Socialism economics

Humorous, but factual also.

I have to read this book. Finally, a book/study that puts the ills of socialism in a context we can all relate to:

It sounds like they applied the concept of "Victory Gin" to their analysis. Once the system has you smothered, you no longer care what you are drinking - you just want an escape. It's the same reason prison inmates make toilet wine.
...because escaping from socialism is just like trying to escape from prison.

Too many Americans are going to learn the hard way that you can vote yourself INTO socialism - but you have to SHOOT your way out of it -
...but hey - lets all feel the 'Burn

But, but, but, we're going to do it better and smarter than everywhere else that's tried and failed. I mean look at our up and coming leadership. How could it possibly fail.
