Socialists Don't Understand
They just don't understand what socialism IS. That without the free market, this country could not have outstripped those countries that have been around for hundreds, even thousands of years, in less than 300 years. Socialism alone gives NOBODY a chance to make any money. There MUST be a free market for the money to be made that socialists insist on “sharing” without having to work for it. In the early 1900s, socialists wondered why America hadn't “gone socialist.” yet. They couldn't conceive of a nation that didn't “realize the good things about socialism.” Trouble is, there ISN'T anything good about socialism. Early in my sign painting career, I got a job in a sign shop owned by an avowed socialist. That didn't bother me because I was just out of my teens and did not yet understand what socialism WAS, and how it is POISON to the American economy. What he didn't realize is that if he had been a REAL socialist, he was going about it all wrong. Instead of owning a sign shop and operating in the free market, he should be working for the government so he could suck off those who WERE operating in the free market.
Socialists just don't understand what socialism IS, They don't understand that, for socialism to work, there MUST be a “free market” (which they derisively call “Capitalism”) to EARN the money to which socialism DEMANDS a "SHARE." This “share" is to be gained by the socialist without having to do the work required to EARN the money. Without that “free market,” there would be no money for them to STEAL. Socialism is BASED on TAKING from those who EARN and GIVING to those who DON'T. Their very motto ADMITS that: “FROM each according to his ABILITY, and TO each according to his NEED,” making NEED a DEMAND upon the EARNINGS of OTHERS.. Under socialism, there is no other way to gain money but to TAKE IT from those who EARN it. That is THIEVERY. People who CLAIM to be socialists, like the owner of that sign shop, just don't understand what socialism IS. In his case, he was OPERATING as a capitalist, while CLAIMING to be a socialist. Socialists may yet attain their dream of socializing this country. They're persistent, if STUPID, and they're about halfway there now.. I tried valiantly to find someone else's article on this subject to link here, but couldn't. Apparently no one else has “tumbled” to this. Maybe it's too simple for them. Just common sense)
