You Can't Give Somebody Something Unless You Take it From Somebody Else

That in a nutshell is what is behind the principle of Socialism.  The left-wing liberals are constantly crying that our capitalist free enterprise system creates an uneven playing field whereby some people do better financially than do others.  Is that a bad thing?  The Socialists, using the sin of envy, propose to take money away from the successful to give it to the unsuccessful.  In their minds, they think an all powerful government creates prosperity while companies and corporations create poverty.  They never point to any country that uses Socialism that has become an economically successful country.  In fact, the only countries that they can point to are countries that are economic basket cases, namely Cuba, Nicaragua, Venezuela, and most poverty stricken countries in Africa.

You’d think that that pitiful record of economic disaster in those countries, that the politicians in the the United States, especially on the Democrat side, would be championing free enterprise capitalism, but just the opposite is true, they are proposing a whole slew of socialist proposals and programs hoping that all the “FREE STUFF” they are offering up to the voters are going to turn into votes for them.  That former oracle, Sir Winston Churchill, once opined that “You don’t make the poor richer by making the rich poorer”.  But, that’s what these Democrat candidates for the Democrat nomination for president are proposing that they will do if they are elected.

There never has been a better economic system created by man, to relieve poverty than that of a capitalist free enterprise system that has been handed down to us by our founding fathers.  Of course, there will always be people who don’t prosper or take advantage of what our economic system offers due to various problems such as, disability, illness, drug and alcohol addiction, and just by being lazy. Our system has been the “shining light on the hill”, and that’s why so many people around the world want to immigrate here.  The problem we face is that our immigration laws are written so poorly that we are being “invaded” by people who are entering our country illegally. This has caused a major problem in our country of having to be a humanitarian country by admitting people who, in the main, are taxing our welfare system and causing havoc in many of our states and cities. President Trump is trying to bring law and order to this situation, but because of political concerns and the Democrats refusal to work with him, this disaster will continue.

The Democrats seem to be geared up to punishing the successful people by over taxing them (a form of punishment) instead of trying to give financially strapped people a hand up rather than a hand out. Our economy, since Trump took office, has been on a roll by creating an economy that is the envy of the world.  In Trump’s economy, we have a situation where we practically have full employment (a 3.6% unemployment rate); a GDP that hit 3.2% in April; and a rise in wages that has increased by 3%, with the biggest increase in the low wage sector.  Do we really want to adopt the “snake oil” that the Democrats are pushing by trying to give somebody something by taking it away from someone else.  Let’s continue making AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.
