Why Liberals and Socialist have to lie?
The truth about socialism, and the deceit required!
If you understand the economic system and how the world works, you will find capitalism as the key ingredient for income equality AND opportunity. This takes time to study and research, many can't seem to find the information since it usually requires compiling GDP data, along with understanding all the variables that take place. The reality is, the free market capitalistic system offer the most opportunity for economic advancement and equality of wages. It gets down to understanding that we are created by God, with special gifts and talents, and it is our opportunity to take these talents to the marketplace and be compensated fairly by this. Seems reasonable, then why to Liberals and Socialist not agree with this?
To understand the answer to the question, you have to take a big picture view of the world. As stated, when you look at a socialist program, it is an experiment in social engineering under the premise that they are helping mankind/humanity. The fact when you start seriously asking questions about - why it didn't work, you usually can expect an answer along the lines that they just didn't have the right people running it. See, Socialism is a lie created by liberals who don't believe in factual data, and hate the idea of being challenged. You can always tell what is going on with a socialist, because when you start putting facts on the table, they start to criticize you for questioning them, and they are likely to do the personal attack.
Instead of answering the question, they seem to want to mislead or distort the facts, but most of you are smart enough to do the research. Since you have computers, you can discover the amazing part of capitalism, and how it absolutely trumps any socialist program ever invented.
Capitalism is viewed upon by many as a greedy way the rich take advantage of the poor. If this were true, my question is why do capitalist countries have a higher quality life with a 10 to 1 higher average income.
Can money solve all the problems here? It seems that it is a great mechanism for being able to live in a location that has clean water, good hospitals, and modern conveniences. What a socialist doesn't want you to know, is that in a majority of socialist countries, the income and poverty rates are sickening, especially compared to the poorest countries that have capitalism as the economic system. You have to understand that a socialist wants control over people, they want to dictate what you can have, and what you can't have. Although socialism sounds like a utopia in theory, reality is greed is more prevalent in socialist countries, than it is in capitalistic countries.
Don't believe it? Ask yourself the question. Would I rather trust a congressman or a stockbroker? With a government official, you have no choice and they often raid anything they can get their hands on as far as money. Think social security. Want some facts? When social security was rolled out, there was approximately one recipient per 14 people that were making payments. Because of mismanagement, and because congress keeps adding "other" than retirement recipients, that figure is now 2.3 people per 1 person receiving payments. In contrast, we have a stock broker that A, you don't have to do business with, and B, if they get caught in any type of criminal activity, they go to prison. Where is the equality there? Think about that one.
Many of you won't believe that socialism and liberals aren't in this for control vs. equality. My question is - why raise taxes when it is a known fact that lower tax rates trigger the economy for growth AND federal tax receipts go UP! Then why raise taxes? As the last seven years have proved, higher tax rates along with social programs has led to the average American income to be $4,000 less than it was? If the socialist really wanted to have income equality, and sustained economic growth, the only answer is lower taxes and less government so that opportunity exists. Something more to ask yourself when you think social programs are the answer. The bailout of many companies by government. What happened to that money? Do you know the government spent so much money the first year of the bailouts, that each taxpayer in the United States could have not have had to pay one penny in taxes that year? Instead we were burdened with a huge debt and nothing to show for it. NOW, regarding capitalism AND the trickle down theory. Do you think if 300 million people in the United States would receive an average return of $7,247.53...could have spent that money themselves AND it would have created real demand for products and a growth in employment? You don't have to be a college grad to figure this out!
So why raise taxes? This absolutely doesn't make any sense, but the way a socialist sees it, some people have too much money. I know...what about Warren Buffett and the rest of the liberals in the United States? Here is where you will really find out what these people are about, since they simply are hypocrites. Come on - do you really mean that? Absolutely. The question is - if Warren Buffett is concerned he is too rich and doesn't pay any taxes, is the question ever asked "why don't you just write a big check to the government then?" Do you think the liberals in America, who talk like they want to fix the social problems, do you think they are paying more than their fair share of taxes? If so, why do so many of them find the best accounting personal, and work the tax code to full advantage? It's because they don't really believe it, they just want to protect their wealthy position and make everyone believe they care. Al Gore...he tells us about Global Warming, yet he takes a personal jet everywhere he goes, creating excess carbon emissions that are 10 times what taking the airlines would be. Think he cares?
But what this is really about, is socialism and liberals that have to lie to cover the real motive. As you probably have heard regarding the Obama Health care program, that many of these liberals flat out told the American public they had to lie to get the bill passed? Is that what we want? MIT Professor Jonathan Gruber has made that statement, which fits the venue for any social program...we have to lie about it. When you ask a socialist why the war on poverty has not accomplished anything, the answer is always - huh, it's because we haven't spent enough money on it! Really? Gruber told everyone that they had to hid the data from the scoring CBO (Congressional Budget Office), because the truth is this was going to cost a lot more money than the public was being told, AND THEY KNEW IT! That is why they have to lie, because they know this new law was going to limit healthcare AND raise the price! But...as admitted by the socialist, they had to lie to the stupid American people - to pass the law? This is a common socialist/liberal theme.
What about Solyndra solar? Did it have a business plan that had any merit? Did the product have any demand at the price and technology level...in other words, was it practical? The answers were NO. Yet, the socialist agenda of wanting a product that makes us feel good, was worth ripping off the American taxpayer. This was a private firm, YET they received government loan guarantees because it was a business that the liberals believed in, did anyone in the oil business get any guaranteed loans? No. Was there malice involved with this? Absolutely, as the inner circle KNEW this wasn't a viable business, so lets lie to the American public, because this is what socialism really is - lies about the true intent no matter what the facts are, socialism is all about corruption!
What is DDT? It was a chemical employed to eradicate malaria from the planet. Since liberals hate large chemical companies, they decided to ban it despite the evidence that if it was used properly, there weren't any real problems with hit. Socialism becomes the mechanism for forcing people to live under the rules of government - we know more about this because we are smart and we care. So instead of the facts, we now have a worldwide problem of death by this disease, while Bill Gates believes the solution is to buy nets as the solution for keeping malaria and mosquitoes contained? The reason I bring up Bill Gates, is that here is a liberal that is a socialist, and you see what the results are? That's right, because we care it doesn't matter what the facts are! Killing People - The banning of DDT and radical environmentalists
My point is capitalism trumps socialism, because socialism is nothing but a lie, it does not produce a better economy, and doesn't prosper anyone except the top 1% power elite. Why is this and why don't people understand this? The facts as to the economy get down to this -
You go to work for a company that believes a disparity of wages is not fair, so we are going to pay everyone the same, and we are going to run a business this way. SOUNDS great, similar to how socialism SOUNDS great, but it never works. Why? The question gets down to exceptionalism and the opposite, equality. The fact is society operates from a standpoint of - why should I work harder than the next person IF I don't get paid one cent more than the other person is getting paid? THIS is the problem! The Utopian view is - well, they will be making more money so they will be more motivated. Single mothers won't have to worry about getting by, they will have all they need therefore will show up to work and have a higher output while at work.
I want everyone to make money that provides more than enough income to afford the essentials + the good things in life. But, when everyone realizes that I don't have to do anything more than I am to get the same amount of pay, what happens? You don't have the hard working think outside the box types that make a difference. Without incentives, people aren't going to excel at becoming better and more efficient. Ever been to the DMV? The only pay increase they see is with tenor, nothing to do with how many customers they serve. And that is why socialism fails, as William Bradford (the Pilgrims and the Mayflower) discovered. The social experiment with communal style governance, led to the brink of starvation. Once they decided to allow the capitalistic approach to selling excess crops in the community, they had more food than they knew what to do with! Read the journals you socialist!!! Quit denying the truth.
And that is why socialist economies don't work, as there are no incentives for productivity, so everyone in society just quits trying to innovate and bring their best talents to the table...because it doesn't reward them as individuals. What socialist don't want to admit, is that under capitalism, specifically the United States, capitalism has raised the standard of living throughout the world via the strength of the economy that is able to provide relief for many socialist countries. Why is it that the world's wealth owes over 51% of the total wealth to the United States and the capitalistic system? It's because it works.
I rest my case!
