The socialist is at bat and has struck out three times in the European stadium. But unlike baseball, socialism is not a game and the batter will not be called out. When the dust settles after this latest strikeout, the socialist will still be crouched low at the plate aware that the game is still rigged in his favor. The uniform might look different each time he appears, and the stance might look slightly different, but the batter will still be the same. The confused opposition will still play an honest game. They will stand tall in the outfield and stem the latest onslaught by the socialist team while scratching their heads in wonderment.
The first socialist strikeout in the European stadium occurred in 1945 when the pitcher, Franklin D. Roosevelt, knocked out the Nazi socialist batter, known as the "Superman," with a pitch known as World War II. The Nazi socialist team entered the field in peak condition after having knocked out their weaker opponents, the smaller farm teams in their neighborhood with names like Czechoslovakia, Poland, Holland and Norway.
These warm-up series gave the Nazi socialist team the opportunity to perfect their tactic, which they called "blitzkrieg." The Nazi socialist team strategy was to build on their stamina by confiscating the goods and the property of their smaller and weaker neighbors after having placed them under their heel. The opposition team, which organized itself under the name "The Allied Powers," marshaled all of its considerable strength and courage and struck out the Nazi socialists.

The second strikeout occurred in 1989 when the opposition team, calling itself the "Western Democracies," mobilized their morale and considerable material and moral strength to beat the Soviet socialist team, known as the "Communists," along with their minor-league Eastern European farm players known as the "Satellites." The "Western Democracies," inspired by the leadership of their captain, Ronald Reagan, and the skill of their players, including Margaret Thatcher, Lech Walesa and Pope John Paul II, won that game after many dreary and inclement no-hit innings known as the "Cold War." The corrupt and weak "Communist" team lost its nerve due to the "evil empire" taunt from the stands and by the fact that, unlike the "Western Democracy" fans in the stadium, they had to wait in line for eight hours just to buy a lousy McDonald's hamburger.
The Communist team strategy of "expropriating" the wealth and property of their "fans" caught up with them during the 1989 game. They were exposed to their"fans" as frauds. The Communist team tactic, which they called the "collective," had been the source of their strength for an interminably long and nasty number of innings, but after a while this left too many of their "fans" too poor, too sick and too hungry to cheer them on. Rather than losing to the "Western Democracies," the "Communists" blew their own game and imploded on their own putrid rot.

Now the European welfare-state common-market socialist batter is on deck and primed for what will no doubt be the final strikeout. The Greek player has just struck out. The Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and British players in the bullpen are looking tired and anemic. The team strategy, called the "public-sector taxpayer-funded bogus job," is being exposed as a fraud. This time the captain of the team that use to be leader of the opposition, Barack Obama, is on the socialist team's side and is ready to throw the game in their favor by "transferring" the wealth of his "fans" to his own chosen players. Barack Obama has pulled off several tactics from the socialist playbook on his home turf, including the "stimulus package" and the "health-care reform."
Will a real opposition team be organized and win this time around to defeat the socialist team? Stay tuned. The big game is coming up in November.
