You have point but no one gave Cuba chance to try and prove them wrong.

Cuba would have fallen into the same trap. It's is just the anti-soviet sentiments that made the Cubans suffer.

As for many of countries like Sweden, Norway, etc., these systems work because of the demographics are very different when compared to larger countries. The real problem with implementing a socialist type of system in America is we are too big. Many people already exploit the welfare system present in America and implementing more would just be a larger drain on our economy.

America, Sweden, China, EU, etc., are all mixed economies so they have all have a form of capitalism. Sweden is not a purely socialist system, there are elements of capitalism within it.

Someone with a legitimate response? Wtf is this?

Purely socialist systems are not self sustainable and a form of capitalism is required for the countries maintenance. Take for example China, it is a not a purely socialist system anymore. Capitalism is required for China's economy to grow.

Another thing to note with a socialist system is since the government is in charge of the means of production, the government must focus on economic growth or else the country will collapse. The Soviet Union devoted the majority of its resources on military spending and the economy suffered because of this.

It's a matter of who is the lesser evil now. We needed an FDR or a Teddy we got someone who's basically Taft. In a final note too much government is terrible and will only work in a fascist environment too little and we have pure capitalism. Kennedy had the right idea and the few after him: Drop tax rates for a year and institute a few employment programs. We still have recessions but they're light. Now it's all to caught up in a big shouting match. Barry will win the election, economy will improve, Dems take credit, reds retire and do one of two things: Change their game plan or become more extreme. Unless the O man makes some head role for the collapse and fix energy policy we're doomed. In the mean time our blood boils too the point we fight on the internet!
User avatar #51 - corkscrew (04/23/2012) [-]
Addressing your point about Obama doing something, he will do something and something more extreme in his second term. No president would ever think of doing something without first thinking about how it will affect their chances for re-election. If you look at most presidents, they become more extreme from one term to another for that very reason.
That's why I've heard some ideas like limiting a president to one 6 year term so they could try and get done what they want to get done.
Now, having read this whole "argument", Ron Paul would not make a good president based solely on the fact he wants to implement the gold standard. Sure, the Federal Reserve isn't the greatest idea in the world but it is better than the gold standard. What people fail to realize about it is how business is set up to operate/exchange paper currency. You would need to create new cash registers to hold coins instead of bills, develop a new, cheap way to test for counterfeits and, it would also just be uncomfortable to carry around bags of coins.

I don't know why nobody sees the major flaw in it. It would be similar to switching over to the metric system (though Thomas Jefferson did invent it). It would cost billions of dollars to do, which others have pointed out we don't have.
#64 - dwarfman (04/23/2012) [-]
Metric system makes more sense would streamline trade. Not during our current economic situation mind you we have enough costs. Also on the gold standard, we are the reserve currency. During the depression it was a common practice of foreign investors to cash their dollars for gold. This created a strong dollar which is detrimental to a bad economy. If we had it now our reserves would be picked clean in weeks!
User avatar #70 - corkscrew (04/23/2012) [-]
metric system wouldn't make sense now because we are so used to it. And what do you mean it is detrimental to bad economy? Does that mean it would be good or bad?
#73 - dwarfman (04/23/2012) [-]
A strong dollar means our goods cost more means we do not sell as much. Look at the Japanese economy right now it's a shining example of the problem. Now imagine this worsened by mass amount of gold leaving the economy! Draw a simple supply/demand chart and you'll see.

Better question, I don't even know what we are talking about anymore. We seem to be going everywhere. =/

As for corporate taxes, a flat tax usually implies that all loopholes are removed.

I don't like any of the major party candidates, I'll probably just vote for Gary Johnson, but will end up having Obama for 4 more years so it doesn't really mater.

LOL Ok. You've seen the fire ever politician on capital hill and their grandmothers have come under lately right? I like this it is transparency which will grow more in time (more so if democrats are in power). State governments are shown to be corrupt and far less transparent. Look at California over the last decade and half. Now you propose to weaken the Feds and give power to the states? LOL Why don't do we just sign ourselves over to mafia while we're at it? The current issues with washington have simple fixes: Ban lobbying (publicly expose those against this and rally the public), force those with any personal gain on a matter to recuse themselves, remove the filibuster, the list goes on. If what you say comes to pass I'm moving to Norway!
#19 - reaganomix (04/23/2012) [-]
Yes, look at the overly liberal California government that can't keep its finances in check.

That situation is better than an overly liberal Federal Government. How much debt are we in?

15,000,000,000,000 <-----

Also, LOL, you are implying there is absolutely no corruption in the Federal Government. The difference between this is that one government enforces its jurisdiction to 300 million people, and the other doesn't. How do you plan to pass all those new laws with politicians from over 50 states? Of course there are cases where a socialistic government can work very well, but not for a country that governs over so many people.

If we started drilling tomorrow then gas prices would decline to below 90 cents. Im not gonna even start to say Alaska's oil but North Dakota has a shit ton of oil.

As in government funding that is key word for Tax Payers Money. I don't know if you pay taxes yet but my money is going to teenagers fuckup's thanks to Obama care. Health isn't about being pregnant. AND if you were in George Bush's shoes and 9/11 just happened what would you do? Bush needed to protect you and me and he had no choice but to do so or if he didn't the citizens would of created a shit storm. And Obama signed a 4 year extension on the Patriot Act so go cry to his dumbass.

YOU JUST CONTRADICTED YOURSELF. You said bailing out big businesses was bad and now ur admitting Obama did it so its good, your a hypocrite at its finesse.

Ford dealerships sell new Toyotas and Mercedes,Bmw and other foreign cars? Since when? Am I living in a fantasy world here.

I Do agree on one point you made that stands out that Americas cars suck dick now a days. In the 70's thats when it was American cars at its best. I do give credit for the Chevrolet Corvette though, that car is a machine. And Hummer H2 but of course the US discontinued it. And its funny cause my dad owns a Corvette and Hummer H2 lol.

"Anyone that sacrifices liberty for security deserves neither" -Benjamin Franklin

Obama and Bush are the same people.

I never said bailing out companies was good. Care to point out where I said this? Read the last sentences I wrote.
If Ford was not bailed out by the government, Ford Dealerships would be shut down because Ford would be unable to sustain itself. Then another successful company will pick up what Ford left behind like factories and dealerships. The reason American car companies failed was because they had terrible business practices, making cars only last a few years, making people pay for attachments for cars when foreign companies were including them in the whole package, the constant production of Hummers when the people were demanding fuel efficient vehicles.

Also, why do you think I like Obama? I don't, but I do not distance myself from facts. As for the contraception thing, there are plenty of things that we have to pay for even do we don't like. We need to focus on the larger picture rather than something as insignificant as contraception. We need to focus on larger problems before we can actually discuss social issues. Yes I think it is retarded that we have to pay for stuff like this, but really there are far more important things to worry about.

Ok listen though, contraception is not good for us. Democrats want tax payers to give money to those who forgot to pull out and now need a abortion. The tax payers shouldn't have to pay for your fuck up. And all of America is fucking brain washed in that case cause all Democrats want to do is fucking scribble out the constitution and fill it in with 'CHANGE'.

And they bail out large corporations for a reason. Would you trust buying a brand new car at the Ford Dealership or Mr.John's dealership down the street?
User avatar #550 - reaganomix (04/12/2012) [-]
Fuck your contraception, I don't give a flying fuck about contraception, but as long as hospitals are taking government funding (this will not change), They need to make sure people are healthy I don't care if the church is religious or not. The government is suppose to enforce separation of church and state. Also you talk about the constitution, but what party signed in Patriot act?

Also what the fuck are you talking about. First of all, Obama is the one who bailed out the Big three Auto companies, someone you hate. Good job fuck yourself on that one. And bailouts completely go against the free market, businesses rise and fall all the time.

The dealerships would be selling foreign cars instead of home made ones. You cannot prop up failing businesses, that is Keynesian fallacy. If the economy is going to grow, it requires the production of goods people want, not some shitty American car that only stays afloat because it is owned by the government.
