|Why Socialism Does Not Work|
An economics professor at a local college
made the statement that he had never
failed one single student before, but
had once failed an entire class.
That class had insisted that Obama's 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 Obama's plan".
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 received a "B". The students
who studied hard were upset, and the
students who studied little were happy.
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 very little.
When the third test rolled around,
the average was an "F".
As the tests proceeded, the scores never
increased. Bickering, blame and name-calling
all resulted in hard feelings, because nobody was
willing to study for the benefit of anyone else.
To their great surprise, ALL failed.
The professor told them that socialism would
also ultimately fail because when the reward
is great, the effort to succeed is great.
But when the government takes all the reward
away, no one will try or even want to succeed.
And that, my friend, is why
socialism just does not work!
