    In trying to see parallels to the Obama administrations apparent goals I came across this link in Google.

    ON STATE CAPITALISM

    State Capitalism.
    Sure sounds familiar................

    From the selected works of Mao Tse-Tung concerning State Capitalism

    I know most of the bloggers here are already aware of this, but I guess it doesn't hurt to re-introduce it from time to time. Of course some naysayers will pop out of the closet as usual, screaming this and that. Oh well.........

    Your OP doesn't take a position on "State Capitalism"?

    On its face it doesn't look too bad. The other form means that the top 1% of incomes who own 90% of everything get 100% of profits instead of 25%. Who should manage an economy the government or capitalists?

    "under control of the peoples government"
    "exists not to make profit for the capitalists"
    "a share of the profits produced by the workers goes to the capitalists"

    How can you read these statements and imply it remotely relates to our current economic system? Just because Glenn Beck says it is so, doesn't make it so.
    You don't think capitalists make most of the profits in this country? 90% of the wealth is controled by 10% of the people. Does that look like most of the profit is going to the workers? Workers are working more hours and getting a lower standard of living. Meanwhile the richest 10% are claiming a greater percentage of available wealth.

    Your laments that we are turning into a socialist country are laughable

    And what exactly is wrong with that scenario? Too much money going to the workers?

    Rightwinger,
    MY Laments, are you serious or do you just like disagreeing with the people who you obviously do not like or do not agree with everything YOU say or do?

    Wake up Rightwinger and smell the roses, Implying? :lol::lol: You are laughable. the USA is A LOT socialist already, and NO, I am not going to post the multitudes of "Socialist" type programs for you, go look them up for your self and stop with your ASSumptions.

    Why is it that if some in 'USMB' who see anyone that remotely has a different opinion, view or just posting something that seems to be an interesting topic or observation, their first reaction is too start throwing spears and rocks?
    I for one am a capitalist but also want those 'ole socialist' programs for those who are truly in need of help and do not abuse the system, Medicare,welfare,healthcare etc, so I guess that makes me a 'combo' doesn't it. As a U.S.Naval Air Vet, who worked his arse off since 16 years old I don't need some know-it-all lecturing me on some thread that I and others MIGHT have been interested in reading.
    I see how some in here attempt to 'bully' others in these threads, and I for one don't give a flying monkey if you like me,my threads, replies, comments or not. I am here, and I am sure many others also are here to learn from others who enjoy discussing a topic, relating relevant URL's and articles that may assist us to better understand an issue.
    I, as many in here are, post in good faith, not here to post and receive 'smart ass' answers, jabs and pokes from those that seemingly get pleasure out of doing so.
    That's my 2¢ worth on that.......go ahead, say it, it isn't even worth 2¢

    BTW, this country has been a mix of capitalism and socialism for a long time now.

    Well this White House often openly boasts about how they are all loyal students of Chairman Mao's strategies and teachings so i would have to say yes it does sound familiar. The Marxist "Community Organizer" Loons really are running our nation. Yikes!

    Well, I don't know who is PUTTING THIS CRAP in to your head about MAO, but just the day before yesterday in Florida an incident occurred while driving with my parents to the furniture store.

    A guy next to us, motioned for us to roll down our window while in traffic at a stop light....he started ranting and raving about OBAMA and MAO, a bunch of illogical qand DERANGED CRAP about obama....I honestly was scared for my LIFE with this in his forties, man....expecially since Florida allows citizens to carry guns and we could not see if he had one in his front seat....

    If it were not for my father rushing away from him and having me put 911 on my speed dial as this CRAZY RIGHT WINGER was CHASING US.....we finally lost him.

    I was disappointed that I was unable to get his license tag to report him to the FBI and so help me goodness this man was certifiable AND WOULD KILL OUR PRESIDENT....

    So, if it is Glen Beck or Rush Limbaugh or whoever fueling this kind of bullcrap....they should be aware that there are some certifiable nutters out there that will take their crap to heart and feel JUSTIFIED as this man felt he was, to have the president assasinated as this guy mentioned should happen to him.

    I am telling the truth on this, with God as my witness.... (and my parents too)

    Care

    Coward

    Just as I thought. You have no examples of where the industry is in complete control of the government, where workers make more money that the capitalists or where the wealthy are not monopolizing an overwhelming portion of national wealth

    Glenn Beck would be proud of you

    Sorry the only candidate I know that espouses the theories of Mao is Ron Paul

    But thankfuly, 99% of Americans recognize him for the dingbat that he is
