The Pilgrims: Proving Socialism Doesn’t Work… with their Lives

Every year, Rush Limbaugh reads the back story of Thanksgiving, about how the original Mayflower compact was collectivist – everyone got a plot of land and everything produced went into a common store and everyone had one share.  Unsurprisingly, people quickly figured out that they’d get a share whether they worked or not and the pilgrims nearly starved to death.  Read about it here or listen to Rush below.

About Mystic Cowgirl

I worked overseas in the aid game for longer than I'd like to admit and learned several important things: 1) Third World countries aren't poor because America is rich. They're impoverished due to socialist governments that provide neither rule of law nor basic infrastructures; 2) These socialist governments redistribute wealth from taxpayers to the government workers. There's no benefit to the poor or downtrodden, and certainly not to the general welfare in terms of infrastructure improvements. 3) America is moving toward the Third World model. Rule of law has been subverted because equality under the law is disappearing as special interests carve out exemptions to regulations and special favors under the law. The redistribution of wealth to government began decades ago -- total compensation for government employees now outpaces salaries in the private sector.
