    Not to mention that the people with money and businesses are leaving the country. Oh wait, that sounds just like California.

    Does anyone else see the irony in a Socialist running on a "Pro-Growth" platform?

    Ah, but did he say what it was exactly he wanted to grow? That's just more of his "Bait and Switch", er...I mean "Hope and Change".

    One day soon--Europe will run out of Germany's money.
    But, they will be loathe to start trouble with the Fourth Reich.

    stealing BOs schtick there. even they realize that needs to happen to get other people's money to squander on cronies. of course they think taxing the population to death is growth. always disappointed when it doesn't work like planned.

    The most prosperous countries in the world, China and Australia, are still run by Socialists or Labor.

    There is huge difference between forced labor in China and a labor union in Australia.

    Australia is well-off because it spends little on defense, has a small population and has an entire continent to mine for minerals and wealth.
    Not unlike Canada and Russia. These are not faults, of course, but they are the reality.

    Has nothing to do with form of government.
