March 26, 2016 The Year of Our Lord
Two days ago. Only two days ago, the president of the United States of America tells his youthful audience in Argentina there has been a “a sharp division in the past between left and right, between capitalist (waving his hand to his right) and communists or socialists, and especially in the Americas, that’s been a big debate.”
In his own words…
He dismisses facts of history and facts of practical experience in the Americas of persons who have actually lived in a free society (capitalist), quasi-socialist societies and full-blown communist-socialist countries.
The very soil upon which he stood as he made the above speech saw a horrible period of tyrannical socialist government that made approximately 30,000 its political enemies disappear. A PBS film titled, OUR DISAPPEARED \ NUESTROS DESAPARECIDOS, documents that horrific failure of tyrannical totalitarian government, a blend of crony capitalism and socialism.
Our president prescribes some blend of capitalism and socialism? Is he ignorant of the history of Argentina where this was the model of government? A term for his prescription is “crony capitalism”. What is crony capitalism? Prager U produced the following educational video (5:03) that succinctly describes the basics – as it is practiced today in the United States of America.
Pope Francis was born and raised under full-blown crony capitalism and this is why he stated his opposition to capitalism. Yes, the Pope only knows crony capitalism. Left unchecked, crony capitalism inevitably ends in a totalitarian state. The United States of America is heading toward that end at an astonishing pace.
If what I say is true, where is the tyranny, you ask. I take you back to 2008 when Barack Obama called for a “civilian national security force” equal to our military force. Hear him state his goal in the following video (0:20).
Are we headed toward tyrannical, dictatorial government that is a blend of capitalism and socialism and communism? Think of the all-powerful, heavily-armed alphabet-soup federal agencies rising in strength day by day: DEA, EPA, IRS, DOE, BLM, DHS, TSA, etc., agencies that bypass constitutional due process on a daily basis. Is not the answer a resounding yes?
Free-market capitalism is a natural economic system of exchange of goods and services between independent agents.
Socialism shall forever remain an economic theory. Why? Because it has. Never. Been. Proven. It remains the goal of Utopian leftist theorists like Barack Hussein Obama, the community organizer.
In this 2016 election cycle, we shall either return to true free-market capitalism upon which we built the greatest, most prosperous nation in the history of the world, or we shall face a similar fate of those Latin American countries that succumbed to the siren’s seduction to choose “what works”? A free society only works 100% of the time it is tried.
