Capitalism still favored

The Spokesman-Review

Unfortunately, the leftist leanings of David Blairs were painfully obvious in his letter to The Spokesman-Review on Dec. 22, so if he thought he was being clever and wasn’t revealing his political persuasion he desperately needs to try another tactic, because it failed.

In the middle of his letter he states, “As for trading democracy for socialism, I believe democracy is the right of the voters to choose a government. That government can be whatever the majority want – capitalist, socialist, etc.”

What Mr. Blairs stated is laughable because it shows the hypocrisy of the left. Poll after poll shows most Americans still want a capitalist country and not the socialist utopia that President Obama and the Democrats in Congress are trying to force on this nation, and yet a few hundred federal employees (yes, they work for us) are working overtime to inflict their socialist agenda on a few hundred million citizens. That’s democracy?
