A man named Tom Nicholson posted on his Facebook account the sports car that he had just bought and how a man approached and told him that the money used to buy this car could’ve fed thousands of less fortunate people. His response to this man made him famous on the internet.
READ his story as stated on Facebook below.
A guy looked at my Corvette the other day and said, “I wonder how many people could have been fed for the money that sports car cost?”
I replied “I’m not sure”:
· it fed a lot of families in Bowling Green, Kentucky who built it,
· it fed the people who make the tires,
· it fed the people who made the components that went into it,
· it fed the people in the copper mine who mined the copper for the wires,
· it fed people in at Caterpillar who make the trucks that haul the copper ore.
· It fed the trucking people who hauled it from the plant to the dealer
· and fed the people working at the dealership and their families.
“BUT,… I have to admit, I guess I really don’t know how many people it fed.”
This is the difference between capitalism and socialism/communism (the welfare mentality).
When we buy something, we put money in people’s pockets and give them dignity for their skills.
Whenever government “gives” people something for nothing, they rob them of their dignity, self-worth and their desire for self-improvement, subjecting them to the slavery and tyranny of governmental dependency.
Capitalism is freely exchanging your money for something you value. Socialism is having the government take your money [taxes] against your will and give it to someone else for doing nothing.
I Think this is well written and well thought out. If you agree please send it to your friends. If you disagree send it to your friends anyway, and have a nice day.
