We here at Louder With Crowder have made it more than apparent we think the many shades of communism are a pile of garbage left out in the hot sun. You probably saying to yourself, “yeah, but that’s just like your opinion, man.” Except we have a pile of evidence higher than a meth-head at a monster truck rally to prove it.
Case in point: Cuba is having trouble providing its fine citizens with bread and bread accessories. See for yourself:

I can hear the lefties now. “This means nothing. Sure, it looks like another failure of socialism, but that’s because nobody’s ever tried real socialism before. Besides, have you heard about Cuba’s literacy rate?”
You’d think people in the bread lines would eventually say to themselves “you know, I’m not so sure this system is working out for us.” Especially when you compare Cuba to ‘Murica, where our ever-expanding waistlines would probably appreciate a lack of enriched grains.
In the glorious system of capitalism, we have an abundance of goods and services. Our shelves are full with whole wheat, rye, pumpernickel. You name it, we’ve got it. Such is the majesty of the invisible hand. Perpetually ensuring we live in a prosperous land with twenty options of underarm deodorant.
Lefties over here in the U-S-of-A would like very much to mimic the policies of places like Cuba. They’re certain if we give it just one more shot, it’ll all work out and we’ll live in a harmonious utopia formal of eternity. In the real world, however, we end up miserable and downtrodden, clubbing our neighbor with a baseball bat to score the last loaf of Wonder Bread.
Socialism has sucked, does suck, and always will suck. The end.
