The difference between Capitalism and Socialism
Capitalism is about fulfilling the needs in the market place based on what consumers want. Socialism is about the government telling you what you need and then making sure that you have to get it from them. United Parcel Service, Federal Express and Airborne deliver packages all over the world and do so making a profit at it. The Postal Services lose billions of dollars a year and is constantly raising their prices. If I needed a business website created, I would hire the best web company to design and build it. When the story came out that the technology to build the Obamacare website is at least 10 years old, I just shook my head. No private company would have ever done something like that, because competition is what brings out the best in companies that are competing with other companies for consumers.The other day, my LG Android phone was downloading all the updates, and I just watched it do it's thing for awhile in astonishment. I look at the Obamacare website as a clear reminder of why the private sector is good at what it does and the public sector should stay out of it.
