Barack Obama … Forget The Difference Between Capitalism And Communism, “Just Decide What Works” (VIDEO)



Barack Obama says, what the hell, there is no difference between communism and capitalism … just decide what works. Unbelievable, this fool actually does not differentiate between the two. For those of you that actually votes for this clown, you should be ashamed of yourself. For those of you that did not think that Obama was a communist sympathizer … now you know better.


PRESIDENT OBAMA: I guess to make a broader point, so often in the past there’s been a sharp division between left and right, between capitalist and communist or socialist. And especially in the Americas, that’s been a big debate, right? Oh, you know, you’re a capitalist Yankee dog, and oh, you know, you’re some crazy communist that’s going to take away everybody’s property. And I mean, those are interesting intellectual arguments, but I think for your generation, you should be practical and just choose from what works. You don’t have to worry about whether it neatly fits into socialist theory or capitalist theory — you should just decide what works.

And I said this to President Castro in Cuba. I said, look, you’ve made great progress in educating young people. Every child in Cuba gets a basic education — that’s a huge improvement from where it was. Medical care — the life expectancy of Cubans is equivalent to the United States, despite it being a very poor country, because they have access to health care. That’s a huge achievement. They should be congratulated. But you drive around Havana and you say this economy is not working. It looks like it did in the 1950s. And so you have to be practical in asking yourself how can you achieve the goals of equality and inclusion, but also recognize that the market system produces a lot of wealth and goods and services. And it also gives individuals freedom because they have initiative.

And so you don’t have to be rigid in saying it’s either this or that, you can say — depending on the problem you’re trying to solve, depending on the social issues that you’re trying to address what works. And I think that what you’ll find is that the most successful societies, the most successful economies are ones that are rooted in a market-based system, but also recognize that a market does not work by itself. It has to have a social and moral and ethical and community basis, and there has to be inclusion. Otherwise it’s not stable.

And it’s up to you — whether you’re in business or in academia or the nonprofit sector, whatever you’re doing — to create new forms that are adapted to the new conditions that we live in today.

      At what period in time during the embargo did 26 Americans risk their lives and the lives of their loved ones by cramming into 30′boat desperately attempting an escape to Cuba. Logic dictates that communism does not work.

      Barack Obamas trip to Cuba was an outright betrayal to the plight of those living in under oppression.

      On Heels of Obama Visit, 9 Cubans Die Trying to Flee
      March 19, 2016

      MIAMI (AP) — Nine Cuban migrants died at sea and 18 others were rescued by a cruise ship after their 30-foot boat was found about 130 miles from the Florida coast, the U.S. Coast Guard said.

      The migrants were severely dehydrated when they were found Friday and said they had been at sea 22 days. The bodies of those who didn’t make it were placed overboard, said Coast Guard Petty Officer Mark Barney. The survivors were in bad condition.

      “They could barely walk off the vessel itself,” Barney said. “They were weak and they were shaking.”

      I’d tell you how he was elected but I doubt your ignorant ass would understand.
      SM: Oh please do, because you sound so educated. Hmm, let me se, maybe because people bought his bullshit hope and change and he conspired with the IRS to defraud the American people and go after his political enemies. That’s a start. And the foolish RNC nominated a joke of an establishment candidate in McCain and Romney. Am I close?
