

Also, some people want to do their own thing so much that the gummit can't stop them without killing them. And after they kill off those people, even the rubes don't have a groove for the whole state first thing. Then you have to start killing them off. Stalin and Krushev couldn't kill em off fast enough, and they were the BEST at it.

And this is partly why corruption and crime are so rampant in our global society.

How is the Wall Street/banking fiasco-Ponzi scheme any different?

 

Are they NOT using "somebody else's money"

 

Have they NOT run out of somebody else's money?

 

 

Call it whatever you choose.

 

But the facts are the facts.

 

"Capitalists" have RUN OUT of somebody else's money.

 

Hence, why they want taxpayer money, a bailout, to recoup their losses kooky.gif
