How about you?
I want to live in a society that promotes individualism, not paternalism.
I want to live in a society that promotes capitalism, not socialism.
I want to live in a society that is free, not tightly controlled.
I want to live in a society that is governed by a constitution, not a monarchy or aristocracy.
By today’s definitions, I consider myself to be a liberal, not a conservative.
The US political party that tends to support individualism is the Democrat, not the Republican. The US political party that tends to support paternalism is Democrat, not Republican.
Russia implemented socialism in 1917. The experiment failed and its economy and has failed and its people live in despair, unlike those living in the USA. It is estimated that it will require 20 years of consistent 8% growth to bring Russia up to the standard of living of today’s Portugal.
Why are Americans against a tax cut in the US and desirous of more big government implementing socialist-type policies?
Is it because Americans are complacent? Or, is it that Americans don’t realize the long-term destructive impacts of socialism/communism upon their rights and prosperity?
