Call It Whatever You Want, But It’s Not “Capitalism”

Twinkie is gone, Save Jerseyans, and the labor unions responsible for artificially inflating labor rates are blaming capitalism… the same system that once allowed these great American companies like Hostess to develop and expand.
 
Something has gone horribly wrong in America. When the country was much younger, the great French historian Alexis de Tocqueville toured the continent and observed how “[d]emocracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word, equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.”

Historian, yes, but “prophet” would’ve been an equally valid designation. He believed in America’s potential and saw into our future. 173 years after the publication of his most famous work, Democracy in America, then-Senator Obama declared his intention to spread the wealth around on the campaign trail. That’s not from a kook fringe site; those words passed own lips, folks! And his redistributionist policies over the past four years which have brought this nation perilously close to the edge of a fiscal cliff. In Europe, this is called “socialism.” Call it whatever you want here, but it’s not “capitalism.”

We’re jobless, hopeless, and now, Twinkie-less because of it. Are employers/capitalists to blame? Or the politicians who are supplanting our long-standing free enterprise system with a centralized, state-run alternative which is failing everywhere it’s tried in Europe and South America?

It’s time to stop blaming Bush and start examining the value of these competing philosophies. Back in September, investor-turned-radio host Peter Schiff crashed the North Carolina DNC and interviewed convention-goers concerning their economic instincts. Keep in mind: these aren’t random folks from the street (like you may see on a late show segment). These are core members of the Democrat Party establishment:

    Incompetent management, far more than labor unions, are the reason Hostess collapsed.

    Romney like Venture Capitalists (re: Vultures)…did Hostess in…since they filed for bankruptcy in 2004…will you blame Bush instead of President Obama? You need to do some research Matt…its starting to get a bit shoddy.

    When you are buying basketball shoes do not assume your feet haven't changed since the last fitting; measure again to make sure. The average child will outgrow their shoes quickly. Some people figure they stop growing once they reach adulthood, but this is not necessarily true. Any store that sells basketball shoes will be able to offer exact measurements of your feet. When you find a pair of basketball shoes that you want; make sure your feet feel well supported. The proper fit of a shoe does not allow any sort of room for slippage.
