I'll go along with that philosophy:
"Never in a million years will we let that happen"

Americans own 100 times as many firearms as the U.S. military and 400 times as many as law enforcement.

An armed citizenry is the people's best defense against government tyranny and oppression.

Americans are neither stupid nor weak enough to allow the government to confiscate their firearms.

Therefore, Americans are in no danger of tyranny and oppression from a socialist government.

Well then I guess that must mean an armed citizenry isn't a very good defense and Americans are weak and helpless against tyranny.

Oppression happens in other ways. Take inflation for instance.

The current spike in inflation is due to rising prices from monopoly and lack of competition. Government breaking up or nationalizing the monopolies would help reduce inflation. The ultimate goal of a socialist economy is to abolish the wage and price system altogether.

Inflation means rising prices throughout the economy. When there is a lot of competition between businesses in the economy, prices are kept low as businesses try to steal customers away from each other by having the lowest price.

But when there are very few companies in a certain business they don’t have to compete as much and can even raise prices. That's mostly why we are seeing high prices lately.

Supply problems and covid have something to do with it but it is mainly noncompeting businesses that dominate the market raising prices. Especially oil because almost every other product depends on oil in some way.

The best thing to do to fight inflation would be for the government to take over one or more oil companies. That is what Germany did last week with a gas company called Gazprom.

Hold onto your britches there grasshopper. The fat lady hasn't sung yet.

Oh, is the cavalry coming to save the day? What were they waiting for?

A horde of QAnon LARPers rioting on the Capitol doesn't inspire much hope.

I doubt that I have the oxygen, either, but I will. Commies will notoriously complain that inflation is caused by evil capitalistic corporations, and that socialism/communism will save the economy by having the government "fix it".
When in reality, our government has caused inflation by being bad stewards of the money that they have taken in from taxpayers (remember, the govt does nothing but TAKE money), and they overprint what they do not have. This overprinting of money has turned our currency into a fiat currency.
Now a socialist/communist would cry for the government to federalize everything, to take it all over and "fix" it, and hand out to everyone their "fair share".
I would not want to live in a country like that. Rhian, it sounds like you might, so I'd recommend Venezuela for you.

If you think the government caused inflation by printing an oversupply of money into the economy, then don't you think the government should cure inflation by taking the extra money out of the economy? It could do that by raising taxes.

If you don't like inflation I'd recommend voting for the party that wants to raise taxes.

In a healthy economy, inflation is a sign of expansion of the economy and robust growth. In that situation the way you curb it is by slowing down the money expansion with increased interest rates.

This economy has been mortally wounded by the idiotic policies of the Biden administration. Normal remedies won't work.

It means that unlike the left, we don't immediately turn to violence and start burning down cities when we aren't happy with things. I guess you wouldn't understand that though... We let other remedies run their course first. We're fighting in the courts and elections instead of mindlessly burning down cities.

Some riot. Compared to the BLM and Antifa riots it was a very peaceful protest. The only people killed were protesters, and the ringleaders like Ray Epps were agent provocateurs.

That's pretty funny, Rhian. Raise taxes. As if people are not paying enough in food and fuel costs because of the overprinting of money. The govt can't take it back.
So...I noticed our Walmart in the bigger town was pretty quiet yesterday. Prices were sky high. So are people buying less because they cannot afford it because of inflationary prices, because of overprinting of money? Yep, I'd say so. Walmart is not going to need all those extra employees standing around that I saw, without as many customers. Layoffs will happen soon. People not working means people not paying taxes.
But, we can argue all day about why our economy is trashed. The point of this forum is, is to learn how to prepare yourself when the whole of the economy goes under. That is up to the individual.

Tyranny means absolute rule unrestrained by law.

If it can be remedied with courts and elections it isn't tyranny.

Inflation reduces the purchasing power of money. A dollar no longer purchases as much stuff as it used to because there is too much money going around.

If the government raises taxes, the extra money gets taken out of the economy.

Those paying the taxes may have less money but now the money they do have has more purchasing power.
It's better to have a little money with a lot of purchasing power than to have a lot of money with less purchasing power.
