Why Should We Hope Socialism Fails?

Why is it that we should not hope and pray socialism fails? There are many more Marxists in this country (both legal and illegal) hoping that free market capitalism fails. America's prosperity and power is generated by free markets and individual economic liberty. Unfortunately, that fact is no longer taught in public schools or universities.

The Marxists always fail because in order to redistribute wealth, they must have a constant stream of wealth to loot. Once that stash is gone, socialism collapses under its own weight (as that model cannot generate enough new wealth to go around). Socialism starts eating its own body by rationing the scarcity created by central economic management. That is why the USSR collapsed and communist China is moving towards capitalism.

Socialism always centralizes power, and why that economic model is advocated by statists who jealously guard that power regardless of what it does economically to the people they control. Once control of national production is achieved, the consolidation of that power allows them to effectively reward their cronies (and themselves) while punishing opponents. It all ends the same way, but every socialist dictatorship is typically run by megalomaniacs who truly believe they can make it work where others have failed

Letter to a Liberal on the Shutdown

Clean CRs funding parts of the Government are being passed. Yet, Reid and Obama persist in tabling them. The Government was funded entirely except Obamacare from the very beginning. We wouldn't need a CR had Reid's Senate did their job and passed a budget. Reid hasn't passed a budget in five years. With no budget, the House has every right to discern spending priorities..... especially with a 20 trillion dollar debt looming before us.

You may not appreciate or like the idea that a President is not a dictator, such as a Hugo Chavez, demanding legislation from a rubber stamp Congress. Sorry, it doesn't work that way in this country, and never did.

Obama has already waivered or delayed over 1000 provisions of the Obamacare LAW, unconstitutionally. He has no power to legislate, but yet he did. Therefore, you believe the Republican House, which does have constitutional powers to legislate shouldn't have a say on what gets waived in this law? Only Obama has that authority??? No way.

The last Republican proposal was very reasonable, the individual mandate delay for one year, and forcing Congress and their staffs to eat their own cooking by participating in Obamacare. That was voted down by the Reid Senate. This is a Dingy Harry and Hussein Obama shutdown, period.

Article I, Section 7 of the Constitution requires that “all bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives, but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other bills.”

If any money is to be spent on anything, the bill must come out of the House of Representatives. If no bill is approved by that body and sent to the Senate, no money may be spent
So yes, the House does get to pick and choose what it funds
