Bauman on Obama/Putin

President Obama has repeatedly forced the federal government further and further into the economy, increased the national debt, and printed money recklessly. In images-1that light, read the following quotations:

[1) “… the role of the state in economy was made absolute, which eventually lead to the total non-competitiveness of the economy. That lesson cost us very dearly. I am sure nobody would want history to repeat itself.”

(2)”… during the last months, we have been witnessing the washout of the entrepreneurship spirit. That includes the principle of the personal responsibility – of a businessman, an investor or a share-holder – for his or her own decisions. There are no grounds to suggest that by putting the responsibility over to the state, one can achieve better results.”

[3] “Unreasonable expansion of the budget deficit accumulation of the national debt — are as destructive as an adventurous”5tock market game.”

(4] “It is of vital importance that the countries responsible for the world’s reserve currencies offer more transparency for their credit and monetary policies.”

Those quotations did not come from Mitt Romney; they came from Valdimir Putin.

Now ask yourself, who’s actually further to the economic left, Obama or Putin, the former Chicago community organizer and current President of the United States, or the former KGBer and current head of Russia? Who learned from the Soviet debacle and who did not?

Voted for the wrong guy, did you?
