    I am elitist in several ways. But that's neither here nor there. I took it from the horses mouth.

And it's causing severe problems including the death of free market capitalism.

    Government interference in the free markets is what is killing free market capitalism.

    Liberals limiting government force? Now, that, is an oxymoron.

    Over regulation by the government (in essence what is promoted and proliferated through Corporate Capitalism), certainly can and will kill the free market. Which is why proper regulation must be sought.
