A Lesson In Socialism From A Brilliant Professor Of Economics

In living free, Obama, Socialism on January 28, 2010 at 5:12 pm

Isn’t it funny how many of America’s youth support the idea of socialism until they actually give it a try? One professor decided to introduce his class to the principles of socialism first hand. Here is what happened:

An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had once failed an entire class.  That class had insisted that Obama’s socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.

The professor then said, “OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama’s plan”.
All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A…

After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B.  The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy.  As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little.

The second test average was a D!  No one was happy.

When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F.

As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.

All failed, to their great surprise, and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed.
Could not be any simpler than that.
Remember, there is a test coming up.  The mid-term election in 2010!

Let this be a lesson to the bottom half that prefers to do just enough to get by; when the people who carry the extra weight are no longer rewarded for their efforts, they too will stop performing. Socialism is a recipe for disaster and stands for everything America does not.

UPDATE: Speaking of socialism, Gateway Pundit says Pelosi will ‘pole vault’ health care through Congress if she needs to.
