To the contrary, the remaining Communist countries are (have always been) struggling and unstable.
THAT'S the road “O” wants to take us down.
This is supposed to be the ‘information age’ and yet most people don't know or care to know the basic facts about exactly how destructive and dehumanizing Communism is.
The historic record (not to mention current events) consistently bears out just what an abject mistake Communism is where ever it has been accepted by citizens or has been forced on to the unfortunate people of any country. It AIN'T privileged information... just have a look at a map or a history book.
What is more, as so many E. Europeans (and others) from Communist countries now live in America, all you have to do is ask one of THEM to make a comparison. THEY know the difference and wouldn't go back for anything.
Not too long ago, our neighbors had relatives who were recently made US citizens. They were from E. Europe. We drove them to the super market when they arrived. The gentleman (father of the family) stood in front of the produce counter and cried. He had never seen anything like it and couldn't believe his eyes!
I don’t think they are thinking they are communists,
kind of makes me really sick
