Ha, you’re so funny. I don’t like Trump, Hillary, or Biden. I used to like the plan from Bernie Sanders, until I learned what socialism really is. I am not from any party. Funny how conservatives think I am on the left and neo-liberals think I am on the right.
What do you think socialism "really is"?
Well, socialism may be portrayed like it’s something to help off the poor, but really, it is a super complex and long story. I would suggest you check out the videos on YouTube by Prager U regarding socialism in China, one in Venezuela, and videos in free healthcare, video in rent control, and many more, all with Prager U. They make things make sense but I don’t really agree with their endorsement on death penalty. That video didn’t flip my mind on death penalty.
Just an FYI...Take a look at this:"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."Do you recognize it?It's the Preamble to the US Constitution.Notice this one particular element:"provide for the common defense"That implies that the US Federal Government is to provide military for the benefit of us all.That's right - the US military, an over 230-year old socialist program run by the government and funded by tax dollars for the benefit of all of us. The US military: The largest, oldest, and most successful socialist program in the 12000 years of human history. The US military: The socialist program mandated at the very beginning of the US Constitution.

The thing is when the government gets in control over it, they get in control over a huge amount, much bigger than any businesses, and running businesses isn’t a simple stuff. That is part of the reason why it doesn’t work out. When the market is free, there is greater competition with businesses. If no businesses are honest of ethical and you start one in which you are honest and the prices are lower, everyone will go to your business and other businesses will suffer as long as they don’t change their ways of business practices.The constitution says people have the right to liberty and pursuit of happiness. It never said people have the right to happiness. I sure do wish socialism worked, but France implemented it, in a few months there were heavy protests in the streets. There were many homeless people in the streets, gas price was at $7.13 per gallon! Many furnitures were thrown everywhere in the streets!And in Scandinavian countries, in Denmark, if you want to buy a car, well you will pay 180% in sales taxes! So if the base price of a car is $15,000, the total price is $42,000! Rent costs are high too! College may be free, but people still get in debt because they take out loan to pay for rent, books, public transportation, and food. And all of them are very expensive. Interest rate is low, but still an average person doesn’t pay it off entirely until they are on their 60s! Picture that. I think it’s crazy for sure, and I think you will think it the same way.
Just wait until you have medical bills. Then you will understand.No, it's not crazy over there because these people are not living in fear which you will be doing soon enough as you age.When you are old enough to learn about fear - the real fear of uncertainty that permeates the adult world in middle-age and beyond - then you will understand why the absence of fear = happiness.Once again, this list seldom changes because these people live with less fear...www.forbes.com/.../?sh=4b470a777850World's 20 Happiest Countries1 Finland2 Denmark3 Switzerland4 Iceland5 Norway6 Netherlands7 Sweden8 New Zealand9 Austria10 Luxembourg11 Canada12 Australia13 United Kingdom14 Israel15 Costa Rica16 Ireland17 Germany18 United States19 Czech Republic20 Belgium
