and you are all doing a nice and effective job towards that end.
Somalia is what results when people give up and become dependent upon whatever government gives them. With more and more people depending upon government goods and services, more and more people are leaving the workforce, and more and more people decide that, it's just not worth it to try, and thus, we end up with a dead or dying country. Somalia is not the only country where the people have given up and live in desperation. We have other countries in our own hemisphere where the people are lost and government has killed the incentive for people to do better with their lives.
Cuba and Venezuela are not exactly Somalia, but, the only reason they continue doing relatively better, is because they still have ties to Europeans and Americans and the other countries around them. But, if Cuba and Venezuela had been geographically located in Africa, with the same type of idiotic governments, then Cuba and Venezuela would be more Somalias. Haiti is very close to being Somalia, and the only thing propping them up is the U.S. But, if we continue in the same path we're in with the liberal policies we've adopted for so long, then it shouldn't be much more than a couple of decades before we're no better off than Russia or some of the lesser European countries, and then, sometime after that, we would get close to being a Somalia.
So, the Somalia analogy fits in a lot closer to your ideology than to mine. No doubt that, if Somalia had a conservative government with little government intrusion and a decent constitution, that it would be a lot better off than most other countries in Africa and South America.
So, again, you're not using your head.
