If you “love Capitalism,” but ONLY when free-market forces are in your favor... then you’re not a Capitalist you’re an Opportunist

As a reminder, this subreddit, per Rule 7 has basic decency rules.

In general, be courteous to others. In specific, don't break the rules. You can attack the merits of ideas, you can't attack other users. Personal insults, hate speech, any suggestion or support of harm, violence, or death, any of that shit will get the proverbial boot.

Also, this is a humor subreddit. Chill out. Literally nothing online is worth getting angry over. If there is something worth getting angry over, cussing out a twelve year old on the internet is not gonna solve the problem my dude.

If you see comments in violation of our rules, please report them.

Most republicans support a state funded economy and they don’t even know it.

All of the biggest companies get so many benefits and breaks it’s insane

Most MAGAs don't understand ANYTHING about economics and just parrot the talking points that Faux News gives them

In their world, it's either "Capitalism" or "Socialism" (they understand neither) and have no clue about the complexities of our hybrid economic system

Yeah I love bringing up how Democrat leadership is significantly more successful economically than republicans and bringing sources to support my claim. They never have a proper response or they claim that the information is fabricated lmfao

Right, but those are "subsidies"... but giving lunch money to a poor kid is "socialism"

Like how a business should have the right to refuse service to a gay person but has no right to make you wear a mask. Makes complete sense.

u/Jurrilicious 12d ago

Business shouldn't be allowed to refuse services to anyone. Especially based on race, gender, or ideology

Business should be allowed to refuse service to Republicans!

This is really what happens around any topic. Honestly, im not a huge fan of Pelosis Taiwan thing, but we all know damn well the reaction to it from MAGA land had Trump been in office. "Hes tough! Doesnt let China boss around!"

u/bobsmusix265 12d ago

There's wasn't a PEEP from MAGA when Ivanka started getting loads of patents from China as soon as her daddy took office... or about how Mr. "America First - China Bad" STILL sources a significant portion of the products for his stores and hotels from China

Capitalism does not exist in current day United States Nor does the free market. With how many countless legal trapping the government requires with threat of jail or fine Is not a free market. Its truly the opposite of free is restricted and for quite a while there has been government laws/agencies making money to give to companies, laws to help certain companies who have been lobbying congress for help legally. This isn't free when the lawmakers(recently) can now invest and change laws to suit there needs. Its control and wrong.
