Drinking Your Way Through the Socialist World | Guests: Benjamin Powell and Robert Lawson | Ep 19



Matt Kibbe is joined by Dr. Robert Lawson and Dr. Benjamin Powell, two thirsty economists who have learned firsthand about surviving socialism in Cuba, starving socialism in Venezuela, and the collectivist black hole of North Korea. They also correct the record on Sen. Bernie Sanders’ darling Nordic countries, which turn out to be almost as capitalist as the United States.

Highways/Roads – Those roads and highways you drive on every single day are completely taxpayer funded democratic socialism. Your tax dollars are used to maintain, expand, and preserve our highways and roads for every one's use.

Public Libraries – Yes. That place where you go to check out books from conservative authors telling you how horrible socialism is, is in fact socialism. Libraries are taxpayer funded. You pay a few bucks to get a library card and you can read books for free for the rest of your life.

Police – Ever had a situation where you had to call the police? Then you have used a taxpayer funded socialist program. Anyone can call the police whether they pay taxes or not.
