Well just incase my opponent decided to participate, I'll outline the arguments:

1. Socialism results in restriction of capital flow and results in defecit spending

2. Socialsm results in stagnant economic development

3. U.S. tax policy cuppled with socialism will result in less tax revenue, turning any AC argument

4. Socialism calls for national, single-payr healthcare. This will have disasterous consequences.

communism has never been implemented properly and which form of socialism do you mean? And those dictators who called themselves communists weren't true to Marxist thought, they never got past the socialist stage in the Marxist conception of history so true communism has never existed.
