Subject: 'Dear Leader' Speaks To Argentinian Youth

President Obama has stoked controversy after he responded to a question from an audience of Argentinian youth about nonprofit community organizations and the necessity of attracting funding from both the public and private sectors.

“So often in the past there has been a division between left and right, between capitalists and communists or socialists, and especially in the Americas, that’s been a big debate,” Obama said.

“Those are interesting intellectual arguments, but I think for your generation, you should be practical and just choose from what works. You don’t have to worry about whether it really fits into socialist theory or capitalist theory. You should just decide what works,” he added.

Obama went on to praise Cuba’s socialist system under dictator Raúl Castro, touting the country’s free access to basic education and health care, although he acknowledged that Havana itself “looks like it did in the 1950s” because the economy is “not working”.

He speaks the truth. The rulers must decide what works for their situation (country). What they call it can determine its acceptance among the little people (servants).

In Cuba they call it communism.

In America they call it capitalism.

Either way, the elite own everything of importance, and call all of the shots (make all the rules) and collect all of the taxes.
