Socialism on Display

Rick Hughes  October 20, 2010

Today, you can watch on TV the deadly toxin of socialism. The state cannot take care of you my friends and my enemies. The state to do this must extract from the productive and channel the money to the non productive. France is rioting because their leader wants to raise the retirement age from 60 to 62. Always and everywhere socialism fails and leads people toward real poverty and severe hardship. Do not be enticed by  the false promises of state generosity. Those who get state largess first may temporally benefit, but the long term prognosis is never pleasant. Also, it has an awful morale impact on the majority of people. Our freedom, capitalism, and individualism is what makes us a great nation. Let this be your guide, nothing of a service or material nature is ever free, somewhere, somehow a productive taxpayer pays.
