In this article, you'll explore capitalism: its roots, principles and effects, benefits and shortcomings. We'll find out how capitalism compares to the alternative method of doing business. Incidentally, the United States doesn't actually practice capitalism. No one does these days.

Despite the overreaching claims printed on the book jacket there was no actual correspondence between Lincoln and Marx. The book uses correspondence between the IWA and Charles Francis Adams, head of the U.S. legation in England. The author attempts to equate that each of these individuals represent the figure heads in the title. A stretch maybe.

We cannot. The Democrats have proven we cannot trust them or an agency like the IRS with anything.
Obama's and the Democrats big government has failed.
If Government 'failed' it has to be blamed on republicans' love of the sequester--republicans want government to fail so their corporate cronies can rape and rob the American people of their hard-earned income. "Republicans continually tied the scandal to attacks on the IRS in general, often citing audits by their supporters as proof of the agency’s overreach.

“The reality is this is not a personnel problem. This is a problem of the IRS being too large, too powerful, too intrusive and too abusive of honest, hardworking taxpayers,” said Rep. Dave Camp (R-MI).

But Miller had another explanation for why his agents pursued such questionable practices — funding. The commissioner asked the committee to increase funding to his agency, citing budget constraints as a major reason why agents sought shortcuts to identify questionable applications.

“In the last 10 years, the budget of the IRS, adjusted for the size of the population and inflation, has come down 17 percent,” according to tax expert David Cay Johnston.

Committee members offered several examples of groups being denied 401(c)(4) status or delayed endlessly. However, there’s no evidence that suggests Republican spending was hindered by this IRS’s shortcut.

“Of the 21 organizations that received rulings from the IRS after January 1, 2010, and filed FEC reports in 2010 or 2012, 13 were conservative,” writes OpenSecretsblog‘ Robert Maguire.”They outspent the liberal groups in that category by a factor of nearly 34-to-1, the Center for Responsive Politics analysis shows.”Check this out: http://www.nationalmemo.com/outgoing-irs-chie...

Which party supposedly represents the "disenfranchised", the poor, unemployed, oppressed minorities, handicapped, etc.?
Which party supposedly represents the evil rich, greedy CEO's, business owners, people with fat bank accounts?
If we conservatives are so stupid, how did we end up with all the money? And if you libs are so smart, why do you need us to pay for your health care, retirement, SNAP card, Section 8, etc.?
Why can't you use some of your brilliance to stand on your own two feet? Why do you need the gubbermint to protect you from evil corporations, evil rich people?
It's very simple. Leftists can't make it on their own, they are pathetic, parasitic weaklings that want gubbermint to solve their problems. Your leadership tells you the reason you are a loser ISN'T because you are an underachiever, it's because of The Man keeping you down.
And you bought it.
That's why liberals pushed forward with the American Revolution while the rich and wealthy under the british crown stayed home.

Good for you.

There is a book that looks at the FDR policies called FDR Follies-read it. You are being obtuse if you want to claim all of FDR's actions were good for recovery or a blind partisan stooge.
You keep wanting to whine about recessions failing to realize that these periodically do occur especially centered around BIG GOVERNMENT programs as the cause. They also have a habit of correcting in about half the time of their endurance. Obama is 4 1/2 years behind schedule.
RAising taxes and reducing debt at the same time was the CBO directors concern. Noticed you forgot part of the statement.
A book. Somewhere. Written by some idiot. Yep you cling to that oe just like you cling to Fox News, Limbaugh & Glenn Beck..

The CBO said the deficit reduction was NOT to the recent efforts to cut spending (sequestration). Just like I said.

From the report:

" The $200 billion reduction to the estimated deficit comes not from the $85 billion in mandatory cuts known as sequestration, nor from the package of tax increases that Congress passed this winter to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. The office had already incorporated those policy changes into its February forecasts.

Rather, it comes from higher-than-expected tax payments from businesses and individuals, as well as an increase in payments from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the mortgage finance companies the government took over as part of the wave of bailouts thrust upon Washington in the darkest days of the financial crisis. "

This makes you a liar once again.

just read the book of what was going on here in the US Socially & Economically during Lincoln's time which is why Karl Marx was intrigued with the US and had several writings about the US and labeled the US as Socialism and going through the Change of proceeding towards either Capitalism or Communism and remember Karl Marx is the one that invented the terms Capitalism, Communism & Socialism too.

Communism vs Fascism
http://www.diffen.com/difference/Communism_vs...
Here is the one definition I found deliberately obtuse describing Communism-

No leader, directed directly by the people. This has never been actually practiced, and has just used a one-party system.

Heck no, it has never been used as the definition for Fascism is the norm for Communism.

One charismatic leader has absolute authority. Often the symbol of the state.
