Ronald Reagan, the Democratic presidential candidate in 1980, had a lot to say about socialism. One of his most memorable lines was, “You’ve got to be free, but you’ve got to be free to fail.
Reagan was a politician who was in favor of capitalism, but he also believed that socialism would lead to a higher standard of living for the working class. He was also a very outspoken proponent of free enterprise, free markets, government intervention in the market, and the government having a hand in creating jobs. So when he said, “Youve got to be free, but youve got to be free to fail,” he was speaking from the socialist perspective.
Socialism leads to lower living standards for workers that are the direct result of government intervention. The government taking over and running businesses is bad for the economy because it means the government can force businesses to cut costs. This leads to more jobs being cut and less money getting into the hands of working people. The government also has the power to force business owners to pay taxes, which leads to more taxes to be paid and less money going into employees’ pockets.
Not sure how that ends up being the case for some people, but it does seem to have happened in a lot of ways.
In the future, government should no longer be setting the prices of everything, even if it means it has to force businesses to shut down. Businesses should also not be forced to keep their employees on the payroll. They should instead be paying them a certain number of hours a week. This would give working people a chance to get their jobs back and make more money.
This sounds bad, but in the future, government would be setting the prices for everyone. This would include the prices of food, water, medicine, and transportation. It was a very controversial thought that was put forth by the socialist Ronald Reagan in his 1960 Presidential address. He said that he wanted to ensure that all people would be able to afford good things. He continued to stress that, “the American people should have a choice, not only in food, but in all of our other necessities.
