With respect to the two words “general welfare,” I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators.
Really! In the past 23 years, what has Bernie actually done for anyone anywhere? Who has Bernie lifted from poverty? From all reports, much like his comrade, Elizabeth Warren, the only one who’s economic situation greatly improved from Bernie’s actions is his own and that of his immediate family. Though admittedly, it’s only a quarter of Warren’s nest-egg.
It’s a funny thing how every single time a politician pushes for socialism they seem to be the ones getting rich off of it.
Not only is Capitalism the economic form that sustains the world, but there’s two big reasons, truly powerful reasons, that I will always choose it over any other form of economy when at scale larger than a small, tight-knit, homogeneous community.
Bodacious Boobs Of The Free World
Because it’s true; you just don’t get very many bodacious boobs in non-Capitalist countries, most of whom have huge and persistent food production and distribution issues which result in starvation and stunted growth – and flatter, smaller boobs.
The thing is, while she’s wrong about America and Americans, she’s right about her constituency, the Left, and most of the Democrat party. They do want Socialism and they know exactly why they want it.
Why They Want It
Our domestic enemies, the so-called Liberals and Progressives and those minorities sharecroppers that they pander to- and enable do want socialism. They want it even knowing the harm it would wreak upon the nation. Indeed, in a way they want Socialism because of the harm that would wreak upon the nation. This is simply because our domestic enemies are far, far, far more emotionally invested in taking from the successful than becoming successful themselves. That’s why so much of their rhetoric is about “income inequality,” “wage gaps,” and so forth. It’s also why their dead set against anything that actually benefits “the poor” if it also benefits “the rich.”
Despite the oft-ranted delusions of the Left, this does sum up the contrast between Capitalism and Socialism in the real world as opposed to the academic fantasy utopia that certain sorts insist in living in. Only in the case of a very few, very small, very wealthy countries has Socialism worked at all…and in those few countries it is maintained through strict laws, e.g., stringent immigration laws, that the Liberals and Progressives within America hate, loath, and deplore.
