The Republicans bring Socialism to America

The Republicans bring Socialism to America and of course the Markets aren’t happy.

Just as it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a crisis to change the system, but give the Republicans their due; they’ve taken the ball and run with it.

Secretary of the Treasury Henry “Vladimir Illyich” Paulson and Fed Chairman Ben “Keynes” Bernanke have in the course of one week, nationalized over half the home mortgage Industry and bought eighty percent of the world’s biggest Insurance Company in the name of “We, the people.” Talk about ten days that shook the world. And we all know that Paulson and Bernanke are not through yet.

The financial system remains in deep, deep, crisis. Before “Lenin” and “Keynes” are done, they’re going to end up nationalizing Ford, GM, Goldman-Sachs, your auntie’s beauty parlor and the crack house on the corner. Even John McCain can read the writing on the wall.

As Robert Scheer put it in a recent column, McCain has taken to channeling “his inner Marx,” calling the American worker, “the fundamental of the US economy.” Then the next day McCain said he intended to end “reckless conduct, corruption and unbridled greed on Wall Street.”

McCain said “Government has a clear responsibility to act in defense of the public interest and that’s exactly what I intend to do. In my administration, we’re going to hold people on Wall Street responsible. And we’re going to enact and enforce reforms to make sure these outrages never happen in the first place.”

Wow. To hear John-Marx McCain these days, it seems almost a no-brainer that he’s the man to take on the predations of the market system. Of course the Democrats say not so fast. They argue that there are two John McCain’s: John-Marx and “bald faced, lying John.”

They say that the place John-Marx McCain should begin his campaign against the corruption of Wall Street is with a public burning of his own demented health care plan that actually calls for new taxes on your employer based health care benefits. The Democrats say that the reason McCain want to tax our health care is drive us all—singly—into the wonderland of the free market health care environment (so that the magic of the market can do it’s work)

The Democrats say this slick corporate front man is the real McCain and that Jean-Marx is a fraud.

The Democrats may be right about the two McCain’s, but meanwhile, “Lenin” and “Keynes” are busy with a massive—and admittedly desperate—Soviet style nationalization of  “the commanding heights of the economy.”

The Republicans bring Socialism to America and all the Democrats can do is pick, pick, pick.
