    President Joe Biden said outright Friday that he is “a proud capitalist” despite praising big government and pushing socialists polices that are anti-free market. Merriam-Webster’s dictionary defines socialism as “a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done.”
  • Sanders on difference with Warren: she's a capitalist 'I'm not'

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said in a new interview that a major difference between him and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is Warren's support of capitalism. In an interview airing Sunday with ABC's Jon Karl, Sanders struck a stronger tone in distancing himself from Warren's views on economic policy than he has in previous months, and again asserted that he was the strongest candidate to take on entrenched, powerful corporations and special interest groups in Washington. "There are differences between Elizabeth and myself," Sanders said, referring to Warren. "Elizabeth, I think, as you know, has said that she is a capitalist...

    Jess McIntosh, a former aide to presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, criticized Sen. Bernie Sanders for what she suggested was a hypocritical response to concerns over his own financial success amid his campaign's populist messaging. McIntosh's comments came after a Fox News townhall in which the Sanders defended the profits he made from his bestselling book as the result of his own success. "His message is capitalist!" McIntosh told CNN's Erin Burnett on Monday. “He’s literally saying ‘I made a product the market wanted, and I got rich off of it, and you can do that too,'" she added. Sanders, among...

    John Harwood conducted an interview with Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) this week which may not have produced much of substance, but definitely provided some interesting moments of comic relief. Warren is still seen as a likely entrant in the Democrats’ 2020 presidential primary and has buttered her bread with the fights she’s started with Wall Street and the investment banking industry. Harwood asked her about that, specifically wondering if she didn’t harbor some “malice” for capitalists. Warren’s response is a bit much to swallow but it’s worth a quick look at the video.

    Hillary Clinton on Wednesday claimed that being a “capitalist” hurt her in the 2016 primaries because so many Democrats are socialists. “It’s hard to know, but I mean if you’re in the Iowa caucuses and 41 percent of Democrats are socialists or self-described socialists, and I’m asked ‘Are you a capitalist?’ and I say, ‘Yes, but with appropriate regulation and appropriate accountability.’ You know, that probably gets lost in the ‘Oh my gosh, she’s a capitalist!’” Clinton said during a conversation with Alan Murray, the Chief Content Officer at Time Inc. Clinton barely defeated Sanders in the Iowa caucuses in...

    Hillary Clinton said Wednesday that being a capitalist probably hurt her cause in 2016 because so many Democrats in the party today are socialists. Her interviewer at the Shared Values Leadership Summit quipped Clinton might have been the first presidential candidate since World War II who had to stand up and announce she was a capitalist. "Did it hurt you?" he asked. "Probably," Clinton said. "It's hard to know, but if you're in the Iowa caucuses and 41 percent of Democrats are socialists, or self-described socialists, and I'm asked, ‘Are you a capitalist?' And I say, ‘Yes, but with appropriate...

    Obama wanted to be Trump: Surely nothing in recent times matches the glaring hypocrisy of Barack Hussein Obama aspiring to be Donald J. Trump and coveting the riches that mark Trump’s lifestyle. “More than two decades before he railed against Donald Trump’s “temperament” and “core values,” a young Barack Obama dreamed of becoming the billionaire businessman.” (Fox News, May 3, 2017) And he almost did. Obama, with millions of dollars, left the U.S. presidency as a very rich man. The difference between millionaire and billionaire is only a matter of where the zeroes are put.
  • Labor Day: A Capitalist Holiday

    Almost no one pays tribute to the American labor movement on Labor Day nowadays because America, despite its leftward drift in recent years, is not a nation that exalts brawn over brains or socialism over capitalism. Americans don’t care about President Obama’s final Labor Day message, a mixture of facts and well-worn leftist propaganda. “For generations, every time the economy changed, hardworking Americans marched and organized and joined unions to demand not simply a bigger paycheck for themselves, but better conditions and more security for the folks working next to them, too,” Obama said in his weekly address.

    Donald Trump is a successful businessman who can afford a 757. Obama is a street thug who never earned an honest dime in his whole life, but flies in Air Force One because millions of air-headed youth voted him President. Obama is a parasite who as a community organizer (whatever that is)who did nothing other than burden our system with more government handouts to blacks in Chicago so they didn't have to work. George Soros selected him to help Soros destroy our country as we have loved it for over 250 years.

    Given the choice between Donald Trump, successful capitalist who loves his country, and the socialist communists of Sanders or Clinton who hate the American System, I won't be able to pull the lever for Trump fast enough The historical run for president by billionaire Donald Trump has been filled with potholes, pitfalls, and protests. With many voters, there is little middle ground with the guy. Either you love him, or you hate him. . . well, hate his decision to try to become President of the United States, anyway. He’s being called “nationalist” and “populist” by the media, but an...

    Daily Beast ^ | 9/22/15
    A former CEO gets taken to the woodshed for job cuts—and loses an election. Sound familiar? Carly Fiorina has a Mitt Romney problem. Fiorina, like Romney, is a wealthy former CEO from an affluent Republican family. Like Romney, she entered the Republican presidential contest assuming that her record running a large company would be one of her greatest assets. But she may be about to learn that her opponents have little trouble turning that record into her greatest liability. Like Romney’s tenure at Bain Capital, the private equity firm at which he oversaw the dismantling of numerous companies purchased by...

    MSNBC host Krystal Ball suggested Tuesday that George Orwell’s famously anti-communist novel “Animal Farm” is an allegory for capitalism run amok, immediately setting the hair of literature professors across the country on fire. Ball spoke on MSNBC’s “The Cycle” about the recent release of French economist Thomas Piketty’s “Capital in the Twenty-First Century,” which argues capitalism is intrinsically unfair and advocates a global wealth tax to level the playing field. Ball noted that Piketty’s claims have been met with some criticism, which she felt was undeserved. “Piketty has predictably gotten the full Cold War treatment,” she claimed. “The National Review...

    Are you for or against capitalism? Doesn't that depend on how you define it? If any reader of this publication believed capitalism were an evil, greedy, law-breaking corruption of society, similar to abuses in Pope Francis's native Argentina, he would be against it. Conservative do not tolerate crony capitalism (that is, government intervention in business). Most voters -- who cancel out your vote -- have very different ideas than you do. Buried assumptions and widely-varying definitions are being exposed by a recent debate over Christianity, socialism, and capitalism. Controversy sparked by Pope Francis' Apostolic Exhortation and Rush Limbaugh's criticism has...

    Forbes ^ | 06/22/2013 | Kyle Smith
    Weighing the economics of Abraham Lincoln isn’t easy to do in today’s terms. Lincoln was pro-subsidy and pro-tariff, both of which stances tend to be assigned to the interventionist left in today’s discussions. But Lincoln’s infrastructurally and financially primitive economy was not ours, and it’s worth thinking about how he might govern today given that in his words there is an unshakeable faith in free enterprise. Lincoln was pro-business, laudatory of wealth creation (and the inequality that goes with it), against class warfare and in favor of exploiting natural resources. “Property,” he said in 1864, “is the fruit of labor...

    When Warren or Obama proudly announce that business did not create a building, that someone else created the building, they are highlighting their socialist belief and proud of it. They are misguided and it would be cute if such ignorance was not in power doing horrific damage to our country. It is appalling. For a business to have contracted a builder to build the building the business and the contractor had to agree upon a trade off of mutually rewarding benefits for each party. The business gets a building and the builders get money to use where they see fit....

    A quarter-century after her debut as a regular on TV's "Saturday Night Live," Victoria Jackson is back entertaining audiences in South Florida. The crowds are minuscule compared with the millions who saw her, often portraying a ditsy blonde, during six seasons on SNL. But this is entertainment with a purpose. With a small American flag stuck in her pulled-back hair at one event, playing a ukulele and singing at the next, Jackson is out to spread her conservative worldview and alert the uninformed to the threats she sees facing America. "There's an urgency in the air," she said during a...
