Socialists depend on capitalists

When a capitalist borrows money he expects to pay the loan back with interest. When a socialist borrows money he wants the loan forgiven i. e. when borrowing a student loan.

A capitalist wants to start his own business and become financially successful through his own individual endeavor. A socialist wants to get a job in the capitalist's business, form a union, and go on strike for higher wages and benefits without regard to what he is actually worth to the business.

If it were not for capitalists where would socialists get jobs? If it were not for capitalists where would the government get the tax money for all the government socialist programs? Socialists should love capitalists.
