An economics professor at Texas Tech said he had never failed a single student before but had, once, failed an entire class. That class had insisted that 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 socialism.
All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A.  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.  But, 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.
The scores never increased as bickering, blame, name calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else. All failed, to their great surprise, 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.
Could not be any simpler than that!

I have watched my parents suffer, work overtime, sacrifice time with family to pay bills and provide for us, and watched my siblings do the same only to watch the IRS unlawfully seize their pensions for trumped up non supported charges and I have had my life threatened numerous times by the police and the courts for speaking out against the atrocities committed on us by private corporate government service providers and foreign corporations. This article strikes a personal nerve. I am very highly trained in multiple fields and should be making $150,000 a year or more, but then they would rob me while I worked and of my life and savings in the end and I would have worked my entire life to serve the beast. I have been unemployed now for 14 years and do not own a car or a house or pay any taxes to support the commie/nazi bastards that are punishing every american for working hard. I sleep at night with a clean conscience. Pray for the nuclear annihilation of Washington D.C. and the destruction of the nazi/Socialist corporate oligarchy! Come on asteroid strike!!
