    Inflation actually increased (given VAT). Any subsequent fall was associated with the collapse of the economy. She managed to force the worst ever depression in the country's history. That takes effort!

    Why would the general government ever spend money to produce butter? It has no such authority.

    This is an idiotic statement. No communism, no positive comment available by deliberately destroying private enterprise.

    Except for the fact that neither present anything close to being accurate.
    Perhaps labels should have been included?

    What on earth are you ranting about now? What is communist malinvestment? Try and justify just one of your comments. Please make sure you detail clearly the investment and also the communist political economy involved. Reference to economic theory and empirical evidence would be jolly!

    You have to understand that according to our friend, if it isn't free market capitalist exploitation, it's "communist".

    True, but the 'Christian Republican' is probably more clued up than the fake libertarians. That says a lot!
