    Do not worry--an Eisenhower-type Republican will come along and everything will become normal in all sectors of the government--except the tax rate!!

    I can't wait to see what the Obamatrons will say about this.

    Probably nothing.

    Actually--Spending is part of the Democratic solution--the only problem is where to spend and how much.

    The cartoon added in the notion that this is the pathway to communisim when in fact Tsarist Russia failed because of a lack of government focusing on the social sectors of the nation.

    In other words, the Russian government failed the Russian people, the russian people over-reacted and empowered communists, the communists showed the Russian people that Tsarists were not as bad as they thought! Yes there are bad dictatorships(Tsars) and worst ones(Soviets!)

    Of course the soviets were going to attack capitalists because capitalists are on the other side of the spectrum from them. Kind of like how Capitalists attack communists, except communists that help them make money(See Communists China, Communist Vietnam, Soon--Communist Cuba!!)


    But it was not the CAPITALIST that failed the Russian people But their non-responsive government. In America, it was Laissez-Faire Markets(unregulated capitalism) that brought about the Great depression yet a responsive government that kept us from following the Russians.

    In other words, yomay not like what is going on, but if we continue in the conservative direction, we will empower left-wing fascists.

    I believe the implication was the administration was emulating Stalin's rhetoric.

    So republicans are returning to their McCarthyist roots. Your cartoon would do Joe McCarthy, Michael Savage, and PubicInfinitum (or whatever the f his screen name is) proud.

    Nice detail in your caroon. Karl Marx. Stalin. So your contention is that Franklin Roosevelt was a commie pinko, a marxist, and a stalinist?

    This is just sad. Its not only beyond inflammatory, but history proved the douchebag who drew this cartoon to be laughably wrong. the economy didn't collapse. It got better after 1933, and generally stayed on trend getting better. That's why FDR blew out republican opposition by landslide elections four times in a row.
