"It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the active. The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt." -- JP Curran, 1790

You say that's capitalism, I say that's compromise

Make no doubt, there are renewed and fervent efforts by those emboldened by our current predicament who seek to destroy capitalist ideals.

I find it hysterical to read articles like this one, published by A. Huffington in which they attribute this downturn to economic ideologies of the Bush administration these past few years and call them "laissez-faire". She calls this laissez-faire! I call it compromising of free market Capitalism.

Now I assume Ms. Huffington is intelligent enough to know the difference between true laissez-faire and our current interventionist model. These are the subversive tactics being employed to associate the economic recession with Bush, with market-oriented principles, with deregulation, and with Capitalism (with a capital C). The goal is to associate these things with the plight and pessimism in order to vanquish the favor towards free enterprise from the American psyche.

This isn't new, this isn't unique. Rather, this is seen as a great opportunity to shift towards socialist ideals. You see, Ms. Huffington and her colleagues are the Balph Eubank and Bertram Scudders of this world. They enjoy the lavish lifestyles and quality of life that Capitalism and the defense of freedom through the ages has made available to them while bashing these principles in hopes that future generations will not have to bear the burden of choice.

They are misreading the heart of the American spirit.
