Socialists are wimps.  They don’t have the guts to personally take money and property from other people. That is why they have the government do it for them.
 That's why they support price controls, taxation, laws against self-defense, the socialist slave system, etc., Socialists don't think ahead, and don't make arrangements for their wives, children or grandchildren (they steal from their children and grandchildren and everyone else’s) as they whine for government to steal money from other people to give to them.  Socialism is simply a government system of theft and violence by cowardly criminals, and that is why it causes shortages, poverty, misery, starvation, atrocities and mass slaughter. Socialists are cowards who always get the government to do their dirty work for them --to steal goods and services from other people.  Socialists don't have the balls to steal goods and services on their own because they know what would happen: the individual right of self-defense and the 2nd amendment from free people who are preserving their own lives and the lives of their own wives, children and grandchildren, by protecting their own goods/property/assets.  That's why cowards are socialists.  So the next time you hear a socialist advocating yet another government tax or program, say to him/her, “why don’t you have the guts to come over here and try to take the money out of my pocket yourself ? Are you so much of a coward that you have to get the government to steal for you?”  
    A search for the phrase “socialists are wimps” on the web and newsgroups reveals that is one of only three locations to express the sentiment, and is the only site to express the sentiment in the manner above.
    There is one other website that came close with the phrase “democratic socialists are cowards.”  The sentiment also applies to republican socialists who are outspending the socialist Clinton by more than double.

To the Editor:

The headline of your report on Mayor Lawrence Morrissey of Rockford, IL, spending time in Washington begging pooh-bahs there for money speaks volumes: "Wish List in Hand, Mayor Travels to Washington and Finds He’s Not Alone" (January 24).

Mayor Morrissey's use of his time seeking government handouts is an ideal, if unintentional, tribute to a great son of Rockford, the economist Gordon Tullock.  Forty-two years ago, in one of the most important papers published in economics during the 20th century, Tullock identified the phenomenon of "rent-seeking."*  Rent-seekers generate huge amounts of waste by using resources to plead for handouts.  It's not so much the actual transfers from taxpayers to successful supplicants that are wasteful, Tullock showed, but the fact that the prospects of receiving these transfers prompt producers to form themselves into special-interest groups.  These interest groups divert the time and resources that they, as producers, would have spent doing socially productive things - such as administering cities efficiently - into lobbying for government favors.  Successful rent-seekers benefit, but the diversion of resources from productive uses into pleading and pandering at the feet of politicians makes society poorer.

SOCIALISTS, SOCIALIST stalin mao hitler socialists genocide holocaust wholecaust trio of the worst atrocities

   A person wrote to me to argue that the National Socialist German Workers' Party was not socialist.
The following is my response:
     Your effort to defend and rehabilitate the National Socialist German Workers' Party by asserting that they are not socialist is bizarre.  Granted, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics murdered more people (~60 million deaths, 1917-'87) and the People's Republic of China murdered more people (~50 million, 1949-'87) than did the  the National Socialist German Workers' Party (~20 million, 1933-'45), however that does not make the latter "not socialist" simply because of the lesser numbers killed, nor does it exclude the latter from the trio of socialist atrocities involved in the socialist Wholecaust (of which the Holocaust was a part) at
