Stop calling it "The Free Market" because that's Right Wing spin [View all]

"Freedom" sounds good, doesn't it? Saying you are into "freedom" makes you sound good too.

The "Free Markets" sounds like a good thing too.

But ask yourself, what EXACTLY is the "Free Market" free of?

Regulations, or in other words - LAWS.

From now on, when someone says they support "The Free Market" correct them by saying they support "A Lawless Market".

Suddenly, they don't sound like such a "good guy" anymore. You've taken away their time tested, focus group talking point and white cowboy hat and made them the bad guy.

I hope this idea spreads far and wide.
