"There also exists another alliance -- at first glance a strange one, a surprising one -- but if you think about it, in fact, one which is well grounded and easy to understand. This is the alliance between our Communist leaders and your capitalists. This alliance is not new. ... We observe continuous and steady support by the businessmen of the West of the Soviet Communist leaders."

Alexander Solzhenitsyn
(1918-2008) Russian novelist, Soviet dissident, imprisoned for 8 years for critizing Stalin in a personal letter, Nobel Prize for Literature, 1970

True. Old Armand Hammer, the oil magnet, was a good buddy to Lenin.

    And it continues today, all of our money is going to the Chineese and they are buying our bonds. We should stop buying their junk that we don't need and give our money to Uncle Sam in taxes so he can pay off the bonds.

    I read once where the US Government gave the Soviet Union and Communist China over one trillion taxpayers USD $$$, during the Cold War period, all the while telling us to support and die in their fight against communism in Korea and Vietnam!?

    The Russian Revolution was funded by Wall Street. During the Korean and Vietnam Wars, the UN passed intelligence to the Communists about every move the US military was going to make. The only way to conquer America is covertly from within since we can defend any open attack. The takeover of our monetary system by private bankers that not only rents us our own currency but the currencies of the rest of the world, too, has resulted in the virtual enslavement of the people to the counterfeiting bankers. But pay no attention to the man behind the curtain, eh? Waffler has it half right -- boycott goods produced by communist/slave labor, and start manufacturing in the US again -- without unions (racketeers, mafia, and parasites)! And do not give Washington another dime -- they don't need it, they can create their own money out of thin air, and they do. They don't need our money.

    Capitalists will sell their products to any willing market. Socialists make rich patrons of their theocratic good ole boy networks while vain claiming capitalism.
