    The indisputable, undeniable fact is that capitalism has been wholly responsible for raising the standard of living for all of mankind. For thousands of years, mankind toiled in misery under Kings and Queens. In 1776, Americans rise up and defeat the British. They implement a republic politically and capitalism economically.

    Shortly there after, mankind sees the boom of the indisutrial revolution. Products are produced faster and cheaper. These products drastically improve the quality of life (tractors and other farm equipment result in more food being brought to market faster and at less cost, resulting in less famine and better nutrition - resulting in healthier humans who live longer).

    That trend has continued in every sector (healthcare, technology, agriculture, etc.). Experts predict that by 2050, machines will do ALL of our work for us. Even healthcare. All doctors and nurses will be robots functioning off of AI. WIth connections to the internet and data being shared in real time, they will be able to triage faster, treat faster, and with less mistakes. Once robots are handling the work - healthcare will be free for all. And it is scalable too. While we simply don’t have the brain power in people to produce enough doctors for current demand, we will be able to manufacture an infinite number of robots to meet demand. Universal healthcare coverage at no cost with no wait.

    So why should progressives embrace capitalism now? Becaus the sooner we can reach these achievements - the sooner that progressives can realize their dream of being coddled from cradle to grave without having to produce anything in return for society. I am certain that if progressives were to stop obstructing and were to support a true constitutional conservative agenda, we could cut that 2050 date by a minimum of a decade (and most likely by more).

    Because government and government intervention has failed so miserably - the free market is now tackling healthcare (powerhouses such as Google, Amazon, Bill Gates, and Warren Buffett). The faster we get the failed left-wing ideology out of the way, the faster these great minds can innovate and bring to market the solutions to everything that progressives want.

    Google is a great company. I hope Trump’s war on tech doesn’t derail their plans

    President Trump has fostered success for ALL companies. And many are joining Google in this endeavor.

    The more we can help them succeed - the more we will all benefit.
