Socialism vs. Capitalism

29 posts in this topic

you could've saved a lot of typing time if you just wrote "i don't know what socialism is."

what? i have more intelligence in my pinky finger than you possess as a whole. my post was more in regards to socialized health care (since it had been brought up) than anything else.

You idiot, Social Security is not nationalized retirement. It's a system designed to make the older or infirm less of a burden on their relatives, and a safety net if the crap really hits the fan. I know that your knowledge of the New Deal is limited to "IT SUCKED!!!!" but massive unemployment and poverty made caring for the people who fell through the cracks a big big problem. Also, there had to be a system apart from banks to hold the individuals money since pure capitalism wiped out savings.

If not for the Social Security which my parents paid into, when my mom died we would have lost our (small) house.

any program the government forces us to partake in without our consent is considered socialist.

but hey, why dont you focus on what my post was really about.

idiot.

well yea and thats what welfare is. however, obama wants to give those who already receive welfare more welfare on top of that through "tax cuts."

Is there any particular reason that you responded to my post with this vapid babble?

basic healthcare can be provided to the masses at a much lower cost than is being poured into the private sector. Likewise, regulating lawsuits and controlling insurance and pharmy companies can lower the costs of the private sector and allow them to remain competitive so that the market doesn't stagnate. People still have a choice, everyone has basic healthcare and it costs about the same amount that it does now.

Nobody is asking for free nosejobs, people just want to be their health in the hands of people who aren't paid to turn them away (i.e. the insurance companies.)

I would guess that venom is an insurance salesman but that would require not being a moran.

no that is incorrect. the introduction of medicare and medicaid alone by lyndon johnson skyrocketed the cost of medicine in the 60's, which we still feel the effects of today.

does anyone on here actually know what theyre talking about? it doesnt seem that way.

Barack isn't a pure socialist, he shares some socialistic views though.
