A History Test

Although it is not a huge interest of mine, I do feel it is my responsibility to stay informed on political issues. I read this blog because I like the wit and the perspective.

This post
was interesting to me. My apologies to anyone who might be a Hillary fan. It's really not just her - it's the concept she and certain other politicians are promoting. America has always been a place where hard work, perseverance, and a little luck (or blessing from God really) can equal at least independence, if not prosperity. The socialist mindset allows no one to be successful. Everyone must be equal. Yes, there have been and continue to be abuses by people who have money, but making everyone equal has so many far-reaching consequences. The economy in socialist countries crashes. There is no reason for anyone to work hard - however hard they work, they get the same. The funniest thing to me is the fact that people teaching socialist ideas are usually millionaires. Are they willing to change their lifestyle? I doubt it.

If we leave capitalism, we will begin to change the fabric of what has made America prosperous for generations. OK, done with my political soapbox.
