Originally published at; defends the free market and individual liberty, quoting among others Bastiat, Thomas Jefferson, David and Milton Friedman, John Lott, Isabel Paterson, Proudhon, Adam Smith, Sowell, John Stossel and Walter Williams

Heartless monopolies. A ruthless Wall Street fleecing a helpless Main Street. Baloney ... [S]omeday people will talk about us ... Your grandchildren will say you took a courageous stand for humanity. You shared the vision of a cooperative, kind, safe, abundant, tolerant world. And you made it happen. You restrained the visible fist of tyranny. You untied the invisible hand of liberty.
