The President of the United States on Socialism vs. Capitalism: “Choose From What Works”

That an American president could travel to Cuba and heap praise on that country’s repressive communist dictators, and then proceed to Argentina — hardly a shining example of economic and financial progress — and disparage capitalism by implication is an indictment of the deplorable state of American liberty.

This must end. Continue reading
