They would make their own escalator but it would not work as well as a capitalist escalator.

A conservative would have been to cheap to install the escalator in the first place because it violates the Puritan work ethic.

Yes, stairs are better exercise.
Even when I use an escalator I still walk up the steps to speed things up.

I would post a video of a Republican trying to start a lawnmower without gas, claiming it should be able to start through it's own initiative. :roll:

It would have been funnier if the first guy had got near the top of the escalator, then started walking down it and pushed people down if they tried to get past him.

<-- liberal. Likes to sprint up and down the escalator whether it's moving or not. It's a race, dammit!

That video could also be a parody of Americans in general. In other countries people are far less calm and orderly. People are more willing to do risky things rather than wait for "the authorities". In some places you'd have people on bicycles riding down the railings to get past people. I've been to Costa Rica and I notice during traffic jams the bicycles and motorcycles will go between two cars with mere inches on either side. Try to do that in the US and you might get shot by an enraged motorist.

All those people had to do was walk up to the next floor using the stopped escalator as a stairway.

Interesting, I've been told something similar about the situation in other countries involving cars and pedestrians crossing the street. I was told that in many other countries, there is no waiting on each other either way. People just GO.
