Matrix Morpheus Meme | WHAT IF I TOLD YOU THAT YOU ALREADY LIVE IN A SOCIALIST COUNTRY? | image tagged in memes,matrix morpheus | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
Don't want to? Great. Stop driving on those public roads. Take your kids out of school. Going to school yourself? Better be a private school with no federal loans. Oh, and no federal funding for the school. That's socialism. Also, stop drinking water from the tap. In fact, just stop using water altogether, unless you are on a well, in which case you are cool. Not socialist. Unemployment benefits...ever used them? Well, stop using them, commie. Ever called the cops? Socialist as hell, real Americans buy their own security...it's called an AK-47, hippie.

And so on and so forth. Socialism and capitalism have worked just fine together for a long, long time.

Women weren't working hear me out if two people are working there is more money then the cost of housing increased as there is effectively double the income so if you are a single parent male or female you will have a really hard time with the cost of living being so high

It's been like that since before this country was a country. Why does the government provide subsidies for mineral exploration? Shouldn't that be the forte of the mining and oil companies? Why do telecommunications companies get subsidized to run phone lines and internet lines to remote areas that, without the government handouts, be non-profitable?

Not the first time it's happened. Lobbyists from the India Tea Company wanted the general public to pay the high taxes caused by Great Brittan's constant wars. That's how the American Colonists ended up with all those weird taxes. We saw what happened then.

Don't know where you're reading your history, but how would it benefit a tea company to want to increase taxes on its own product? Seems to me like increased cost, consumer outrage, and a revolutionary war would be bad for business. *Sips coffee, not tea*

Tell that to the people in Detroit who became jobless when the auto manufacturers moved out of the city and into the suburbs.

We can all point out the the dangers of either extreme. Socialism never has enough bread and capitalism has plenty but no one can afford it. Unbridled capitalism creates profit driven opportunists that heartless to the plight of the less fortunate. Unrestrained socialism fosters dependence and stagnancy, and fails to deliver what it promises. The US has historically compromised by engaging in an essentially capitalist system with some socialist solutions to certain problems, such as central banking. The real questions are, what are the goals that we are trying to achieve and what is the most appropriate mix to progress towards them. Neither extreme works. Ok. Lecture over.

The auto makers didn't go out of business. They left Detroit and moved to the suburbs, taking all those employment opportunities and jobs with them.

And WHY did they leave? Did you ever consider asking why?

Probably because they were losing money being in the city.

So why were they losing money? There should have been tons of cheaper labor to choose from in the city. Was it crime? Unsuitable demographics? Oppressively high taxes from the city, or stupid laws? Obviously if it would have been profitable to stay in the city, they wouldn't have spent a fortune moving.

I don't know why they moved, but I think racial tensions may (I stress MAY) have been a part of it. I don't know for sure.

But what if they can't move? Many people have houses. If their company up and leaves, they can't just throw their stuff in their car and go right away.

You're missing the bigger picture anyway, about American companies leaving American workers high and dry.
reply

So are you saying American companies should be in the business of providing jobs instead of products and services? That’s why the government keeps raising taxes yet continues to go deeper in debt. Few businesses would survive if they ran like a welfare service for their employees.

Just like I said, they’re not in business to provide jobs. The jobs they provide is a byproduct, so, when a business closes or moves, they are not obligated to take care of their former employees.

That is the free market and capitalism at work. People who don't work and continually make bad decision after bad decision tend to wind up looking like this. And it's their fault, and no one should be obligated to provide them a job, much less a free house to wreck.

(Disclaimer: that said, there's actually small groups of homeless that got that way of no fault of their own. That is what private charity was for before.. before it was all but destroyed by the discriminant government handout system).

The 2018 Best Countries rankings, formed in partnership with global marketing communications company Y&R's brand strategy firm, BAV Group, and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, are based on a study that surveyed more than 21,000 global citizens from four regions to asses perceptions of 80 countries on 75 different metrics. The Quality of Life subranking is based on an equally weighted average of scores from nine country attributes that relate to quality of life in a country: affordable, a good job market, economically stable, family friendly, income equality, politically stable, safe, well-developed public education system and well-developed public health system. The Quality of Life subranking score had a 17 percent weight in the overall Best Countries ranking.
