Socialism in Action

Socialism is such an inspiration. The AP's Eliane Engeler's description of North Korea on Yahoo! reminds me of the New York City subway system under Mayor Ed Koch.

>GENEVA – A U.N. human rights investigator accused North Korean authorities Monday of committing widespread torture in prisons that he called "death traps."

Life in the reclusive communist-ruled country is "dire and desperate," said Vitit Muntarbhorn, adding that people are denied enough food to survive.

Muntarbhorn told the 47-nation Human Rights Council that whole families are routinely sent away for the crimes of one member. Once imprisoned, they suffer greatly.

Don't you get it? A free America is the ONLY reason socialism is not working. Doctors, lawyers, teachers, (and just about everyone else) all emigrate to America because they can live a better life here. This causes shortages, waiting lists, rationed healthcare. But once America is forced down to the the lowest common demoninator standard of living, the incentive to flee from these countries will be gone, and the one world socialist union will be complete.

I wish I were joking, but this begs some validity. As was the talk of 2 American nations, one socialist and one capitalist, the socialist nation would most definately fail, as business and people flocked to the nation with lower taxes and more opportunity. Just look at California vs Arizona. The former, going broke. The latter, gaining from the former's exodus.
