Forms of Government in terms of COWS!!!

I found the following "analogy" at: http://leaderofmars.tripod.com/political.html

I thought it did a pretty good job of explaining the different forms of government. It presents the different types of government in a straightforward manner. I also thought it is very entertaining. Enjoy!

SOCIALISM: You have two cows. You keep one and give the other to your
neighbor.
COMMUNISM: You have two cows. The government takes them both and provides you with the milk.
FASCISM: You have two cows. The government takes both of them and sells you the milk.
BUREAUCRACY: You have two cows. The government takes them both, shoots one, milks the other, pays you for the milk and then pours it down the drain!
CAPITALISM: You have two cows. You sell one and buy a bull.
CORPORATE: You have two cows. You sell one, force the other to produce the milk of four cows and then act surprised when it drops dead!
DEMOCRACY: You have two cows. The government taxes you to the point you must sell them both in order to support the man in a foreign country who has only one cow, which was a gift from your government!
