      Capitalism has proven itself far superior to Communism. The only time Capitalism fails is when it is infected with Communism, then unemployment occurs.
      I thought you knew this? Even KGB subverter knows Marxist/Communist ideology has built-in self destruct mechanism. It has no loyalty to the system and does not want feedback from people to make it better.

    Great example of the FAILED COMMUNIST regime where one could not even afford toilet paper. The entire USSR is still 50 years behind the Western European Countries and the United States. Obama would fit in well in a Communist country.

      Considering the fact that the USSR hasn’t existed for the last 20 years, I can definitely conclude that Germany is atleast 20 years behind the rest of the world.
