Leftist Answer to Everything: Socialism

No matter if it’s a few bad cops, jobs, healthcare, or you got your feelings hurt, the answer is always the same, socialism.

Trouble is, it never works. Ever.

How are those farmers doing with their handouts? Hopefully purchasing bootstraps.

They suck just as bad as the rest of the garbage that FDR passed.

Each time we try Socialism as a species, we end up with starvation, tyranny and murder. More than 100,000,000 people have been killed in attempts to drive socialism. Today, we hear how sexy it is and how it’s never been done like we’re going to do it… sounds a lot like what was preached in Venezuela. Russia. Cuba. China. Cambodia. . . the list goes on and on…

I like Jordan’s take on it.

Pity the poor unhappy starving people In Finland.

Under Marxism there is no state, so no socialism.

So now your pro-socialism.

Findland is not socialist.

So long ago, a farm was a family unit that grew more than that family needed. They sold the excess to city dwellers and earned a living. The larger the farm, the more help that was needed and hence this is where slavery sometimes came in.

Slavery ended and farming motorized equipment was invented. A farmer could accomplish much more and do it more efficiently and farms grew in size. The equipment kept rising in prices too. This created a greater expense and just because you were a farmer, did not make you a good business man. Many went under. Many children left the farm and moved to the city. This made fewer farmers who farmed much larger swaths of land. The equipment continued to rise in cost that resulted in even fewer farmers.

Today, there’s fewer farmers than ever but they farm much larger pieces of land. I’m talking thousands of acres. Just to get an idea of the size, consider that 640 acres equals a square mile. We have placed our farming needs in the hands of a few and now when one goes under, it can be negatively effect our very existence. They produce so much that their products are sold outside the country and government quibling can effect their sales and cause them to go under, therefore they’ve been subsidized to prevent this from happening. It isn’t all for them my friend, it’s for you and I too. I say this because you don’t seem to be cognizant of this?

Weird, it kind of seems like we still have starvation, tyranny, and murder under Capitalism. It’s almost like there is no perfect system for everyone. Someone’s always going to be left out.

Not anymore, now we have big agrobusiness that can do ten times the work with machines instead. Where do you think GMOs come from?

We still do business with China and Vietnam, and they’re both Socialist/Communist countries. Cheap labor is cheap labor, right? Better them than us or something.

The government put them under. The government can pay a fine.

Oh so you’re completely ignoring what I said to continue pushing your false narrative. That’s cool. By the way, it used to be the family farm, before we decided that people had to be independent as soon as they turned 18 and leave the homestead to make homes of their own. Seems like a culture problem if anything.

The pollution restrictions here in the US are not the same in China. Much of manufacturing isn’t just about labor costs, it’s about all other costs too and one of the largest, was the cost of not polluting. Now…since so many can no longer see and smell the pollution, they are no longer cognizant of the pollution they are sponsoring by shopping at Walmart. Then that afternoon, they protest man-made global warming and me…I’m flying in my taxi, taking tips and getting stoned but I refuse to step one foot, in Walmart :sunglasses:

Yeah, Walmart is the root of all of China’s problems. Nobody else does business with them either. You bet. :roll_eyes:

Sam Walton prided himself in selling goods made in the USA. When he died, the family took a new direction and in many ways, led the way to what I’m speaking of but…think small. :sunglasses:
