Bill Maher Tries Using Happiness to Argue in Favor of Socialism
When it comes to matters of free speech, you can usually count on Bill Maher to spit some truth. The rest of the time, he has a red stain on his upper lip from all the sips of lefty Kool-Aid. This is one of the latter times. Billiam is trying to use "happiness" to argue in favor of socialism.
See for yourself:
Here was Maher's last “new rule” of the night: “Republicans have to explain if socialism is such a one-way ticket to becoming the nightmare of Venezuela, then why do all the happiest countries in the world embrace it?” He then went on to talk about how the top ten happiest countries according to the UN are “socialist-friendly places.”
In contrast, he asserted that “socialism as an economic model replacing capitalism is bad but socialism as a supplement to capitalism, good.” As supposed evidence to back that up, he fretted that United States performed worse in the “world happiness rankings” compared to other countries and particularly ones that are socialist.
Isn't happiness kind of subjective? I know some people who aren't happy unless they're whipping around town in a Maserati. Others are perfectly happy puttering along in their Geo Metro. Also, I'm sure if you poll the peeps in North Korea, they'll tell you they've never been happier. Mainly from fear of being snuffed out by their commie overlords.
Lefties like Bill try hard to make socialism seem so innocent. "You know, it's not even full-on socialism
yet. We just want complete control over your healthcare, education, and bank account. No biggie."
Bill Maher can throw around happiness stats all he wants. They're not gonna stop socialism from being a bigger suckfest than Battlefield Earth. Sorry, them's the rules.
Speaking of socialism:
