Socialism, communism, capitalism


Learned this stuff in 8th and 9th grades. Teacher was Mr. John Devos, born in Belgium. American citizen! He thought we should understand and know as much as possible about socialism and communism, so we would recognize it. Great teacher………we have no John Devos’ today. YES BERNIE SANDERS IS A SOCIALIST. We have a dumbing down process that has been lurking for years now. Anyone can teach stupidity.

The main difference is that under communism, most property and economic resources are owned and controlled by the state (rather than individual citizens); under socialism, all citizens share equally in economic resources as allocated by a democratically-elected government. http://www.thoughtco.com

The main difference between capitalism and socialism is the extent of government intervention in the economy. A capitalist economic system is characterised by private ownership of assets and business. A capitalist economy relies on free-markets to determine, price, incomes, wealth and distribution of goods. http://www.economicshelp.org

The term socialism refers to any system in which the production and distribution of goods and services is a shared responsibility of a group of people. Socialism is based upon economic and political theories that advocate for collectivism. In a state of socialism, there is no privately owned property. examples.yourdictionary.com

Sanders wants everyone to be literally equal. He wants the distribution of wealth to be spread out equally; EXCEPT FOR HIM. He wants to control it, he wants to control everything.

Thank you Mr. Devos for teaching me how to recognize a commie.

Socialism is based on deceit. Bernie Sanders will say and promise whatever he thinks it will take for your vote. However, he can not deliver. This is socialism.

Nothing is free people, not education, not healthcare, not food, nothing! Promises made from Bernie is nothing but lies. That is what a socialist does. It does not work. All it does, is take control, away from we the people. Bernie wants to be in total command.

Seriously, do you want a socialist to be your Commander in Chief? If yes, go to Venezuela! Good luck!

AOC and the blind generation: by a 26 year old college student

AOC AND THE BLIND GENERATION

My Generation Is Blind to the Prosperity Around Us!

I’m sitting in a small coffee shop near Nokomis (Florida) trying to think of what to write about. I scroll through my newsfeed on my phone looking at the latest headlines of presidential candidates calling for policies to “fix” the so-called injustices of capitalism. I put my phone down and continue to look around.

I see people talking freely, working on their MacBook’s, ordering food they get in an instant, seeing cars go by outside, and it dawned on me. We live in the most privileged time in the most prosperous nation and we’ve become completely blind to it.

Vehicles, food, technology, freedom to associate with whom we choose.These things are so ingrained in our American way of life we don’t give them a second thought.

We are so well off here in the United States that our poverty line begins 31 times above the global average. Thirty One Times!!!
Virtually no one in the United States is considered poor by global standards. Yet, in a time where we can order a product off Amazon with one click and have it at our doorstep the next day, we are unappreciative, unsatisfied, and ungrateful. ??

Our unappreciation is evident as the popularity of socialist policies among my generation continues to grow.

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently said to Newsweek talking about the millennial generation, “An entire generation, which is now becoming one of the largest electorates in America, came of age and never saw American prosperity.”

“NEVER SAW AMERICAN PROSPERITY!” Let that sink in!

When I first read that statement, I thought to myself, that was quite literally the most entitled and factually illiterate thing I’ve ever heard in my 26 years on this earth. Many young people agree with her, which is entirely misguided.

My generation is being indoctrinated by a mainstream narrative to actually believe we have never seen prosperity. I know this first hand, I went to college, let’s just say I didn’t have the popular opinion, but I digress.

Why then, with all of the overwhelming evidence around us, evidence that I can even see sitting at a coffee shop, do we not view this as prosperity? We have people who are dying to get into our country.

People around the world are destitute and truly impoverished.

Yet, we have a young generation convinced they’ve never seen prosperity, and as a result, we elect some politicians who are dead set on taking steps towards abolishing capitalism.

Why? The answer is this…My generation has ONLY seen prosperity. WE HAVE NO CONTRAST!

We didn’t live in the great depression, or live through two world wars, the Korean War, The Vietnam War Nor did WE see the rise and fall of socialism and communism.

We don’t know what it’s like to live without the internet, without cars, without smartphones. We don’t have a lack of prosperity problem; WE HAVE AN ENTITLEMENT PROBLEM, an UNGRATEFULNESS problem, and it’s spreading like a plague.”
