There was a neat video posted here about this. They not only did it by dollars but said how long that money would last. Really interesting to see how much money it took to run the country for a day.

IIRC the tax scheme would get us through a year. Then the question becomes what now.

First off who are you and where is the real piggy.

The problem with the socialist leaders is the same problem with obama and those who are just plain lazy. They have never produced anything. They have never built a business, balanced money in/money out. All they have done is take. When they need more they take more. They never think about tomorrow because they think that they can just take more. If you run a business you see the limit to what you can make. there are limits to time and manpower. When you take from other people you see no limit to what you can take.

You ever play that game as a kid when one tries to hold you down underwater for as long as he can, until you get the upper hand to finally free yourself?

This is where we are as a Nation right now.

Europe was always just left of center, but they're going head on into the bankers' hands, and don't even know it.


Socialist governments NEED to print money, and guess who runs that?

It only works if you're China and buy others' debt with the money you make from having a slave labor force. India is going to start cashing in soon, too.

Things are fucked up.

I am not an economist but I can tell you a couple things

Capitalism is a pyramid. Many folks on the bottom with a few at the top. It's a pretty solid design.

Socialism is an inverted pyramid. You got a few on the bottom with a whole hell of alot on the top. Now I know its impossible to litterally build an inverted pyramid but you can see that it would not last long if you could.


Also with the socialism aspect there is no reason to be great. If you and I do same job and you are great and I am meh and we make the same $$ how long are you going to bust ass and be great.

I can tell you that my personal fortitude, ambition, effort and work ethic will always be with me whether you are "meh" or not.

Your example is what's wrong with a good portion of the population.

I guess what I was meaning is what happens when we tax the rich into extinction and all it does is pays to run the country for a year. What do we do then?

If we drive business into the ground and send even more off shore what happens?

Yeah I know we are on the brink but IMHO I think Europe is even closer to the brink. Seen Greece push the edge and now France.

You ever open a history book that describes what you are talking about?

[Hint] Roman Empire.

Not exactly the same scenario as we have today,[modern world], but exactly the same in concept.

Think bigger picture.

Was that not a good example?

I know that most ideas of a "democracy" have failed after about the 200 year mark.

We have extended that time frame by a few years, but the concept is the same right?

Historically all have failed thus far.

Yes a vast majority of people may be this way but why would anybody do a $30 job and get paid $5. To me that doesn't make any sense.

Thats the problem I have with the whole socialism idea. I want to be rewarded for my work and ideas.

Guess that whole history repeats itself holds true.

Yep, and when we don't learn from it,... we fail as a Nation.

Unfortunately the model is set in place to allow those with no concept of loyalty to Nation, or ethic to vote.

I don't exactly blame them as much as I blame the ones who work hard and have a sense of loyalty to Nation, work ethic, morals, who have not done all they could have.

I am in that camp as well, I admit it. I won't however try and weasel some bullshit bandaid solution to a gaping wound.

Unfortunately for us, your history loop is only a week long, so we get to see how you don't learn from it much faster.
