    For some reasons he lacks the basic discernment to understand that regulations are laws put there to protect our individual freedom, that said there are good laws and regulations and bad ones, he needs to refine his protests to the specific laws he questions rather than his shotgun approach.

    That is probably not going to happen in a free market. This is the same as saying that if guns are legal everyone's gonna start killing each other.

    Healthcare is already rationed, even if you have the good insurance through a major employer.

    The question I asked is relevant. Ann Romney is 63 years old and probably uninsurable. Will a Medicare or any kind of healthcare voucher enable a person such as her to get comprehensive health insurance? How fortunate she is that her husband is wealthy, how unfortunate for those in similar circumstances who didn't think far enough ahead to marry strategically.

    Show your work, please.

    The free market of sending manufacturing jobs overseas where labor laws are quite different is the "free market" at work in the US to disemploy US workers. No tax break can compete with not having to pay a living wage to Americans while paying Indian children $2 a day to work in textile mills... which is actually a violation of Indian law which requires that you pay children $7 per day.

    I don't think the world should be held to US standards, but I do think that American businesses and workers should be held to US standards.

    How tragically stupid for those who didn't bother to prepare when they were young for the possibility that they may have medical issues when they get older. Good thing they have collectivist agitators who will try to make sure that they will somehow or another have their lack of personal responsibility subsidized at gunpoint, huh?

    It happens now, in the clothing and footwear business. Nike has been caught using child labor in the SE Asian factories that produce their $150 tennis shoes.

    Many clothing companies have their factories located in the Marianne Islands, where the workers are women from China who sign up at home, then find out once they get there that they are basically slaves. They are kept in locked factories and dorms, and guarded by men who sometimes rape them. If they become pregnant, they are forced to have abortions by their employers. The Avenue and The Limited use the factories there, and technically, the merchandise is "American Made" because the Marianne Islands are a US possession.

    I guess it works out well for the bottom-line profits, and we all know that profits are more important than ethics in today's world.

    You can have a free market- if you want to live under an aristocracy. Unbridled capitalism leads to monarchy. Monarchy leads to revolution. Lately, revolution takes the form of communism, theocratic dictatorship, or some sort of iron fist.

    The US and Europe are headed for a new wave of National Socialism. Believe it. It will happen. And people will whine that "It's like the NAZI's" but it won't be like the NAZI's. It will be a galvanization of the Euro-Sphere (which includes far flung places like Japan, South Korea, Australia, India, Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, US, Volkstaat, Israel, Kenya, and Canada) while eschewing the old fashioned definitions of race and nation. A master race defined by economics, culture, geographic strategy and utility rather than genealogy.
