With trillions of dollars holed up in offshore accounts doing nothing other than making the rich richer, I'm sure a lot of problems can be solved before we even get close to running out of money.

Also if you take money from the rich and give it to the poor, the poor spend it on stuff they've been needing, and that money just ends right back in the hands of the rich anyways.

No way bro the only way the economy grows is by letting "job creators" do whatever they want with their money even if it means breaking federal laws or undermining our freedoms.

Where as with capitalism on the other hand... wait, hold on... can the people down the back hear me over the cacophonous roar of 19.5 trillion dollars of debt straining against the seams of the country...? good, good... with capitalism on the other hand, you see...

That's crony capitalism, also known as corruption. That's entirely different to proper capitalism.

Proper capitalism will literally never exist, certainly not in North America.

There will never be a free market. SOMEONE will always have an unfair advantage because humans are easily corruptible. As long as there is some way to get ahead of others people will do it even if it means stepping over the corpses of their own countrymen.

And the Socialists just don't get that point... the money tree just doesn't exist.

Sure it does, they contribute to it just like rich people do. THAT'S the magic fact people like to ignore about socialism. You're not just spending someone elses money, you're not just spending rich peoples' money, you're spending taxes, which EVERYONE pays. Fuck you for trying to tell me what I can and can't do with the tax dollars I'm forced to pay. I'd certainly rather my money be going to things like Healthcare for my fellow citizens than being poured into some fat politicians pockets or a defense contractors bank account.
