There’s something about this story that I absolutely love. It’s the 1st Amendment and the 2nd Amendment coming together in a way that’s pretty rare. An Amish man (who doesn’t believe in having his photo taken) wants to own a firearm in the state of Pennsylvania. But Pennsylvania, like pretty much any state, requires a photo ID in order to obtain a firearms license. The Amish gentlemen is suing the state of Pennsylvania for violating his 1st and 2nd Amendment rights.
Socialism is like the amish. Everyone makes the same amount, and its split equally between everyone. The problem arises when lazy people don’t share their weight equally.
Democracy: 1 person = 1 vote. Everybody gets a vote, and you get paid on how hard you work.
Republic: People elect someone to represent them and hope that person does a good job of it (this is what we have, even though we lie to ourselves about it. Just look at gerrymandering laws and the Supreme Court’s Citizen’s United decision).
Communism: All the money goes to the ruler, and the ruler decides how much to dole out. For reference, see theocracy
