Socialism

Why on earth do the democrats want to turn the United States into a socialist "Utopia"? If it's so great, why not move to Canada? Or even cuba? After all, they consider these two countries to be so superior to the US that we should emulate them. Maybe they should go live there as the "lower classes" do and see if they don't change their tunes right quick.

Another thing, why is it the dedicated socialists all seem to be either A: trust fund babies, or B: people I suspect have been brainwashed by the university system to believe in the socialist movement.

I wonder if socialism would be so popular if people were actually educated to the REAL cost of it? Instead of being told that it was this guy or that groups fault that all those people were killed. Think, Joe Stalin or the Khmer Rouge. Joe Stalin, while a monster, did not start the systematic slaughter of the Russian people. A man named Lenin did.

Another thing I have noticed about socialism is how fast they turn on each other once they are in charge. Stalin turned on anyone he thought might possibly threaten him. Every socialist movement seems to have purges every few years, or I suspect, every time the leadership changes.

Here is a question: Why is it, whenever a socialist winds up in charge of something, they seem to try their damnedest to squeeze money from the populace? Don't tell me how its companies or special interests they are getting money from, the companies and special interests get their money from the populace. Adding one more step doesn't change where the money is actually coming from.

Anyway, back to the question. Slick Willie Clinton at literally the last few hours of his term as President, effectively "sold" pardons to rich "clients" who wanted certain people's crimes pardoned. Governor doyle seems to have so many scandals involving government contracts right now that you have to wonder WTF he was thinking by accepting what are in effect, bribes.

Yes, I know that Republicans have accepted money from special interest groups too, but I have yet to see them do it on this scale. Renting out the Lincoln bedroom for donations to the RNC? Hasn't happened. Accepting money for pardons? Hasn't happened. Accepting thousands for your campain from a company that would really like a certain contract? Probably has happened, but I have not heard about it, yet.

Anyway, does socialism lead to corruption, or are socialists just corrupted at heart?

I've always considered it to be a by-product of the holier-than-thou attitude that accompanies the revolutions that bring these nitwits to power in the first place.

Socialists are corrupt at heart, because of their atheistic beliefs. When one has elevated one's self to God-status, as all atheists, agnostics, and humanists have done, what does a little corruption mean? Mini-gods are allowed to be corrupt, in their world.

Have you noticed that all Socialists are effectively atheists? There's your answer.

No, I didn't notice that. I will have to look into it further.

Anyone else have an opinion?

I've largely given up on the Democratic party because of their socialist platform.

Every year I'm closer to giving up on the Republican party too.

Actually, I think the Republican party is becoming more socialist from all the former demonrats that deserted thier party to join the winners.

If you can't beat them, join them you know.

HD - I must politely disagree with you. I'm both an atheist AND a Capitalist. However, if your point is that lacking a functional moral code leads to socialist corruption, I'll agree with that.
