    The ChiComs recently pilloried Democrats older brothers in economic faith, the European socialists for being lazy, indolent, unproductive slugs; and they were right.

    In an article on Cargill, even the Vietnamese are turning away from the American Democrat economic model with phenomenal results!

    "Cargill was one of the first U.S. multinationals to return to Vietnam when President Bill Clinton normalized relations with the government in Hanoi in 1995. Today it is the country's largest domestic producer of livestock feed and a central player in Vietnam's fast-moving shift from a state-controlled agricultural economy to one where small farmers are encouraged to work private plots for private gain. The effect of that shift has been transformative. Not long ago, Vietnam was importing a million tons of rice a year. Last year it became the world's second leading rice exporter. "Same people, same land," Vietnam's director of crop production, Dr. Nguyen Tri Ngoc, told me in his Hanoi office, speaking through a translator. "Before, farmers were not really farmers. They were workers in the fields, and they worked under the supervision of the government." And the difference now? "Free markets!" he says in English."

    American Democrats are to the Left of Chinese and Vietnamese Communists, then you wonder why they keep saying there is no such thing as a "Far Left"? It's because you can't get any further Left than an American Democrat. Not even Communists believe in the Democrat economic model any more

    It sure looks that way. I'll never understand why so many Americans want to be Big Government slaves. Is it all about the possible Freebies? Or is it a result of many years of Big Government media propaganda? It seems like so many Americans are raised on Big Government propaganda. They don't seem to know any better. I guess it starts in early childhood for them. I'm actually amazed there are any real Conservatives left. They have been so thoroughly ostracized by Big Mainstream Media. Man,just slow down America. Why such a rush to absolute Big Government domination?

    "Later in Hanoi, I tell Ngoc all about my visit to Baria-Vungtau province. When does a farmer like Thanh, I ask him, become too much of a capitalist for the Socialist Republic of Vietnam? Ngoc beams. "No limit!" he says. Again in English."

    If only American Democrats had the same embrace of free markets and their attendant prosperity like the Vietnamese Communists!

    If only!

    The Chinese today are no more Communists, than Republicans are believers in a republic.

    And American Democrats are solidly to the left of the ChiComs.

    ...If only Republicans would get on board with the Dems that recommended repealing farm subsidies we could be more like Vietnam.

    But Republicans are left of the commies.

    I've never met a Democrat who was in favor of repealing farm subsidies. You would be the first.
