The Socialist pals pres__ent Obama palled around with recently in South America have issued their Declaration of Cumaná, claiming, “Capitalism threatens life on the planet,” seemingly led by the Bama’s newest close bud, Venezuela’s socialist wannabe dictator, Hugo Chavez.
This sophistry of a “declaration” rejects the Draft Declaration of the 5th Summit of the Americas and lists the reasons, or points, the Heads of State and Government of Bolivia, Cuba, Dominica, Honduras, Nicaragua and Venezuela reject it. Most notably from these communist loving leaders is “The Declaration unfairly excludes Cuba, without mentioning the consensus in the region condemning the blockade and isolation to which the people and the government of Cuba have incessantly been exposed in a criminal manner.”
Travel to Southeast Florida and ask those Cubans who successfully made it across the Florida Straits into America who the “criminal” is and see whether or not they agree with the Heads of State and Government of Bolivia, Cuba, Dominica, Honduras, Nicaragua and Venezuela.
The Bama was seen in a very friendly handshake with Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez, even though just days earlier Chavez labeled the newly anointed one an “ignoramus.” The Bama even gleefully accepted an anti-American book given him as a gift by Chavez and departing with a very audible, “adios, mi amigo.”
Obama has even indicated his desire to end the 49 year-old embargo imposed upon Communist Cuba originally by the Democrat 35th President, John F. Kennedy, shortly after the Castro regime defeated Cuba’s forces and imposed communism openly on the small island nation.
Most troubling is the very first “topic for discussion” in this Declaration of Cumaná, “Capitalism is leading humanity and the planet to extinction,” flowed closely by the 2nd topic, “Capitalism has caused the environmental crisis, by submitting the necessary conditions for life in the planet, to the predominance of market and profit.”
What strange points coming from those who lead nations that produce and sell their products worldwide for a profit! Capitalism is profit oriented and even though they desire to continue their profits, they openly condemn the very system they profit from?
Two communist nations have moved towards Capitalism and are showing signs of improved economies. China and Viet Nam have discovered that selling their wares on the open free market actually does work. They haven’t totally left communism behind, but they have made some strides. Their people may be feeling the benefit as they too are rewarded with paychecks to have more than they did before.
Topic three says, “The global economic crisis, climate change, the food crisis and the energy crisis are the result of the decay of capitalism, which threatens to end life and the planet.”
We need look no further than Chavez’s Venezuela to see how the socialism he tries to impose upon the citizens there has resulted in starvation and misery for the poor especially in Venezuela.
Number 9 is of interest to us all as it states, “We condemn the discrimination against migrants in any of its forms. Migration is a human right, not a crime. Therefore, we request the United States government an urgent reform of its migration policies in order to stop deportations and massive raids and allow for reunion of families.”
First of all, will these nations repeal their own immigration laws and allow American’s free travel to and fro in their nations? Will they grant mass entitlements to us should we decide to “migrate” to their country? Don’t count on it!
Second, with the outbreak of swine flu and potential pandemic, it would behoove us to ensure all people entering our country be vaccinated, as our immigration laws call for. Those “freely entering” the country by sneaking across the border in the dead of night most likely are not vaccinated and might possibly spread the virus.
Do these Heads of State and Government of Bolivia, Cuba, Dominica, Honduras, Nicaragua and Venezuela allow free crossing of their borders to any who might be infected or carriers of disease?
Don’t be fooled by these “topics of discussion” parroted by tinhorn dictators and lovers of communism. They are nothing more than recommendations to turn the whole world socialist first, communist afterwards. Of course, at the top of the chain, they will live luxurious lifestyles while the common man goes without, as was seen throughout the former Soviet Union and as is still seen in North Korea and Cuba, where even the most basics of life are rationed or gone.
Capitalism, while imperfect, has elevated man to levels of life previously unimagined and unattained by several others who continue to believe third world status is better. It has brought not only prosperity to the majority of the masses, but improved healthcare and medical discoveries.
If you think Capitalism is greed, I invite you to look at the Socialist dictators and how their lifestyles compare to those of the common citizens beneath them. Who is greedier? The corporation who creates jobs and such and hires people and allows the free reign with their checks? Or the dictator who takes what he pleases from the masses and leaves them only starvation and misery?
Socialism does promise “free healthcare,” but is it free when you cannot even get it?
This is the people the Bama has embraced over our long time allies and friends. Many of his policies mirror some of the topics for discussion listed by these tinhorn dictators.
Will Obama sit idly by and watch third world dictatorships bypass America and slowly turn us into their version of socialism? Will he continue traveling abroad to apologize for all the gains we have helped others make?
Don’t forget, he had nothing bad to say about Nicaragua’s Daniel Ortega and his 50-minute diatribe against America.
Why am I left wondering if the one you elected president even loves this country as much as those of us who fought and sacrificed for it?
