If You Won't Believe Me About Socialism...

...believe Lech Walesa.

Items that stand out (in the video): 1) Lech Walesa tells his American audience that the United States no longer leads the world politically or morally 2) At least one of your Founding Bloggers asks President Walesa if he thinks America is slipping toward Socialism. His Answer? Yes!

Yeah, like exquisitely refined and intellectually elevated socialists are going to give any consideration to the opinions of a mere electrician.

And you think that when this is regularly referred to as a conservative country, and half the country votes Republican, and the GOP is allegedly ready to retake Congress, and Obama is expected to be out in four years, and governorships are swinging right again ... that the United States is going to become socialist?

Well, if we conclude that most people (not Lech) having the discussion have not the slightest idea what socialism is, then you may be right.

Gallup poll last week: only one in four Americans know sixty votes are needed to block a filibuster or that the Democrats just lost the supermajority.
