Phill Donohue had economist Milton Friedman as a guest on his show in 1979.
Friedman spelled out the most basic lesson of economics. Capitalism is better than anything else at delivering people out of poverty and history proves it. Still Donohue's fellow travelers and liberal "true believers" don't get it! Now, led by a new "Messiah" they are, in spite of all evidence, taking the nation down the path of proven economic destruction that, we believe, will lead many into misery.
You can see when viewing the link at the bottom of the page that Donohue was at a loss to answer ANY question when comparing Capitalism to anything else in history when it comes to creating a good life for those willing to work for it.
Liberalism and socialism have got to be cult beliefs. These beliefs defy reason, all rationality, ignore the proof of history and rely on dogma. It seems that the only way any thinking person can explain it is that they are pseudo religious beliefs pursued by idialogues for no explainable reason. The proof that liberalism, socialism and communism do not work and, in fact, create misery for millions is ignored by those who advocate and attempt beyond all reason to force others to live with it. That's what we are facing today.
