Jermain Botsio: What do you think about our country in terms of socialism and the capitalism aspect? And where does Ocasio Cortez fit in this deal? Is she part of this catalyst to try to swing Americans to being socialists and accepting these radical ideas?
Barry Nussbaum: Oh, there’s no question Jermain and she brags about it. The position paper is written for her by her chief of staff, the one that just took the money and ran, are all about converting America from a capitalist-driven engine that has built the greatest economy the world has ever seen and turned it into socialism, where you take the money from people that have it and you give it to people that don’t have it. Remember, one of the great statesman of the 20th century, Margaret Thatcher, when she was prime minister of Great Britain, said the problem with socialism is eventually you run out of other people’s money because you can only take so much away from the people that produce and give it to the people that don’t produce. Then the people that aren’t producing, that are just getting money and have spent it and haven’t contributed to the replenishment of that money when the money gets cut off, things get really ugly. And people who are avowed supportive, socialists don’t understand history like Venezuela, like the Soviet Union, like communist China. If you’re a part of the ruling elite, you’re sitting pretty and you’re rich. But if you’re not. You’re on the dole and you don’t contribute. And when the money’s gone, things get ugly. I. E. what’s going on in Venezuela now.
