Socialism and Redistributing the WealthI had a conversation with a republican in my office yesterday when he brought up ‘redistributing wealth’. I explained to him when you close a factory in the US and take it to Mexico or China you get this…1000s of people in the US out of jobsThe price of the product has NOT decreasedThe profit of the product has increased ONE person is making a ton of money1000s of people are making none 1000s of people are too poor to afford his product1000s of people are out of a job, not paying taxes and are now looking to the government for assistanceVERSUSKeep the jobs here1000s of people are making a descent livingThe owner is still making a ton of money b/c now people have jobs and can buy his productMoral is up b/c workers are not displaced & can take care of their familyTell me… how is this socialism? And how is the first scenario putting ‘COUNTRY FIRST’ - I think it should be 'CEO FIRST' ?
