    True!

    This was posted on a message board:

    An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before,
    but had once failed an entire class.

    That class had insisted that Obama's socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.

    The professor then said, "OK,
    we will have an experiment in this class on Obama's plan".

    All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A.

    After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B.
    The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy.

    As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little.
    The second test average was a D!

    No one was happy.

    When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F.

    The scores never increased as bickering,
    blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.

    All failed, to their great surprise, and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great but when all the reward is taken away, no one will try or want to succeed.

    Could not be any simpler than that.

    Re: True!

    Great example. Some people just do not understand. I fear that it will not be long before the working class in this country strike and make a very loud point to the government. At this point it is not Republican or Democrat...it is simply TOO MUCH GOVERNMENT involvement. One day the small business owners/tax payers("people who study") will say enough and quit. Maybe then the non-working people("studied very little") will realize that what they currently have is a cake walk.

    I said it there and I'll say it again. Fiction doesn't hold the same water as actual evidence.

    But we all do love a great story.

    No, I did not see that post. I lifted it from a Yahoo financial MB. Obviously, it's making the rounds.
