    Our parents of the 50's and 60's were anti-capitalists. Got it!

    Capitalism existed before Adam Smith. But yes, some of his ideas were anti-capitalist as well.

    calling any ideas of Adam Smith "anti-capitalist", is pretty damn silly.

    Not my parents or their parents or their parents were anti-Capitalist. Not everyone was Leftist hippies running around holding hands and throwing flowers.

    The "Oh Wow, Socialists?" movement?


    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
