There is a real way a capitalist looks at a situation verses a socialist doing the same. This simple example sums up why many socialist’s hearts are sometimes in the right place but their minds fall well short of reality:
A socialist looking at a Corvette turned to his capitalist friend who owned the magnificent automobile and said, “I wonder how many people could have been fed for the money that sports car cost you?”
The capitalist replied, “I am not sure. It fed a lot of families in Bowling Green, Kentucky who built it. It fed the people who make the tires. It fed the people who made the components that went into it. It fed the people in the copper mine who mined the copper for the wires. It fed people in Decatur IL. at Caterpillar who make the trucks that haul the copper ore. It fed the trucking people who hauled it from the plant to the dealer, and it fed the people working at the dealership and their families. BUT,… I have to admit, I guess I really don’t know how many people it fed.”
That is the difference between capitalism and welfare mentality. When you buy something, you put money in people’s pockets, and give them dignity for their skills.
When you give someone something for nothing, you rob them of their dignity and self worth.
Capitalism is freely giving your money in exchange for something of value.
Socialism is taking your money against your will and shoving something down your throat that you never asked for.
Pass the message on!
