I was scrolling Facebook today and came across one of those posts that people share without really knowing the origin. It is the best take on socialism that I have seen yet!
Here's what the post said:
A guy looked at my Corvette the other day and said, " I wonder how many people could have been fed for the money that sports car cost."
I replied, "I am not sure, but it fed a lot of families in Bowling Green, Kentucky who built it; it fed the people who make the tires; it fed the people who made the components that went into it; it fed the people in the copper mine who mined the copper for the wires; it fed people in Decatur IL at Caterpillar who made the trucks that hauled the copper ore.
"It also fed the trucking people who hauled it from the plant to the dealer and fed the people working at the dealership and their families. BUT... I have to admit, I guess I really don't know exactly how many people it fed."
That is the difference between the capitalism and welfare mentality: --When you buy something, you put money in people's pockets, and give them dignity for their skills and hard work. --When you give someone something for nothing, you rob them of their dignity and self worth.
Capitalism is freely giving your money in exchange for something of value. Socialism is taking your money against your will and shoving something down your throat that you never asked for. I've decided I can't be politically correct anymore. (I never was, actually)
Amen and Amen! That is the best take on the topic I have seen so far.
