The main point of socialism is to keep people from being wealthy. The purpose of socialism is to "spread the wealth" and "redistribute" from those who are wealthy to those who are not. The problem is that it never works; it is one-sided. Those who are working and generating income are the only ones who have to share their income. Those who are not working are receivers and never have to share anything. Currently in America there are 40 percent of the adult citizens who do not pay any taxes. So who is sharing the wealth?
