Hey, call me crazy, many on the left probably do!
Anyhow, just so you know (& I’ve said it before) I don’t hate anyone, I do get angry, argue my points, & sometimes pound the keys, but I never hate.
The reason I say all this, I want to see a Presidential contest between an actual Socialist & a (mostly) Capitalist. It would be a good eye opener for the country! (Hopefully)
It would get people to debate that & take it seriously, rather than just slow creep toward Socialism, very well ending badly. So being forced to look at it up close to consider what it would mean to our lives.
To me it’s a pipe dream of those who are either indoctrinated or don’t really understand how things work. Some on both sides will never be persuaded to any different thinking, or ever consider both sides COULD POSSIBLY be wrong, at least in a thing or two… but I do think Socialism has a TRACK RECORD of abysmal failure every time it’s tried. So I will be one of those who would never vote for it, based on history & track record. To me it’s just logic.
Having said all that, the right has it’s share of failures & mistakes, it’s just that most of theirs is followed by losing elections, & usually not a great harm to the country as a whole. But if the country ever goes Socialist, I don’t think that fail will end in recovery, I think it would end in…the end…
