    Why Socialism Won't Work

    A LESSON THAT OUGHT TO BE TAUGHT EVERY FOUR YEARS IN U.S PUBLIC SCHOOLS





    An economics professor at Texas Tech University said he had never
    failed a single student before but had, once, failed an
    entire class. That class had insisted that socialism worked
    and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a
    great equalizer. The professor then said ok, we will have an
    experiment in this class on socialism.

    All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the
    same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an
    A. After the first test the grades were averaged and
    everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset
    and the students who studied little were happy. But, as the
    second test rolled around, the students who studied little
    had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided
    they wanted a free ride too; so they studied little. The
    second test average was a D! No one was happy. When the 3rd
    test rolled around the average was an F.

    The scores never increased as bickering, blame, name
    calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study
    for the benefit of anyone else.

    All failed, to their greatsurprise. The professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the
    effort to succeed is great; but when government takes all
    the reward away; no one will try or want to succeed.

    Could not be any simpler than this.....
    The strongest reason for the people to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against the tyranny of government.
    -Thomas Jefferson

    That is why our masters in Washington are so anxious to disarm us. They are not afraid of criminals. They are afraid of a populace which cannot be subdued by tyrants. Jeff Cooper'
