Moody Adams The presidential election was very simply a contest between socialism and capitalism. Surprisingly, capitalism won. The major deciding factor was people realized that socialism has not worked when their healthcare costs doubled and the national debt soared to over 20 trillion dollars.
Evidence for this is the millions of high school students who were expecting the socialist to win and give them free college education.
Those more informed know that socialism has failed in every attempt around the world. Knowledgeable Christians know that Jesus taught the opposite of socialism. In Matthew 25:14-24 Jesus taught rewarding the productive and taking from the unproductive. The less fortunate are to be cared for by individual charity not by the government.
Those knowledgeable in history know socialists have been responsible for the death of more people than any person or government in history. Between 1917 and 1987, Vladimir Lenin, Josef Stalin and their successors murdered and were otherwise responsible for the deaths of 62 million of their own people. Between 1949 and 1987, China's socialists, led by Mao Zedong and his successors, murdered and were otherwise responsible for the deaths of 76 million Chinese. (The most authoritative tally of history's most murderous regimes is documented on University of Hawaii Professor Rudolph J. Rummel's website here, and in his book "Death by Government.")
