Entire Class Fails when Obama’s Socialism Experiment Fails

An economics professor at a local collegemade a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Obama’s socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.

The professor then said, “OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama’s plan”.. All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A…. (substituting grades for dollars – something closer to home and more readily understood by all).

After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little.

The second test average was a D! No one was happy. When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F.  As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.

To their great surprise, ALL FAILED and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed. Could not be any simpler than that. (Please pass this on) These are possibly the 5 best sentences you’ll ever read and all applicable to this experiment:

  1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.
  2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
  3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
  4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!.
  5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.

    So this entire story is completely made up (which should be obvious, even to a half wit) but it even says that one your “source”, yet you draw magical conclusions from it. Nice work.

    What’s the matter, Chris? Haven’t you liked the story? Or maybe weren’t you able to understand it?
    I will answer you what the author said:

    “For everyone that has joined into to this scenario, thanks for visiting and even reading it. Many of you are like-minded and have read through the story and know if this was enacted on a classroom this would be the outcome. Everyone would fail, no ifs, ands or buts.

    What I am reading now is liberals, progressives or those that dismiss the STORY because it’s a scenario and not real. They can’t cope with the real truth that you can’t move poor people into prosperity by legislation from Washington, DC. Government doesn’t have the authority to take from Citizen A and give to Citizen B to make things even.

    Just remember, it’s a progressive’s nature to shift the subject and ignore the facts before namecalling.

    This story is not TRUE but the idea is! The results are TRUE!

    Its a shame that more people aren’t waking up to this.

    Thanks again for sharing this and keep doing so to people that can think clearly and understand that SOCIALISM DOESN’T WORK.”
