We in the United States today are trying to make sense of what the regime is doing. We are assuming they want a thriving economy and free independent businesses doing well. Nothing makes sense until we understand the regime is not headed by and comprised of capitalists; they are Marxists. It is like wondering why a fish is not doing well outside of water. Marxism is based on philosophy and not economics.
The Marxist’s premise is capitalism is bad and must be abolished. All commerce must be centralized and controlled by the state. An economy growing at a pace greater than the growth of population is not desirable because it just increases the wealth of the oppressor. Unemployment, under employment, and part time employment are just fine since the proceeds of labor or the GDP is to be shared fairly with all members of society whether working or not.
The Obama regime with its Marxist/Progressive philosophy is truly happy and in all likely hood elated with the way things are going. They are ignoring the United States Constitution and the concept of rule of law and operating as the dictatorship of the proletariat should when ruling a totalitarian state. They have centralized over 20% of the economy under the federal government under the guise of health care. They have gained great control over granting of credit under the Dodd Frank Law so they can share wealth and social engineer. They have signed an executive order to control all communications within the nation. They are systematically dismantling the military. They are moving forward with the dictate to bankrupt the nation, but first will be bankrupting cities and states.
Meanwhile the right is discussing how we use sound economic policies so our economy can grow based on sound capitalistic policies. The regime could care less about sound economic policies; they care only about their philosophy of bringing about a totally equal and conforming society ruled by the dictatorship of the proletariat.
YOU MUST UNSERSTAND YOUR OPPONENT AND RECOGNIZE WHO HE IS. The right refuses to do this.
