Socialism is particularly dangerous because it’s so perfectly suited for the modern era. It’s the ultimate “miracle” product: it’s “nice,” it’s “fair,” it’ll make you feel good about yourself, it’ll “help” people who “deserve it” by taking things away from people who “have so much” they’ll barely miss it. It sounds wonderful, doesn’t it? But, like most products with sleazy salesmen and hidden track records, the promises socialism makes are all a mirage. Since schools in this world generally do a terrible job of teaching history and economics these days, it’s understandable why so many are ignorant to the failures that Socialism brings.
Too bad Matt did not mention Greece here? How about Venezuela? Both Democratic socialist states that have failed. Oh, then there is Italy, on the verge of collapse, as well as Sweden. There are plenty of good examples of Democratic Socialism failing in the modern era, happening right before your eyes. But I know… the people in YOUR country are so much smarter then the people of Greece, Italy and Venezuela, etc.
Maybe the “Murices will get it right with some guy that never held a job until he was elected at 40, and then has been in government since, he’s way smarter then anyone else, he’ll make socialism work in ‘Murica.
Just a quick question, since a Constitutional Republic can not coexist under a Socialist state, should people like “Feel the Bern” Bernie and his millennial minions be considered domestic enemies of things like the Constitution?
