Classwork in Socialism

Here's a little tale to ponder... An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a 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 got 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 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 and 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 recently had a discussion with Dr. C.L. Gray, the Doctor who runs the “Physicians for Healthcare Reform advocacy group. He mentioned a chilling story of a woman under the Oregon state health care system that was fighting cancer. Instead of the chemotherapy that she needed, she was given two options by the bureaucrats who run this system…..1. Hospice care… or….get this…are you sitting down? Option number “2”was Doctor assisted suicide. Yes, believe it or not, they not only invited her to off herself, but compassionately offered to pay for it. This sounds like a fantasy script from the popular series, the Twilight Zone, but unfortunately this sad story isn't make believe.

This is ObamaCare. You will not like it. The choice to live or die will no longer be yours or God’s, it will be the Messiah Hussein and his Government bureaucrats. Read more about our future….its already here. While you're there, also read more about proposed alternate solutions for reform.

Joe and Poor Wilber discuss common points of view. Without economic freedom, there is no freedom.
