Watched a Dictator in the Making TonightHas Socialism or Communism ever worked? I have not seen another country rise to the top like America has with it's Capitalistic Republic. It seems like once America shifted to more Progressive policies (Bush included) it has done nothing but failed.
It's what happens when Law protects people's right to work their asses off to get ahead, and not have the fruits of that extraordinary labor CONFISCATED by others. Very unique in history. That's why Michelle says that "we have to *change* our history..."
. Change history. What the gal means is that we have to *change* the idea that our history is a GOOD thing. We did on the backs of stealing the Indians land (slave-holding, torturous, land conquerers themselves) and African slaves (same there). BS...we exploded AFTER we got that stuff behind us.
It's called incentive and motivation. Guarantee the (economic) freedom of individuals, and watch them get with it. Exponential creativity.
This bunch has a chip on their should. Called Envy. The Good Lord says that "the poor shall be with you ALWAYS". Why...because some folks will always try to ride the wagon, instead of helping pull it. To them...it's the smart thing to do. That will NEVER go away; at least the idea. Though dictators can try to herd cats. Over here, cats, would be lions.
