If you care about preserving the greatness and prosperity of this country, its high time we start standing up for the principles of free market capitalism that has generated the highest standard of living for the highest numbers of people that recorded history has ever witnessed. America is the greatest nation on earth because we stand on principles of economic freedom: free markets, free trade, and equality of opportunity.
I am so fed up with all these attacks on capitalism these days, that arise out of nothing more than a pathetic attempt to harness class envy to redistribute wealth as one sees fit. If the free market is not setting the boundries of wealth creation and distribution--who, may I ask, is so angelic and pure to be dividing the hard-earned fruits of my labor among the masses to accomplish some notion of economic "fairness". I'm not trying to spend anyone else's money , just trying to live in a country where my hard work is respected, honored, and the wealthy are rightfully respected for their hard work, success, and given their due for bringing to the market a good or service that society values. Wealth is created, not simply spread around. Our country needs to do a little soul searching and get back to the basics. We need another Milton Friedman today.
