"After labeling Barack Obama a 'socialist,' you wouldn't think conservatives would be taking their cues from socialists, right? You'd be wrong. From the 'flat tax' to the ideal capitalist system, Republican presidential candidates seem to be getting their ideas and inspiration from current and former socialist regimes." [editor's note: Mr. Heath makes some interesting comparisons here, noting GOPer references to "mimicking China" in some of their speeches, and then citing the Soviet experiments with flat taxes. The supreme irony is in how many GOP/conservative outlets try to compare Obama's policies ... with the principles of Marxism - SAT] (11/16/11)
