Russian Vladimir Putin more of a capitalist than liberal Democrats.

Some may accuse conservatives of using the "socialist" tag against liberal Democrats as a scare tactic but I assure you the label is well deserved. Former KGB and ex-communist Prime Minister Putin of Russia warned Americans of the dangers of reverting to socialism. Putin was quoted as saying, "In the 20th. Century, the Soviet Union made the state’s role absolute,” “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.” Are you listening President Obama-Pelosi-Reid?

PM Putin went on to say, “Nor should we turn a blind eye to the fact that the spirit of free enterprise, including the principle of personal responsibility of businesspeople, investors, and shareholders for their decisions, is being eroded in the last few months. There is no reason to believe that we can achieve better results by shifting responsibility onto the state.” Putin sounds like a conservative compared to the liberal-socialist Democrats of America. If you told me last week that Putin would be lecturing Democrats about the dangers of socialism, I would swear that I was dreaming.

Putin also sounded Reaganesque when he said, “we must assess the real situation and write off all hopeless debts and ‘bad’ assets. True, this will be an extremely painful and unpleasant process. Far from everyone can accept such measures, fearing for their capitalization, bonuses, or reputation. However, we would ‘conserve’ and prolong the crisis, unless we clean up our balance sheets.” This is a sad day indeed when an ex-communist warns America and the socialist regime now in charge against the perils of socialism. Are you listening America?
