    It is necessary to change leadership on a regular basis, this allows for the disruption of systems of patronage that take years to develop, and the resultant increase in efficiency that the lowered corruption makes possible. Singh’s ranting about Modi, is more about this house cleaning than about Modi’s qualifications for the job. Power corrupts and the Congress party has been in power for a long time and is clearly very corrupt.

    India needs foreign investors to come in and build them new modern efficient factories as was done in China. The fact that the Congress Party was so greedy and corrupt, that even India’s low cost labor couldn’t entice foreign investors, says everything you need to know about why they need to go.

      you are right, and we could use some of the same medicine at home.

      Don’t forget that they have banned private ownership of gold at a time when they are debasing their currency. Currency debauchers always hate gold.

    The problem is that Congress smells more like a dynasty than a party.
