The Limits of Socialism | May 8, 2015

In the modern world, the US is still pretty capitalist, if not all that free anymore. We have government health care where the feds want to know all about our coverage, but still capitalist enough that most of us have to pay a lot for it. I would say that the current administration has done more to get us to socialism than any president since LBJ. His campaign staff of marketing people decided to bring their evil to the UK this year to game their supposedly inferior political system. They learned the lesson the US hasn’t. There is a limit to socialism, and this was it.

David Cameron, instead of squeaking by, roared with a newly empowered Conservative majority. Labor was hit hard as other right-leaning minor parties decimated them. The Daily Mirror, responsible for this gem in 2004 when Bush was reelected, was dumbfounded the point of simply printing “Five More Damned Years” in white letters on a black page.

The bad thing about socialism is that it promises the world to people. The good thing is that it can’t deliver. The tipping point is when enough people figure out the latter. I hope the US catches a case of sanity from our former rulers next year.

  1. I also hope the GOP learned from the Conservative success.
