    I see now why leftists are so angry and bitter all the time. Their ideology is a guaranteed loss. How? Let me explain.

    If the right wins in elections or talking points, the left loses. Thats a loss. Easy enough.

    But if the left wins? Well, we are seeing time and time again throughout society where socialism and communism have failed. The entitlement lifestyle always fails. Greece is a perfect example. The USSR. North Korea. Cuba. Venezuela. If Canada had to spend money on national defense, they'd be in trouble to. Luckily, they got us. But, Spain is in trouble. England is in trouble. Germany is in trouble. All the socialist and communist states have failed or are failing.

    So, if the left wins this culture war, all of the lefties will eventually end up rioting in the streets because they lost their benefits or free food or free rent or whatever. Whats the saying? "Eventually you run out of other people's money."?

    So, the lefties know they've latched onto a failed philosophy. So, win or lose, they end up losing either way.

    And before some bitter, whining lefties start crying "OH YEAH well how has that capitalism worked out for America, huh?"

    It's worked out so good, our poor have obesity problems. So good, our minority black population would be the 5th richest nation on Earth if counted seperately. So good our "poor" on average own 2 cars, a color TV, fridge, washer and dryer, have air conditioning, microwave, cell phone, and get subsidized food, shelter and education.

    Sorry lefties. If you beat us in this ideological battle, well, we're all gonna lose and end up like Greece one day. But if we win, well, we'll keep erecting crosses over top of our Wal-Marts and driving pickup trucks, while you still lose. Either way, you lose!:lol:

    Just listening to a talk radio show, and apparantly Oompa Loompa SC nominee wrote a senior thesis pondering how socialism never took hold in America? She wondered how in a free society, a socialist party (perhaps a National Socialist Party?) could never find it's way.

    Well, the obvious reason would be that it is just a bad philosophy of governing. It doesn't work. See Greece.

    But the troubling issue is that it puzzled her. Because in HER mind, it's a wonderful idea. It's sort of like asking how could Gatorade not become popular in a gym? It's like DUH it's a wonderful thing, I should right a senior thesis on it because it is so baffling on how this wonderful form of government never happened here? With all our resources?

    Yep. To 90% of us the answer to her thesis is : Because socialism and communism suck and end up failing, they are a bad idea.

    But she is among the 10% who see the USA without socialism a lot like a gym without Gatorade.

    Win/lose? I guess it all depends on what the ultimate reward is...

    Luke 16:13-15…

    [13] No servant can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and mammon (money)

    [14] The Pharisees, who loved money, heard all this and were sneering at Jesus.

    [15] He said to them, "You are the ones who justify yourselves in the eyes of men, but God knows your hearts. What is highly valued among men is detestable in God's sight.

    I'm thankful and grateful to live in a country where the poorest among us can be fat and have stuff.

    Ah but if only it were only as simple a world as you imagine it to be.

    How easily we could solve our problems if that were the case.

    The difference between Christian charity and theft... is CHOICE.

    If I rob you at gunpoint, and then give your money to a beggar, you've still been mugged. And I don't think God is likely to consider the robbery as mitigating on the Day of Judgment if you've been a bastard all your life. It wouldn't be as if you'd made a personal choice to help a beggar.
