America became the greatest superpower in the world due to a capitalist free market economy and a constitutional republic. We accept all cultures from all nations and have the strongest military in the world.

With Socialism, you get Greece.

Now you can drone on all those lib talking points that CNNMSNBCABC media throw at you, but you won't admit what I stated is true since liberalism is shrouded in keeping people down, ill-informed, and in denial.

Reminds me of a joke about Swarm Intelligence.... and how it could fix anything. But this forgets 2 simple truths.

1) The swarm is not intelligent
2) The swarm is lazy

That is why government always needs to be meddling. Without meddling, customers (as a mass of people) would be brain-dead zombies, quite literally. Joss Whedon did a nice spot recently about exactly that ;p -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6TiXUF9xbTo

While this will seem like an anti-Apple rant, you have to realize that from what i recall, Apple was the biggest pusher to make it illegal to jail break smartphones. And so its things like this you have to consider when you buy stuff. Not only are you buying a device that you say has the ideals you want to support, but the companies actions you support as well. Something to consider the next time you look at devices to buy.

Well you got it 100% correct. Consumers need to decide which companies deserve their hard earned cash.

Gov't needs to stick to defense, education, and upholding the laws. Leave businesses to people -- Gov't is the worst piss poorly managed clusterfuck of a business around, deficit aside even.

Yeah, we can see how well that sort of mentality always works out with Wall Street, the banks, etc. Yet in all these "socialist" oriented democracies they never have these problems.

Ya do that, great way for open platforms to continue to gain while people laugh at the proprietary crap.

When you allow corporations free reign to buy influence in government, this is the result. You get rulings that favor corporations over consumers. Like Mitt said, "Corporations are people, my friend." If you want more of this more quickly, vote Mitt.

I'm just going to toss this in here and run.

It's difficult to prove any free market "corps BUYING govt influence", truth is govt will jump at "influencing" as much as it can - it is a giant poorly managed business, especially in the hand of democrats.

It's easy to prove Govt having TOTAL INFLUENCE on majority democratic votes based on being bought. Unions, etc...
