Socialism ultimately fails

June 27, 2012

EDITOR:There's a test coming up in 2012:

Explaining socialist economics as follows, everyone should understand.

If an economics teacher or professor were to make a statement, that he or she had never failed a single student before, would this be the first time? Let's say that this class had insisted that Obama's socialism worked, and that no one should be poor and no one should be rich, a great equalizer right?

If the teacher/professor had an experiment in their classroom on Obama's plan with all tests scores averaged from the whole class, and everyone will receive the same grade, so no one will receive an F and no one will receive an A. Right?

History has shown us, that this is what happens in a system like socialism: For the first test as always, the good students studied hard and others not so hard. After the first test, the grades would be averaged and everyone gets a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied very 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 third 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. All failed, to their great surprise. Socialism, also, ultimately fails 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.

When a president doesn't know what to do, he/she should read the Constitution, it tells you exactly what to do. The Constitution is what made our country great, and greatness is something a socialist country will never have.

Remember, there is a test coming up this November. Please don't fail this one, do your homework and study hard. Remember, your country's future is at stake.
