    Re: Fidel latest to say Cuba's communism doesn't work

    I love it when we are so busy over whether or not capitalism works that we cant make serious conversations about reform.

    Just because we are capitalist does not mean SSI and Medicare aren't good ideas
    Just because China is communist doesn't mean they can't compete in a globalized market. (The money for infrastructure and investment come from the govt central bank rather than the private sector)

    I am most certain this is all Mr. Castro is trying to say. Not whether or not communism is right, but rather there are things that can be done to make it better.

    I must admit though, calling libs names at the beginning of this thread and arguing whether or not capitalism works at the end of this thread are entertaining stretches!
    and so it goes...

    Whoa. China didn't abandon communism. They made it work.... (purely meant by GDP growth and world status)
    and so it goes...

    Without fear of being voted out, with that Tiannenmen Square-ish swagger, the commies can use their citizens' money to provide the largest, most pollutant exploitative sweatshop system in the world!

    Shoes for 5?! Speaks for itself, doesn't it Left?!



    Not whether or not communism is right, but rather there are things that can be done to make it better.
    Proper democracy and the freedom of people to decide their own destinies would be a nice start. But perhaps not, when saving face for their government and well-wishing Leftists takes priority.




    IT'S JUST A DIFFERENT TYPE OF THE SPICE OF LIFE!

    Re: Fidel latest to say Cuba's communism doesn't work

    remember when obama's communications director anita dunn told a group of HI SCHOOL KIDS that her favorite "philosopher" was mass murderer mao?

    it was the same day she bragged that her white house CONTROLLED THE NEWS

    LOL!

    (hardly)

    it was either a few days before or a few after she declared the great FOX NEWS WAR, which the weak-kneed white house surrendered within two weeks

    and then she quit

    the vision, the principle, the competence

    not embarrassed yet?

    Im not in support of communism genius, I just get pissed when i see conservative cowards blatantly bash their ideology as if capalism is an ideology that surpasses it...do you think we are running a true capalistic country in US? psh, comon bro..

    i see you have scripture frmo teh Bible...maybe you should read ur bible again where it speaks abou treating your neighbor like urself, give a helping hand to the poor, speaking out against injustice and oppression...

    from what it seems like, ur just stepping over the poor yelling at them, "you peasants all have an equal chance to be like me"

    you have one hand behind their back giving them "support" to work for what they want, and ur other hand in their pockets cheating them...In fact, i suggest YOU look into the New Deal and FDR's intentinos.

    I am very liberal, and I have never ever thought this in my life. Just because conservatives like to assert this is true, doesn't make it so.

    The Great Depression happened because government interfered in markets, basically unleveling the playing field for all, and tilting it in favor of an elite few. That is also the reason that the melt down we are seeing today is happening. Perfect Capitalism, with no government intervention would eventually result in a Utopia. The reason Utopia hasn't happened is because government didn't give it a chance. They just stuck their noses where it didn't belong, and all hell broke loose.

    Would you be so quick to leap in to defend Nazism from people out to bash it, on a point of principle? For balance you probably ought to.



    And incidentally, Capitalism DOES surpass communism. With Capitalism, the state need not meddle in peoples' private lives and bank accounts and the poorest people in the West enjoy a higher standard of living and social security than their counterparts in Cuba.

    That starts the ball rolling, with those few enough for me anyway.
