    How capitalism works

    The Corvette.

    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 am 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 Decatur IL. 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.

    That is the difference between capitalism and welfare mentality.

    When you buy something, you put money in people’s pockets and give them dignity for their skills.

    When you give someone something for nothing, you rob them of their dignity and self-worth.

    Capitalism is freely giving your money in exchange for something of value. Socialism is taking your money against your will and shoving something down your throat that you never asked for.

    “Appearances to the mind are of four kinds. Things either are what they appear to be; or they neither are, nor appear to be; or they are, and do not appear to be; or they are not, and yet appear to be. Rightly to aim in all these cases is the wise man's task.” Epictetus

    Democrats in congress are like having the Fox construct the hen house then installing the security system.

    If the above is true then we aren't a completely capitalist country. Prime example is: We pay our elected officials & they give us NOTHING OF VALUE.
