How Red Will We Get?
Austan Goolsbee, long time friend and now economic adviser to the President, admitted last night they’re consulting communism’s founding documents: “I mean, it’s been a long, long time since things were this bad, so we kind of had to go back and look at the old textbooks – Karl Marx, Trotsky – and the thing that we found was that it was critical that we do something,” He was speaking at a comedy club, so I guess his supporters either think Communism’s a good thing or it was meant to be a joke.
But I’m not finding it funny. Given the breathtaking grabs for power and money, it appears to me they’re most certainly enacting a social framework that leads to a Communist government.
I’ve seen the inside of a Communist country. It doesn’t work for you; you work for it. And it’s ugly.
