5 Ways Socialism Destroys Societies

The main reason for America’s vanishing support of raw capitalism is the disappearance of jobs with decent pay so workers won't need the government’s help. Doug McMillon of Walmart and Jeff Stratton of McDonald's keep almost half of their workers below the poverty line, forcing them to rely on food stamps and poverty programs that the rest of us taxpayers are paying for. When people protesting low wages appeared at a recent speech by Stratton on "work and life, faith and gratitude" he tried to have them arrested. In Ohio recently, people took up a collection so that Wal-mart employees could have Thanksgiving food on the table. McDonald’s recently advised its employees to sell their possessions to make-up for holiday spending debt. The fast food chain’s hotline encouraged employees to apply for food stamps. McMillon made $9,316,441 in total compensation last year. Stratton’s immediate predecessor received $27,741,408 (Source: salary.com) Newt Gingrich recently commented on the Pope’s criticism of America’s trickle down economics. Gingrich said, “I think every Republican should embrace the Pope’s core critique that you do not want to live on a planet with billionaires and people who do not have any food. I think the Pope may, in fact, be starting a conversation at the exact moment the Republican Party itself needs to have that conversation.”

Nothing "illegal" going on, just because you don't like it. Stop the blather and get behind tea party candidates
Not sure about ALL tea party conservatives, especially those attacking border patrols as expansion of government power.
Some survey says the happiest people on earth live in Denmark, perhaps due to less yammering on websites by Mitchell-style gloomies.
Is Ransom literate? Can he read nonpartisan CBO reports? 900,000 workers out of poverty, incomes increased for 16.5 million low-wage workers
stick to subject please you're off in the clouds somewhere
Usual stuff from Mitchell. If you don't like big government, then don't have a foreign policy and forget about "American Exceptionalism"
Sssh…don't let the Pope hear you, that Marxist.
Poor Mitchell, attacking Mom and apple pie and losing
As usual, "what do you cut" is the real question. Screwing the working poor, the elderly, and the unlucky is the usual answer.
