Because they have nothing between the ears. In order for us to become even Socialist would require the expenditure of trillions of dollars to develop the infrastructure. You'll hear people say we are socialist already......they are equally stupid and have never even researched the subject with any level of depth. Almost everything the United States does is based on Private Industry. From our Health Insurance Industry which makes a mere $31 Billion a year in profit (only a 3.8% margin....about the cost of capital) insuring between 91 and 92 of the population of the United States in one form or another. We have liberals foaming at the mouth pointing to the tiny 8% underinsured and attempting to guilt the rest of us into a massively inefficient, much more expensive, and bureaucratic system that everyone would hate. Why not just target and address the underinsured vs scraping our existing system? Got to ask the Liberals that one, I can't explain it. Anyways back to Socialism and Communism, our banking system and Treasury Dept are largely privately run with highly efficient private IT systems the government could never hope to duplicate. Our privately run freight railroad system is the most efficient in the world and the envy of the world. Our airline and Interstate Highway system a close second. All that would be scrapped or nationalized under socialism or communism. Thats just transportation and health care. I could go on and on into other areas but I think two subject areas are enough to prove the point that even consideration of socialism and communism are non starters.
