The Beauty of Capitalism



Whenever I buy a nice dinner or see a person buy a car I revel in the capitalistic system.  I appreciate how millions of people’s needs could be taken care of by a system that depends on individuals developing means of prospering. I am thrilled that millions of individual units, people, can make do for themselves.


I have been a millionaire.  I am presently on social security.  I have been happy in both states.  But the communists only want to be powerful and rich.  They preach change but can’t stand change.  They want to rank high in their party and live prestigiously while the mass of people sink to the lower middle class.


Obama who is a budding communist in the soil of a socialist flower pot promises to help the middle class and then lowers their standard of living.  He tries to help us with one hand and kicks our feet out from under us with his arrogant shoe.


I think of the misery of being in a communistic system where a tiny percentage of the people are above starvation and not dependent on a gargantuan bureaucracy to give them jobs.


I think of liberals-cum-socialists-cum communists who believe in controlling everything when control means the lack of freedom and opportunity.


I think of how everyone hated Senator McCarthy for ruining the careers of a few potentially communist screenwriters when what he was doing was saving America from an egregiously bad form of government.


Liberalism is communism is fascism is death of the soul.  I am a trainer at Gleason’s Boxing Gym and twenty years ago a bunch of Russian fighters came over here to train.  You could see that they had no sense of humors and no life in their eyes. Communism is strictures is compression is regulations.


Regulations are Obama’s mantra. He is like an Indian mystic wandering the halls of the White House, reciting rules like “Om.”


Because he went to Harvard he seems intelligent.  But intelligence is the freedom to bounce thoughts against each other rather than to throw them to the ground and to tie their feet like steers at the rodeo.


We are all sickened by Obama’s philosophy.  It is unfortunate that we can’t straighten out the paper work on Obamacare to find some cure.
