News Flash: Mortgage Corportation is now "Socialist"

Georgia Newsom of Sylva, North Carolina writes in today’s Asheville Citizen-Times against the candidacy of Barack Obama by pointing to what she calls “socialism”:

“Why complain? Government intervention, especially Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, programs run by the government with roots going back to the 1930s, has already triggered and contributed to a financial meltdown that has collapsed the life savings of many, more socialism and Marxism will just be more of the same…. Interventionist, communist, Marxist socialism bankrupted Russia and ultimately will do the same for us.”

Someone explain to me the socialist, communist, Marxist nature of a corporation not funded by taxpayers that loans out capital with interest. I just don’t get it.

  • Doesn’t she know that it wasn’t communism that bankrupted the USSR, that it was unrestrained military spending?

    Oh…wait…the USA’s doing that now…ohh boy.

    It was not socialist until the Government Bought it you Dum Dum! You are trying to make people think because it was Capitalist before it was Government run. You Lib’s are the most ignorant people on the face of the earth and you hope those in the lower income class are just as ignorant as you so you can drive your false class warfare as they are already prejudice against those who have more and what better way to do that then tell them the ol Robin Hood story where you will take from those who actually supply the Job’s in this country and give to the huddled masses.

    “Family matter,” my foot.

    By the way: Where in the world is Aunti Zeituni? Who knows? And if it wasn’t Barack Obama who helped her get here, who did? How did she get a Social Security card? Who advised her to apply for public housing? Who did she know with a saavy enough legal background to help her navigate the paperwork of the welfare state?

    Unrestrained? What Little everyone had was being taken to fund the Military. We do not do that but anyhow the first order of the President is to protect it’s citizens against foreign and domestic terror. The former Soviets were not Capitalist then. You think and want to fund every whim of your communist/Socialist pea brain. Stop acting like you are not a socialist and come out into what you truly are!

    To think. This brainless dolt is out there in the world spouting his convoluted gibberish while having precisely NO concept of what Communism and Capitalism are.

    The concepts of Communism are so misunderstood in this country that when a pure Capitalist system collapses under its own weight (as predicted by Marx), The only solution proposed by these dimwits is to blame the only group that had nothing whatever to do with it.

    What is it the GWB said? You can fool some of the idiots most of the time but those who can fool me are Communists.

    McCarthy would be proud.
