    Its got to be the greatest irony in human history that China switched to capitalism, we switched to Obama communism, and China is surging while we are dying.

    Most economies on this planet are a mixture of socialism and capitalism. True China has considerably more socialism than the US, but it will probably adopt more capitalism with time.

    We haven't "switched to communism." That's overstating it. If obama gets reelected though...

    China hasn't switched to capitalism any more than we've switched to socialism. Both, however, are embracing corporatism. Sadly, that is the predominant trend in most government. Could get very ugly this century.

    There's no profit in this country investing in the worker.
    They're all at home collecting Obama dollars.

    And like most of the really insidious developments in history, most of us don't even see it happening.
