Wordy Wednesday: Socialism

image

I was particularly off put by seeing Bernie Sanders on snap chat this weekend, and by the incredulous number of Americans planning to vote for him. Socialism sucks, and I decided to use this Wordy Wednesday to express how much it sucks.

“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.”

– Winston Churchill

“The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other peoples’ money.”

– Margaret Thatcher

“The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.”

– Winston Churchill

“A government policy to rob Peter to pay Paul can be assured of the support of Paul.”

– George Bernard Shaw

“Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word, equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.”

– Alexis de Tocqueville

“Socialism in general has a record of failure so blatant that only an intellectual could ignore or evade it.”

– Thomas Sowell

“In practice, socialism didn’t work. But socialism could never have worked because it is based on false premises about human psychology and society, and gross ignorance of human economy.”

– David Horowitz

“How do you tell a Communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an Anti-communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin.”

– Ronald Reagan

“Socialism violates at least three of the Ten Commandments: It turns government into God, it legalizes thievery and it elevates covetousness. Discussions of income inequality, after all, aren’t about prosperity but about petty spite. Why should you care how much money I make, so long as you are happy?”

– Ben Shapiro

“The reason socialism has failed around the world every time it’s been tried is because people in socialist countries have looked at the United States and have said if they can have it that good, we can. It’s a failed, flawed ideology, but if you ask socialists why it’s always failed, it’s because the United States has stood in the way.”

– Brad Thor

“No one should suffer from the great delusion that any form of communism or socialism which promotes the dictatorship of the few instead of the initiative of the millions can produce a happier or more prosperous society.”

– Charles E. Wilson

“The reason this country continues its drift toward socialism and big nanny government is because too many people vote in the expectation of getting something for nothing, not because they have a concern for what is good for the country.”

– Lyn Nofziger

“All socialism involves slavery.”

– Herbert Spencer

“There is nothing in socialism that a little age or a little money will not cure.”

– Will Durant

“It doesn’t benefit me to lie to people. They’re eventually going to find out the truth, and then where am I? That’s the problem with liberalism and socialism, by the way: it has to be propped up by lies.”

– Rush Limbaugh

“To pursue a so-called Third Way is foolish. We had our experience with this in the 1960s when we looked for a socialism with a human face. It did not work, and we must be explicit that we are not aiming for a more efficient version of a system that has failed.”

– Vaclav Klaus

“I was guilty of judging capitalism by its operations and socialism by its hopes and aspirations; capitalism by its works and socialism by its literature.”

– Sidney Hook

“Socialism is when government’s taking care of you, you send all your money to the government, the government decides how to spend it instead of letting the people spend it and make all those decisions.”

– Bob Latta

“I believe that all forms of socialism have been proven over time to result in a loss of both economic and civil liberties, with increasing poverty.”

– John Mackey

The same people wondering why they’re so miserable are the same ones trying to find something negative to say about a free vacation lol. Good things happen to those who are grateful
  • Not gonna lie, both of these pictures bother me a lot and I was tempted to edit and had a lowkey nervous breakdown looking at them and I’m not saying that for disingenuous sympathy “ur perf” comments but bc it’s real and I caught myself and even though we all are projecting curated versions of our lives on here to an extent we can at least make a choice to what degree we participate in fake toxic 🐃💩. Also while some people might not understand why these pictures are so upsetting to me, when you know what your body is capable of and how far below that standard you are I believe it’s completely normal and healthy to be disappointed in yourself and want to do better. But if you’re going to edit your body in pics it should be with diet and exercise not Facetune and filters. So hopefully posting bikini pics will suck less in the summer lol
