Shakedown Socialism


Oleg Atbashian of joined Alexis Garcia of PJTV to discuss his childhood in Russia where communism was painted as an ideal way to live. He later realized it wasn't - unless of course you like to stand in line for hours to get a loaf of bread - or be slaughtered by your dictator (benevolent comrade communist party leader).

As a Russian immigrant, he is ideally suited to write a book called Shakedown Socialism which details his concerns that the US is headed down the path towards socialism.

He says he can't believe he would have to write anti-socialist and anti-communist documents here in America - and frankly we are pretty surprised that the country has gotten to this point as well.

One of his points is that journalists seem to be obsessed by how much other people make.

Moreover he equates unions with communism - as they both espouse redistribution of wealth and "fairness". Not surprisingly, President Obama has been on record time and time again as a huge proponent of the idea and his policies are in lockstep with his words.

At one point in his interview he mentions the famous Margaret Thatcher quote, " The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money." This quote is especially relevant as country after country in Europe is really running out of other people's money before our eyes.

Other important topics in the book include all the red flags (pun intended) which are going off as a result of analysis of Obama's foreign and domestic policy.
