    I don't see ANY purpose to have ANY Socialist policies in the US... If any of you out there feel like making an argument for why we need to have a "mixed" economy, or a purely Socialist one, I invite you to make your case.

    I will make my case for why Capitalism is SUPERIOR and having Government meddle with the Economy, and the lives and freedom of our people, is a recipe for disaster.

    Serious arguments please, Sarcastic Clowns need not apply.

    Socialism always fails. It always causes problems, it always makes messes. Every big issue in our economy can be tied back to socialism.

    What kills me is that about half the people here attack Capitalism as being at fault for the nations problems... Exactly what alternative are they proposing?

    They can't bring themselves to state the name of the replacement... they can't bring themselves to admit they want more Socialism... If they did, they'd have to defend Socialism as being a viable alternative, or even "good" when mixed with Capitalism.

    Since they have never really looked at where their beliefs stand, many don't even seem to realize what it means to advocate for the destruction of Capitalism... but they know we'd be better off with less of it.

    Only in a free market could this nation have come so far. So many great stories of courageous, honorable, people living a dream. The dream that they can take an Idea and turn it into opportunity.

    Keep this in mind.. no one tries to get into a communist/ socialist country. Everyone's wants to come to America. Because they know they have a chance.

    Capitalism is the only way. FREEDOM = EQUALITY.
