Thank you to Juan Macias for his excellent article about our misunderstanding of socialism. This should be read in every civics class in our high schools. Politicians are trying to sell us on socialism, but it never works. He gets to the fault of socialism with this paragraph: "This system removes the motivation and desire of the people to work hard for something and eventually the government dries up everyone's wealth. If socialists would understand economics, they would be capitalists."
We have fought wars and lost countless young men to defend our belief in a free country. Let us not forget, and let us not be misled by false ideals. Democracy and the free market system work.
