Now that I’m a big girl, I’ve learned a thing or two. For example, that there has never been a Socialistic government to equalize the income of its citizens through “elevation.” Instead, the innovative people are relegated to lower positions to make things fair. It takes money to fund free education, free healthcare, abortions, climate reform, gun control and on and on and on. Since a Socialistic government does not have the ability to create wealth on it’s own, everything must be bankrolled by the people. Since hard work is no longer rewarded, the motivation to originate, revolutionize or modernize dissolves. It’s a crippling and deadly cycle.
