The Obamessiah is in good company with his distain for capitalism.....

Its no wonder that that the Obamessiah gave such a warm reception to the Venezuelan dictator recently. Since we can see the output these guys at their recent communist summit. The communist dictators in the Americas got together and declared the following anti-capitalist manifesto festooned with all kinds of stuff that sounds quite similar to the American political party, the Democrats, positions....
We, the Heads of State and Government of Bolivia, Cuba, Dominica, Honduras, Nicaragua and Venezuela, member countries of ALBA, consider that the Draft Declaration of the 5th Summit of the Americas is insufficient and unacceptable for the following reasons:
1. Capitalism is leading humanity and the planet to extinction. What we are experiencing is a global economic crisis of a systemic and structural nature, not another cyclic crisis.
2. Capitalism has caused the environmental crisis, by submitting the necessary conditions for life in the planet, to the predominance of market and profit.
3. 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. To avert this outcome, it is necessary to develop and model an alternative to the capitalist system. A system based on:
- solidarity and complementarity, not competition;
- a system in harmony with our mother earth and not plundering of human resources;
- a system of cultural diversity and not cultural destruction and imposition of cultural values and lifestyles alien to the realities of our countries;
- a system of peace based on social justice and not on imperialist policies and wars;
- in summary, a system that recovers the human condition of our societies and peoples and does not reduce them to mere consumers or merchandise.

4. As a concrete expression of the new reality of the continent, we, Caribbean and Latin American countries, have commenced to build our own institutionalization, an institutionalization that is based on a common history dating back to our independence revolution and constitutes a concrete tool for deepening the social, economic and cultural transformation processes that will consolidate our full sovereignty.
5. We question the G20 for having tripled the resources of the International Monetary Fund when the real need is to establish a new world economic order that includes the full transformation of the IMF, the World Bank and the WTO, entities that have contributed to this global economic crisis with their neoliberal policies.
6. The solutions to the global economic crisis and the definition of a new international financial scheme should be adopted with the participation of the 192 countries that will meet in the United Nations Conference on the International Financial Crisis to be held on June 1-3 to propose the creation of a new international economic order.
Well, I for one, think that capitalism has serve the world effectively. Otherwise, we would have seen the USSR, North Korea, Cuba, Eastern Europe pre-1989 and the 1960's Maoist Chinese leading the world and raising standards of living and opportunity amoung its citizens.

Soon this group will welcome the newest member of this communist cabal, the American President and campaigner-in-chief who wants to spread the wealth around and control this through climate change legislation and a coterie of higher and taxes. Good luck, USA, you were once a great country. Now you will be no better than a Nicaragua or Venezuela.
