It's simple, socialism is evil. We must stop the spread of the new democratic socialist agenda
No matter how you slice it, socialism doesn't solve the 'moral' problems associated with any economic theory. People are always greedy, be it for socialized services or for free capital
The idea that that state knows more than the market, and that the state should control private property and the economy should be a scarier proposition than people realize. Either we defend freedom, or we give it way, and modern 'socialists' are making the case that 'comfort' is better than 'freedom'. We disagree.
That's not even a question. The entire point of 'state control' of the economy is to diminish the value of the individual. State takeover of industry is anti-freedom and innovation.
There is no system created on Earth that has brought more people out of poverty than capitalism. There are no examples of any socialist countries that have excelled at innovation and technology and freedom in the history of civilization. Does anything actually think a large powerful government can determine what's best for you and your family?
It's difficult to imagine that according to recent polling, over 60% of people under the age of 30 would vote for a socialist candidate.
"Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word, equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude." -Alexis de Tocqueville
"Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery." -Winston Churchill
