This item was printed years ago in the Aida Parker Newsletter: COMMUNISM: You have two cows. The government takes both of them and gives you part of the milk. SOCIALISM: You have two cows. The government takes one and gives it to your neighbor. FASCISM: You have two cows. The government takes both cows and sells you the milk. NAZISM: You have two cows. The government takes both of them and shoots you. BUREAUCRACY: You have two cows. The government takes both of them, shoots one, milks the other, then pours the milk down the drain.

This wasn't in the original article, but I found this on Boredpanda.com: Capitalism: You have two cows.You sell one and buy a bull.Your herd multiplies and the economy grows. You sell them and retire on the income.

@1creekgirl that was good I think the best form of government is a mixture of socialism and capitalism.

@Mike197602 Mike, I'm afraid I don't agree with you on that one! Can you explain it for me?

I do remember reading this somewhere. I too was wondering where capitalism happened to be.

I found another version that included capitalism. I quoted it in a reply to @Mike197602.

Funny yet disturbingly grim reality. Under socialism, they say to spread the wealth to neighbor but I think they keep. Bureaucracy reigns supreme.

Capitalism isn't perfect, but I think it's the best form of government for the majority of people.

The POINT is that no form of HUMAN government is successful for one simple reason. Jeremiah 10:23 explains it well. It says: "I well know, O Jehovah, that to earthling man his way does not belong. It does not belong to man who is walking even to direct his step." God didn't give humans the ABILITY to direct even his own step, let alone direct the steps of others as a political leader. Man was to ALWAYS depend on God for direction, but that didn't happen. What is the answer? God's Kingdom in the hands of Christ Jesus. I'm sure most of us have prayed for God's Kingdom to come and HIS will to be done on earth. (Lord's Prayer) God's Kingdom is the ONLY hope for mankind. When Jesus turns his attention to the earth (and the signs we see indicate that that will happen in the near future,) only then will humans have the RIGHT government ruling over them. A government that will bring PEACE to the earth and many other blessings. Revelation 21:3,4 God's Kingdom will SOLVE all of mankind's problems.

Capitalism isn't on the list. But I think we are mixed between the Capitalism and the Socialism right now.
