PostSubject: Socialism Works .. sort of .. maybe?   July 22nd 2016, 6:57 am

An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never
failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class.
That class had insisted that Obama's socialism worked and that no one would
be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer
The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on
Obama's plan".
All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so
no one will fail and no one will receive an A.... (substituting grades for
dollars - something closer to home and more readily understood by all). 
After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B.
The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied
little were happy.
As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied
even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too
so they studied little.
The second test average was a D! No one was happy.
When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F.
As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame
and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study
for the benefit of anyone else.
To their great surprise, ALL FAILED and the professor told them that
socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great,
the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward
away, no one will try or want to succeed. 
It could not be any simpler than that. (Please pass this on)
Remember, there IS a test coming up...The 2016 elections.

[size=32]3. The government cannot give to anybody anything [/size]
[size=32]that the government does not first take from somebody[/size]
[size=32]4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it![/size]
[size=32]5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not [/size]

[size=32]of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does[/size]
[size=32]no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.[/size]
[size=32]Can you think of a reason for not sharing this? Neither could I.[/size]

Socialism was tried back in the Colonial days and failed, once is enough.

John is correct.....for a number of reasons, Jamestown was pretty much a failure due in part to the communal approach to crop production. However Plymouth Colony decided early on that each was to have their own property to work....and if you don't work, you don't eat. Providence was kind enough to blow the Mayflower far enough north of Virginia (their original destination) to keep the separatist pilgrims from the heavy influence of Puritan Virginia John said the influence of the early failed experiment of socialism.
