    I disagree! If any government is taxing properly there should be overages for emergencies, feeding the poor, housing the homeless and also investing money in a vehicle for a good rate of return. Once the investments begin to pay for the needed services then taxes can be reduced.

    Surely you took some courses in economics and government, somewhere during your vast experiences in life.
    The government is the people. It's the fail-safe they depend on.

    You are probably right that some planning for emergencies should be in the architecture of a gummint.

    Yes, the Government is the people, and the people are the Government. At least, until the People forget that fact.

    Re: Socialist Countries Are Bankrupt. Don't Fall For The Lie:

    I find it incredibly hypocritical how someone who usually so vehemently claims to be a Christian can also claim to be so vehemently in favour of a Capitalist system. "Blessed are the Poor" is a phrase that jumps to mind. Capitalism is a system designed for the minority rich to profit from the suffering majority. Socialism even gets its name from what works best for Society. The UKs Jewel in the Crown is the NHS - created FOR the People, BY the people, by a Socialist Government. The Capitalistic Tory Government are unashamedly trying to sell it off & privatise it. The Socialist ideal is to provide a University education for all, which has long term benefits for ALL society. The Capitalist society wants to discourage the poorer people from getting to University by imposing massive debts that they will be paying off for the rest of their lives, meaning that only the wealthiest are those who really stand any chance of getting a chance of any decent education. The Socialist Government set up the Welfare State, where the elderly could be assured of the State caring for them in their old age. The Capitalist Tory Government makes them sell their homes in order to fund what they have already paid for their entire lives in the way of taxes. The Socialist ideal is to have equality for all - Equal pay, Equal rights, etc., as opposed to discrimination based on Gender, Race, Religion, Age, Disabilities, etc. The Capitalist Government seeks to have the worker have no rights whatsoever, so that they can be treated as the cheapest possible commodity, to be discarded & replaced at a whim.
    Under a Socialist Government we had the lowest rates of Poverty, the lowest rates of Homelessness, the best levels of NHS treatment. Now we have record levels of Poverty & Homelessness (including families with children), ambulances queueing at A&E because of waiting times. Children bedded on chairs because of no beds. Record usage of Food Banks.
    Oh, yes - Capitalism really works. How anyone who claims to be a Christian AND support Capitalism is sickening. If Jesus ever had existed, his teachings were always blatantly Socialist - tend for the sick, give to the poor, love thy neighbour, do unto others, etc.
    YOU ARE A HYPOCRITE !!!

    LoL China is nothing without the United States. They need us as a trading partner and if they lost the US their economy would free fall. There is a massive trade imbalance in China's favor with the US that Trump is going to fix. They are beginning to adopt Capitalistic policies into their economic system, which is resulting in wealth. Under their Socialism, they have been extremely poor for 100 years.

    What a pity they haven't been a socialist country for a hundred years. Come to that it was only in 1971 that the US opened diplimatic relations with china and the late 1970's that the US decided the self inposed ban on trade with china was actually causing them harm since china is one of the biggest world markets that they had no access to and the eu was wiping tne floor with them in terms of trade volume. China surpassed the US as the latrgest trading nation in the world in 2013.

    You do know that 100 years ago america wasn't a democracy as we would know it either?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Histor...ublic_of_China

    Today, China's main export markets, in order of importance, are the European Union (20.4%), United States (17.7%), Hong Kong (13.4%), and Japan (8.1%). China's main import markets, in order of importance, are Japan (13.3%), European Union (11.7%), South Korea (10.9%), Taiwan (9.1%), and the United States (7.2%).
    I suggest you check the figures against those supplied by your own government if you remain in any doubt.
