*Warning* *opinion*... Okay, so i was thinking about it recently and i think "small gov" and socialism can co-exist. But by small gov i dont mean responsibility but number of people they govern over. Ex: Sweden, low population (relative) and socialist. You wouldn't be able to have social programs like that at a federal level in the United States due to inefficiency with large populations, but i think that if you really let states govern themselves in terms of socialistic ideals, then they could be more efficient. So maybe let a few states that want to try socialized medicine, higher taxes, etc etc. And if it works other states will follow along, if it doesnt work then we stay where we are. Idk just a thought.

Allright, this may be confusing, but no one form of government works. We need a mix of Capitalism and Socialism to funstion.'Nuff said.
User avatar #135 to #132 - theblacksheep (12/10/2012) [-]
Agreed, my example of Sweden is great. From my understanding "Scandinavian Socialism" is a mix of socialism and capitalism. So they have higher taxes and socialized medicine, but they have a free market (with regulations just like USA to protect buyers from companies, etc).

hell yeah I think states' rights is awesome (although I can't say the same for slavery), but I think that the reasoning behind doing lots of stuff at a federal level like military, currency, and healthcare, is that, well, okay, there's a few reasons. First of all, it seems more effective to implement just one plan overall than to try up to 50 different ones because it's less confusing when going between states, less paperwork, more efficient. When you pool resources towards one cohesive goal it's simply more effective than, like each state having its own space program and stuff like that. Also, you'll run into things like the prisoner's dilemma where it's in the group's interest to do one thing but in the individual's interest to do something else ie. the group wants to have socialized healthcare but it's in the individual state's interest to just let their citizens go to the nearest socialist state and have them pick up the bill- the same could be said about military, how each state wants to spend as little as possible, but the group wants to have something resembling a functional defense system (which I'll admit the US has and then some). If you could find a way to overcome these issues, though, then that'd be awesome then since you'd be able to basically pick and choose which type of government you'd want to live under and everyone could just stop arguing about whether to implement provision X and focus more on important things, like cute pictures of cats :p
User avatar #131 to #124 - theblacksheep (12/10/2012) [-]
Hahaha I enjoyed reading that. Yeah, you'd have to have a lot of I.D. check, etc etc. But you could still leave things like military at the federal level. I just mean basically social programs going to the state level.

I'm not gonna let this battle be dictated by facts
I'm rich! I got fat stacks and super PACs
We all know what went down in that 2008 election
You're a decent politician with a winning complexion
You're all Barack and no bite, been no change and we're all still hoping
That you'll shut your mouth, but like Guantanamo Bay they're both open
You're from the windy city, where you're looking pretty with your blowhards
But come January, you'll be left evicted and with no job
Raw rhymes stronger than my jaw line when I spit a phrase
Knocking you harder than front doors in my old mission days
You see this silver spoon, this dug Mass out of debt
Took you four years to drop unemployment down below 8%!
You feel that Barry? You're old news, everyone's having doubts
And your rhymes are as weak as this economy that you've done nothing about
Call me a vicious businessman cause Romney's stealing this race
I'll go Bain Capital on your donkey ass, restructure your face!

Republicans need a puppet and you fit
Got their hands so far up your rear, call you Mitt
I'm the Head of State, you're like a head of cabbage
'Bout to get smacked by my stimulus package
You're a bad man with no chance, you can't even touch me
I got four more years (two terms!) in the White House, just trust me
I hope you saved your best rhymes for the second half
'Cause right now, I'm 47% through kicking your ass!

I really want to like Obama. In many ways I do. He has stirred a passion and excitement in young, impoverished and minority Americans unlike and other recent president. He seems very likable overall and the kind of guy you wanna have a beer with. He's hip. But it's his policies and ideals which break the deal for me. He is expanding the role of the government (and particularly the executive) far beyond what the Constitution and framers had in mind and the fact of the matter is that our problems have only gotten worse over the past for years. Unemployment, the national debt and taxes are all on the rise. Obama looks great on the outside but when you analyze what kind of actions he has taken and what the results are, he just simply isn't a good president.

Here come the red thumbs...
User avatar #136 to #60 - pokemonstheshiz (12/10/2012) [-]
I have to disagree. He himself has not expanded the role of government by much, no more so than any other president has or will do. Unemployment is actually on the decline. As for the debt, don't you find it strange that the highest debt percentage vs. GDP seems to always come after wars? Before we started invading Iraq and such there was actually predicted to be a large surplus (a couple trillion). Taxes are on the rise, but we also have some of the lowest taxes in the developed world, and we have a very bad health care system as well compared to the developed world. I disagree with a government health care system, but something definitely needs to be done. And he's the only non-3rd party candidate to have some sort of plan for fixing it.
He's nowhere near my first choice for office, but he's alright. It's like getting a B- on your exam, not what you hoped, but not that bad

I didn't vote for him. I thought he was poor choice for the Republican nomination. He was the anti-obama. Meaning he was uber rich, old, and white. And not even Christian or definitively conservative. I didnt want him to be our leader, I just wanted him rather than obama. But I didnt vote for him.

Not trying to say your opinion is bad, some of the things you are basing it off are not necessarily Obama's fault.

First, you can't blame the economy solely on the president, because the president does not have total power over the economical policies of the country; this is a shared power between executive and the legislative sectors of the government. And even if he did have total power, it is not only the US that has been in recession in recent years. Most of the world has been recession the past years and it is not necessarily because of the US (in fact, it is probably that the opposite is true: US is doing bad because everyone else is doing bad as well).

Also, the unemployment rate is a weird situation. Obama's kim jongistration has effectively created more jobs in the US, however the unemployment rate (percentage-wise) has been on the rise. It is illogical to suggest that the rising unemployment rate is solely Obama's fault considering he actually created jobs. There are several external factors that could have had an effect on the unemployment rate. For example, the increase of university graduates, the increase in the work force population, the increase in cost of production, etc...

Increase on taxes. See, this is what I don't understand about Americans. They complain about high taxes when their national economy is **** . When a country is in recession and it has **** tons of debt, the logical thing is to try to pay off that freaking debt. How do you pay debt? With money, How do you collect it? with taxes. If you keep lowering taxes (as the people want it to) you will never be able to pay off the debt.

Not trying to defend Obama, because I personally think neither candidates would've solved the current US economy with their policies. I'm just saying that if you going to criticize someone, use the correct arguments.

#104 to #92 - icouldgetsome (12/10/2012) [-]
Fox News has made us extremely divisive. The tripe that they put out on the airwaves has made average Americans vote against their own interests. Also, if you want to talk about razor-thin margins, it was 1 supreme court vote that gave Dubya the presidency. Because of that 1 vote, a recount was not allowed in Florida, which Dubya won by ~500 votes. He lost the popular vote by 500,000 votes. Then we started two extremely unpopular wars which cost about 10,000 american lives, exploded the debt because he simultaneously cut taxes while waging these wars which each cost about 1 trillion dollars. He also sets up a vast security state, with unprecedented power given to the federal government to monitor Americans' lives. Then he completely shreds the remaining regulations on wall street and we end up with the 2008 financial crisis. I love hearing about how Obama has divided this country, trampled on the constitution, ruined our economy, hurr durrr. It's utter ******** that dumb ass Americans are hand-fed by Fox News and GOP business criminals.

"Self-entitled douches".

Wow. If you were representing what a republican is and stands for, and how one acts, I would be disappointed. Just because someone has a different political view, doesn't make them a douche, nor does being uninformed. No one ever wins an argument by calling the opposite side a douche.

Many people don't know how politics work and simply vote for who is more popular (this is more true in younger people). Instead of calling them names, why don't you help young people understand politics?

With so many people on entitlements (as a result of the increasing amount of unemployed Americans), the people are far more subservient to the government than ever before. I'm not jumping to hasty conclusions, but tell me I'm wrong in saying under Obama's kim jongistration the government has expanded it's influence and power in the people's lives. Universal, mandatory health care is rolling out. The government bailed out the auto industry (im not saying its bad, im just saying its bold). And most importantly, more people depend on the government for free **** than ever before. Who will ever vote for the guy who wants to reduce/do away with welfare? People are increasingly becoming symbiotically linked to the governments power and authority
