... says Obama.
Until now, I've considered Obama's mistakes a combination of arrogance and incompetence. Now, I must add academic ivory tower blindness to the two; or sheer malevolence.
No difference between a system that has slaughtered 180 million in its name. Not to mention a miserable life, with shortages of everything a rule for 99 percent of the population. The ruling apparat and politburo excepted, of course. That's communism's gift to the world.
Or, capitalism, an engine that drives the most abundant lifestyle for the largest number, the world has known.
T"he Independent Sentinel reported:
Barack Obama told an audience of Argentinian youth that the differences between socialism and capitalism make interesting conversation but just pick whatever works. The ideological-left US president suddenly doesn’t have an affinity for ideology.
He said in the past there was a sharp division between communists, socialists and capitalists but that is merely an intellectual argument and it’s not so today.
The Marxist in the White House is erasing the lines between two dangerous ideologies and the one that made the US great, just as he erased our borders. This is a man who would be at home in communist China.
“So often in the past there has been a division between left and right, between capitalists and communists or socialists, and especially in the Americas, that’s been a big debate,” Obama said at the Buenos Aires town hall.
“Those are interesting intellectual arguments, but I think for your generation, you should be practical and just choose from what works. You don’t have to worry about whether it really fits into socialist theory or capitalist theory. You should just decide what works.”
For Obama, high taxation, wild spending, government agency domination over the people and heavy regulations work which tells you what he is."
For a good explanation of capitalism
