Freedom is not about making everyone’s life “fair,” it is not about making everyone “equal,” it is about giving everyone opportunity. Obama says this is what he is for, giving everyone a fair shot, and making everyone pay their fair share, but he is lying as proven by his policies of tax the rich more to give to the poor. Democrats have a brown thumb, they tax everything and everything they touch they turn into sh*t, then say they need more of your tax dollars to improve it.
Both democracies and socialists always fail, the former because it gives the corrupt a vote in government and the latter because it gives the corrupt control of government. Two sayings exemplify the corruption of both ideologies;
“When you give the mob the vote, they will vote themselves ‘bread and circuses’ until the state bleeds to death.” – Robert A. Heinlein
“The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money.” – Margaret Thatcher
A democracy allowing everyone to vote allows the most corrupt people to vote the most corrupt people to be in control of the government and establish a dictatorship. A dictatorship is required to inflict socialism on a populace wherein those who support the throne prosper at the expense of those who do not, and those who produce the most are the targets of thieves. Democracies and socialists always fail because they eventually crush those who would produce by thieving from them and making them slaves of the state.
The difference between the freedoms of the capitalists over socialists is exemplified by the walls they build. Capitalists build walls to keep thieves out. Socialists build walls to keep people in. One is a fort protecting its people, the other is a prison subjugating their people.
The only paradigm by which socialism and democracy are on opposite ends of the scale is as follows;
Both ends of the spectrum is people who want to be in control of all, making them the same which is why the most accurate portrayal of life is in the paradigm wherein liberty and slavery are at opposite ends.
Liberty is a righteous desire of man, while slavery is Leftist state and why only the Republican form of government established by the Constitution is the best.
“‘Bread and Circuses’ is the cancer of democracy, the fatal disease for which there is no cure. Democracy often works beautifully at first. But once a state extends the franchise to every warm body, be he producer or parasite, that day marks the beginning of the end of the state. For when the plebs discover that they can vote themselves bread and circuses without limit and that the productive members of the body politic cannot stop them, they will do so, until the state bleeds to death, or in its weakened condition the state succumbs to an invader—the barbarians enter Rome.” – Robert A. Heinlein
