    Linda numbers wouldn't like it cause you can't capitalize American, she might let you hyphenate it.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Oooh, never thought about a hyphen. I was thinking to use a colon or even a semi colon!

    Actually Mercantilism goes back further than that. Goes back centuries. It's the cornerstone of imperialism. Spain practiced a very simplistic form, France more advanced, and England the most advanced of the three major colonial powers. The theory is obviously a crock of shit regardless of how advanced it is.

    Oh, and Mercantlism=/= Capitalism. They're actually at odds with each other. Also the United States was never a fully capitalist nation, we were closest in the 19th Century though.

    Also I'm not from Hell, I've merely taken up residence in it. I'm from Northwest Indiana.

    And I'm sorry for being wordy. I must like the sound of my words...

    Yes I also have "A Patriot's History..." excellent book!

    Do we hyphenate antiamericanism or go with it as is?

    Hyphenate, because you do need to capitalize America.

    Thank you!

    Also I'm not ashamed to say that I've had my doubts as a Conservative. But when a person tells me that China could easily invade the United States I get back on track!
