    An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently 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 will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A.... (substituting grades for dollars - something closer to home and more readily understood by all).
    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. To their great surprise, ALL FAILED 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. It could not be any simpler than that.
    Remember, there IS a test coming up. The 2012 elections.

    These are possibly the 5 best sentences you'll ever read and all applicable to this experiment:
    1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.
    2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
    3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
    4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!
    5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.

    I agree with his premise, but I also think giving to less fortunate is good for a society. However it shouldn't be taken by force and given to whoever some bureaucrats decides deserves it. It should be voluntary and I think better if kept out of governments hands. If it has to be government monitored or sponsored then do it on a local level not federal. IMHO

    If you put aside the fact that this is a campaign marketing trick (politics), the basic concept (microeconomics) is absolutely correct. There is no growth sense in common resources.

    I won't do an analysis here, but here is some food for thought.

    This is so well imbued in the human nature, that Aristotle wrote about it ~2.400 years ago...

    The article has relation with Politics since it uses the name of the most powerful person on Earth(according to Forbes) but hey if you carefully look into the underlying fact then you will see... that the basic principles are very well integrated into online marketing, site flipping, etc.. no matter where U place the rules they just fit in ;)

    Every american should watch at least this 1 video of ron paul!

    watch?v=92OV3RbU3ek

    Also I would like to see some people here with huge lists to use their tools and spam so much like never before.

    scrapebox - xrumer - amr - seonuke ATTACK


    I think everyone who doesn't vote him or support him, is responsable for the hell that will come after you and your family, The ultimate police state and slavery in america... if he doesn't win !

    Also some rich IMers here should consider to spend some money for him, because he will save you - the others will make you bankrott in the end.

    also share as much as you can, if you reach many people as many here do, use your power.. because this is serious!
