Why Capitalism Works and Socialism Doesn’t

It appears that “socialism” stands at the forefront of the 2020 election with a multitude of Democratic hopefuls jumping into the race while espousing its tenets.

I detailed recently the naive absurdity of the “Green New Deal” popularized by New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.  Last week I shared my own eye-witness report on what socialism/communism does to cripple and impoverish nations.

The Green New Disaster

We spent the last two days digging out from under a record snowfall in the Seattle area. Every muscle in my arms ache.

Now we get the Green New Deal. Are these people idiots, crazy, or just incredibly deceived?

I’m not buying the Green New Disaster.
