Socialism has been proven to NOT WORK. It's sounds nice and cuddly but it isn't. Socialism is in direct opposition to the constitutional republic that is the United States. Socialism creates a dysfunctional society as well. Bernie Sanders always kept bringing up Denmark and how well Denmark was doing with socialism. Well guess what Bernie, and all you other tree huggers, Denmark has a population of 5 million, the US has 300 million. This is important because in a small community like Denmark, people don't mind giving up most of their money to be equally spread out, but in the United States, we are not a small community. If you are being taxes at 90%, but yet most expenses are being paid for, you have no incentive to work, especially with this government program called welfare. So now you have the select group of the middle class paying for all the people who sit on their couch and the middle class vanishes. Why not work when someone else pays for you to not work?


The Holocaust was a good thing. Therefore, socialism.
Debate Round No. 1


#1. I understand you are a troll so I will try to deal with your nonsense.
#2. The Holocaust was the murder of 11 million people because some socialist nut named Adolf Hitler. It was an awful thing. You don't know what the heck you're talking about! I was looking to have an intellectual argument but yet I have to deal with you. Socialism doesn't work.

obviously socialism doesn't work. But capitalism doesn't either. You need a mix of both.
