Capitalism is what is funding our government, and has been forever. You can b***h about military spending all you want, but don't forget your president has not pulled out like he promised, nor has he cut spending in the areas that he promised. You want the rich to pay more in taxes but where do you want them to get that money from? Eventually, we will bleed them dry. Capitalism makes the world go 'round, dear. What would you propose we put in place? True, money can be the root of all evil, but where would you be without industry?



Trust me, I get the assistance thing. I was blessed to have very wealthy parents that believed in me doing things on my own. College is still coming out of my pocket. When I had my oldest son, I had to have Medicare because I worked two jobs that didn't offer insurance on top of going to school. Now, I've been walking around on a broken foot for a month (fell in a hole at the air show in Galveston because I'm awesome) and I don't have enough money even with insurance to get it fixed. I've been through all of it. I'd still rather have our government stay out of my body because it is full of inept egomaniacs that would rather argue and divide the country then actually get stuff done.



Do not mistake me; I'm not a republican. Nor am I some right-wing redneck. I'm someone who believes in states rights and limited federal government power.



Sorry if this is worded weird. I'm on my phone and I can't go back and proofread for some reason.

And, yes, redneck is a racist term. It specifically refers to uneducated white farmers whose necks were red from working in the sun all day.

What is superior to capitalism?
Capitalism is the reason this country has accomplished so much for so many is such a short time.

tl;dr
I've been done with this thread for days. Don't mistake this for me not knowing what I'm talking about. I'm just sick of this discussion.

I guess that's a good response when you have nothing intelligent to say to back up your point that doesn't involve calling someone a t**t or stereotyping. It's cool. I am used to that response.



Sorry it took me awhile to respond. I was busy homeschooling, volunteering, and actually contributing to society.

Redneck is racist, but I don't care. I'm PROUD to be a Redneck because it means I busted my ass for what I have. I didn't have dear old Uncle Sam provide for me.



I would rather be a Redneck than a Communist!

I'm sorry but that's bullshit. I did not read/respond because I'm tired as f**k and I've literally gone in circles on this topic for a week now and I'm annoyed with it. I've got lots of intelligent points I could add. Not feeling like discussing something does not mean I don't have any intelligent points to offer.



And how dare you assume that I don't contribute to society. You know nothing about me at all. And I never called you any names. So bite me.



Also, I'm not on gov assistance and have not ever been in my entire adult life.

If you have intelligent points on the topic, why haven't you posted any? You don't have any facts or statistics to back up what you say. You only call people names.

Omg stfu...what part of I'm done with this don't you understand? I have posted facts and intelligent points. You just don't see them as intelligent because you don't agree with them. So stop wasting your time. Do not respond to me again cuz you annoy the f**k out of me.

Racist slurs referring to white people don't bother me. Of course, I've never had to go through what many other races have, so I can't compare. However, this conversation wasn't about race or religion. I'm one of the few people I know that really does completely remove religion and race from politics, and that includes the atheists I know. My religion has exactly zero percent influence on my political leanings and beliefs. I use common sense. Common sense dictates that socialism cannot work with humans because there will always be power hungry megalomaniacs that will reduce society to the have's and have-not's, and there will always be those that want something for nothing. When you take away any incentive for hard work and try to create a level playing field, all you're doing is creating a generation of lazy adults incapable of taking care of themselves.

I really don't agree. I think capitalism is far worse. It allows the greediest to remain greedy while the poorest remain poor.
