So you want to know the real DNA of the
United States? It’s in the preamble of the Constitution and its socialist. Check
it out and leave your comments and don’t forget to subscribe to our channel.
So bu,t that’s what you called about? You called about the Constitution and socialism? [CALLER] Yes I did. [THOM] Go for it Mike. [MIKE] Okay I when I’m going to state is, I’m gonna, I’m gonna show that socialism as part of
our governments DNA, And first of all, but first by doing that let’s define
socialism in the context of this discussion that’s been going on for the
past couple weeks. Essentially, socialism is a program
created and supported by the people to benefit the people. Right?
[THOM] I would go
with that definition, but we also need to define
capitalism. I caught a little bit of Morning Joe this morning and they were
interviewing Governor Hickenlooper know of Colorado. Who has come out and
said he’s going to run for our political office for president. And he
he started a brewery in Denver and then, leveraged that to Mayor
and then to governor. And so he’s he’s a wealthy guy as self quote
self-made businessman.And Donny Deutsch and Joe, what’s his name,
Morning Joe were all over this thing, about how he’s a capitalist.
This guy’s a capitalist! And and they tried to get him to say that he was a
capitalist. He wouldn’t say it. He was saying, basically, he was engaged in free
enterprise. I don’t think most people even understand the definition of the
word capitalist. Hickenlooper was not a capitalist. He was engaged in free
enterprise, he was an entrepreneur. But a capitalist as a person lives off capital.
It’s a person lives off their investments and that’s not Hickenlooper.
I mean. maybe it is now. in his retirement. But that’s not how, he was a
businessman. And, so okay the word capitalist is just as misunderstood
as the word socialist. Forgive the aside Mike, but it just was making me crazy
when you know Donny Deutsch and Joe were sitting there going, well
you know, I don’t know why you won’t even say he’s the capitalist. Well maybe he’s
not a capitalist. Maybe he doesn’t live off his capital. Anyhow, back to you Mike.
[MIKE] Okay well you went off for a different time, because I thought that just a
rebuttal through to the definition of socialism, or what socialism is,
is that they would say but it’s still a government-run program. Which brings me
to my point, okay? Our government was created and is
supported by we the people. And it was done so, to benefit the people it serves.
I mean it was, it’s our Constitution is essentially a socialist
document. Everything was created to serve the people. The people serve the
government and that government serves the people.
[THOM] The people actually control
the government and the government serves the people yes and I completely agree
with you. That is a socialist concept. [MIKE] Yes and that that’s what the if you’re debating with a conservative that’s what they need to
know. Because if you’re gonna ask them who does the government serve?
What other answer can they get? [THOM] Yeah. Tragically I’d
say right now that the government is serving fat cats and
corporations more than anybody else. But we can lay that at the feet of our of
our Supreme Court and that has very little to do with the founders original intent.
[MIKE] Right yeah, but that’s what I’m saying though. The
socialism is part of our DNA in our Constitution, so it’s not something that
we should be we should run away from [THOM] Amen, amen.
Well said Mike thanks a lot for the call.
