In the most stark and telling role-reversal, Vladimir Putin understands what America is hurtling toward with the "Stimulus":
Putin Warns US About Socialism
"Russian Prime Minister Vladamir Putin has said the US should take a lesson from the pages of Russian history and not exercise “excessive intervention in economic activity and blind faith in the state’s omnipotence”.How do you dismiss it as "Fear Mongering" when the former Head of the KGB recognizes this as a giant government over-reach toward Socialism?
“In the 20th century, the Soviet Union made the state’s role absolute,” Putin said… “In the long run, this made the Soviet economy totally uncompetitive. This lesson cost us dearly. I am sure nobody wants to see it repeated.”
What could possibly carry more weight, at this moment, than the current Prime Minister of Russia saying:
"Don't do this - We've been where you are - Don't Do This."
I got nuthin'.
