When you put some data to your sloganeering. All you have done is string some buzz words along without backing up anything. You make sophmoric attempts are conspiracy innuendos. C'mon, give some facts about the free market and competition.

By what mechanism does free market and competition prevent consolidation of power?

I'd rather be a smartass than a dumbass, personally.

(feel free to slap me silly if I've used that here before, I have a sneaking suspicion that I have)

I would much rather have real free enterprise
what we have going now maybe called facism

We need to have more private control of business
we need to have more means of production to be controlled privately.

More privately owned business and production is good.

Not neccesarily, it leads to lobbyists perverting the political system.

I don't get you. In some threads, you advocate that we implement tariffs to protect American workers and their jobs, yet in other threads, you promote even more private control of business which, in case you didn't notice, is the source of our outsourcing problems. So do you actually want to protect the American worker's job, or is that just a talking point?

The reason I'm asking is because you only come off as wanting to "protect" jobs occasionally. So are you more concerned about protecting American jobs, or achieving your idealistic goals?

Well I just think it's a weird dichotomy to draw.

Why do you think it is weird? the dichotomy or the assumption that there is a dichotomy?

The idea that there is a dichotomy, I don't believe the two are mutually exclusive.
