Letter: Capitalism, not socialism, made US great

The Herald Bulletin

---- — I saw the actor Brad Pitt on a talk show recently and he spoke to the audience about our future by saying, "I've been to socialist countries and we are going to be OK." He then gave the 'OK' sign with his fingers. What he fails to realize, as with so many other liberals, is that it is not socialism that made our country great — it is capitalism.

If he is so looking forward to becoming a socialist, then why not just move to a socialist country and leave our country alone?
