metatron Posted January 25, 2012 Share Posted January 25, 2012 So did anyone else get a weird tingle up their spine upon hearing that Obama is urging for economic equality, thus effectively turning the United States into a socialist country. Few of you here would be rather thrilled, as I once would of, but growing up, I realize the fault of my ways. Before understanding how our economic system and politics works, I had some rather irrational views on the world, to the extent of almost being a Maoist. Through several years of a rigorous studying the subject, I've come out on the other end with a much better understanding.The way socialism works is by giving ultimate power to a single individual or group, to do what is best for the community as a whole. To achieve this however, sacrifices must be made, and people may be sacrificed too, but it's all for the greater good of the community. It's the ends justifying the means. Bigger Government is not the answer. The 1% didn't pay little taxes, they made 18% of national income, and paid 27% of the taxes. Compared to the next highest bracket at 17%, I'd say they "Pay their fair share." What is wrong with big CEOs making all kinds of money? Should hard work and dedication not be rewarded? What better reward than financial compensation? The problem isn't Capitalism, it's crony capitalism. The Federal Reserve is the problem, and abolishing it would be a step in righting many wrongs over the last 100 years.So, should Socialism be instilled in america?
