Well said! America became such a wonderful country not because of welfare!

Reader comment on item: Barack Obama's Muslim Childhood
in response to reader comment: WAKE UP PEOPLE!

Submitted by concern (United States), Jun 1, 2009 at 17:28

Cannot be more happy to read the words of common sense! America became a great country because it was built on the principles of capitalism! Now, as we all enjoy our life in this country, we want to change it! To get even more free stuff! But it will not be free! It will be paid by our working children and grandchildren, and then, when government will destroy the businesses with huge taxes, we all will be as poor as everyone in Socialist coutries, except for the government! Government will have all the benefits and power for themselves, as it was in Socialist countries. That is why Socialism failed in all the countries infected by it!
