    I couldn't care less. What matters is that the majority decides the policy direction of our country.

    I believe in capitalism. The principles of capitalism is not possible with things like minimum wage on the market.

    And I wasn't questioning your intelligence. That assumes there is doubt about it.

    when the extreme left cannot proffer a logical argument they fall back on quantity trumping quality

    mob rule is what "liberalism" is all about

    The US has never operated under pure capitalism because it is not practical. What you are describing is a libertarian utopia, which does not exist anywhere on the planet.

    And I wasn't questioning your intelligence.
    Yeah, right:

    I liked the constitutional republic that we originally had. the one that wasn't good enough for power hungry leftwing robber barons who used the crisis of the 1930s to piss on the constitution and the tenth amendment.

    appealing to the lowest common denominator might win elections for the dems and make their greedy masters rich but it only deteriorates the nation

    Turtle when you cannot proffer a logical argument you just play everything off as lies without even explaining how they are lies..
