There is a question that has been asked of Barry more times than I care to count, and asked even before he was first elected president.  It’s the one which asks, ‘Is Barry “Almighty” a Socialist?’  Barry certainly has been on the receiving end of more than a few accusations of being such, or even worse, a communist, since becoming president.  But his many devoted followers, both in government and out, have always called that a stretch.  And it’s from those within the state-controlled media that Barry has received, and continues to receive, some of his most ardent defense against such accusations.  But it’s because of Barry’s own words and actions that those accusations continue to this very day, as the end of his presidency finally nears.

And has been reported it was during a question-and-answer session during the Barry’s recent trip to Argentina that he told young people there not to worry about labels or what socio-economic system might work best.  And so it was to those gathered at a town hall style meeting in Buenos Ares that Barry said, “So often in the past there has been a division between left and right, between capitalists and communists or socialists, and especially in the Americas, that’s been a big debate.”  He said, “Those are interesting intellectual arguments, but I think for your generation, you should be practical, and just choose from what works.”  Now mind you, never once did he suggest that they check out how history has treated each philosophy.

But Barry would go on to say, “You don’t have to worry about whether it neatly fits into socialist theory or capitalist theory. You should just decide what works.”  Now I think we can all agree that that is a far cry from the pro-capitalist message pushed by most American politicians, both Republican and Democrat, who lived through the Cold War and the many attempts by communist regimes, specifically the Soviet Union, to spread their oppressive ideology throughout the world.  But knowing Barry as we do after having watched, and listened, to him over the course of his presidency, it really comes as no surprise.  It has always been quite obvious that Barry is no fan of the system that has made this country the most prosperous country on the planet.

You see, it’s in Barry’s world that young people, like those who were listening to him, are seen as being little more than clay, waiting to be molded by the politicians with the greatest power.  And in his world, socialists are having the greatest influence on them, especially when they can do this inside schools and away from parental influence, or by politicians who are master manipulators and invited to give speeches at such schools.  Mr. ‘No-label’ has been the king of labels as a campaigner and as a president, and he knows it.  But again, as we have seen so many times before, it is always whenever Barry is on foreign soil, it doesn’t matter where, that he always thinks he can make up anything as he goes along and get away with it.

So Barry say, “Just decide what works”?  I’d say that’s a rather overly-simplistic rationale for government intrusion, especially considering that he’s decided in advance, whether or not it actually “works”.  Which, by the way, is never the case. Now you know why Barry’s economy is an abject disaster throwing millions more into poverty, millions more off full time to part time jobs, and has doubled the national debt.  It’s all about ‘what works’. At least for a ‘community agitator’ intent on transforming America.  It’s so obvious what works and that Socialism doesn’t work. Free people engaged in the free enterprise system devoid of government control does work, and it’s without government interference that it works even better.

Socialism serves to impoverish the most people, it drags almost everyone down to the lowest common denominator. The connected rich do very, very well as they control the government.  Capitalism (as free market as you can get with government existing) pulls people out of poverty and allows most the chance to do quite well. That’s because what limits you is your own drive to become successful, not government intervention.  Social issues cannot be solved by government. That’s because government will ALWAYS stomp on the rights of the people in its attempt to affect social change.  Social issues tend to manipulated in such a way as to allow those in power to divide the populace, increasing the odds they can stay in power.

So rather than telling these young people to simply, “Decide what works,” I think it would have been far more responsible to tell them to look around, look to other countries to see which system has produced the kind of results that they wish for themselves.  To see which system it is that would provide them with the best opportunity to have the kind of life that they hope to have for themselves, and their families.  Suggest to them not to listen to the recommendations of others, like himself, but to check out how history has essentially evaluated each system and to then judge for themselves.  And that if they do that they will quickly come to understand how it is that Socialism has never worked anywhere.
