CAPITALISM VS. SOCIALISM

      There are many different, conflicting views as to what exactly capitalism is, and is not. Whether or not it’s a good thing, along with the debate of Socialism are major topics of conversation in the United States. It should be common sense that we must create jobs to create wealth for our country. We must work to reduce taxation while keeping government spending in check and using technology so that more people work rather than using their hands doing laborious tasks. We must effectively use our resources and provide opportunities for all Americans.

      The United States is a nation that is very dependent on technology, but yet so many people do not understand how it works. We need better education for everyone, especially minorities. “The problem with socialism is that eventually, you run out of other people’s money.” This infamous quote by Margaret Thatcher sums up the view of most Americans. There are many different, conflicting views as to what exactly capitalism is, and is not. Whether or not it’s a good thing, along with the debate of Socialism are major topics of conversation in the United States. It should be common sense that we must create jobs to create wealth for our country. We must work to reduce taxation.

      Some people believe that capitalism is the cause of our financial crisis, some say it’s the result. Some are convinced socialism is the only solution, others say that it is not the cause but rather a side effect. Regardless of where your opinion lies on these polarizing issues, it should be common sense that we must create jobs to create wealth for our country. It should be obvious that we must reduce taxation while keeping government spending in check and using technology so that more people work rather than using their hands. There’s so much conflicting information on what exactly capitalism is, and who can agree on what it is? What we do know is that jobs are absolutely at the forefront of our country’s success.

      Let’s work to reduce taxes while keeping spending in order and creating solutions through innovative advancements. Not all of us are the same. Our opinions differ. But one thing that we should all agree on is that we must create jobs to create wealth for our country. We should be aware that we need to lower taxes and keep government spending in check, while using technologies to help us expand and do business faster, thereby creating more employment opportunities for all. Republican ideals promote Capitalism with their tax reform, small government, and trade protection for American businesses. However, Democrats seem to want to promote Socialism with welfare and open borders.

      The GOP tax plan seems more like Socialism to me because it helps the rich and takes from the poor, but I’ll let you make that judgment. In the political world, Republicans seem to promote limited government, tax reforms, and protectionist trade policies. Democrats seem to want more welfare programs and open borders. Republicans say their tax plan will help lower- and middle-class Americans while Democrats say the GOP plan provides a massive tax break for the wealthy.

      Only you can decide which party’s agenda is better for you. Libertarians tend to be first exposed to conservative concepts that seem quite cromulent at the time, and most of them continue their pursuit of truth in earnest. They often find themselves on quite a steep learning curve when they begin to encounter views that run contrary to everything they’ve been taught. But don’t worry; if you’re a libertarian, you are always welcome here (so long as you don’t interrupt your fellow Republicans).
