Allen West “HUH? Obama says not much difference between capitalism and socialism, but here’s the part I agree with”

“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery” — Sir Winston Churchill.

As Written By Allen B. West:

After his tango solo, instead of being back in America or heading to Europe showing leadership to deal with global Islamic jihadism, President Obama was in Argentina lecturing young people on economic theory.

One thing is for sure — if any of you’ve studied the economic history of Argentina, you’ll see what government-centered socialist economic theory does to a nation. Then again, you don’t need to look at Argentina; do a case study anywhere in the world it’s been tried. It’s failed.

But apparently, President Obama skipped that part of his education alltogether.

You don’t have to worry about whether it neatly fits into socialist theory or capitalist theory — you should just decide what works.”

I think someone should share with President Obama the sage words from the wise and great King Solomon, Proverbs 17:28 (NIV), “Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if they hold their tongues.”

First of all, the fella who delivered the insidious statement, antithetical to the American entrepreneurial spirit, “if you own a business you ……
