Emboldened by Obama’s Latin American apology tour they unite to plunge the region into economic and political chaos.
Latin America, which throughout the 20th Century has been a hotbed of corruption, political instability and oppression, appears to be on the brink of repeating those mistakes once again. This latest dance into darkness was on display at The Bolivarian Alternative for Latin America and the Caribbean (ALBA for short). ALBA is theÂ communist equivalentÂ of the Organization of American States and the conference held in Cumana, Venezuela, hosted by the clown Hugo Chavez, President for life of Venezuela, is their version of the Summit of the America’s recently attended by President Obama.

An interesting take on Socialism & Slavery
from the lateÂ Doctor Adrian Rogers, three times President of the Southern Baptist Convention
& is pointed out to us byÂ GweilicusÂ &Â Bashing Bambi. Not only was the late Dr Rogers spot on with his comments on the destructive nature of the re-distribution of wealth through taxation
You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friends, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
