A good lesson for every liberal in this country. If any liberal disagrees,
then I propose this challenge to the liberal...under a socialistic system,
what do you do about those who work hard but get no reward for the hard
work? What do you do about those people who are unhappy and will then no
longer wish to make an effort?
Kinda stumped on this one, huh?
If the answer is a "smart ass" one where it's "too bad for those who work
hard and aren't made happy," then my response to that is if we are going to
have to live with a government system that results in many of its citizens
being unhappy, then why don't we just keep the one we've already got - and
we're no worse off, right? At least with the current American way of life,
at least some will be made happy and get the due rewards of their hard work,
unlike socialism where in the end no one is happy.
Professor is a Genius
An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never
failed a single student before, but had once failed an entire class.
That class had insisted that Obama's socialism worked and that no one would
be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.
The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on
All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no
one would fail and no one would receive an A.
After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B.
The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little
As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had
studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free
ride too so they studied little.
The second test average was a D! No one was happy.
When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F.
The scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted
in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.
All failed, to their great surprise, and the professor told them that
socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the
effort to succeed is great but when government takes all the reward away, no
one will try or want to succeed.
