Recommended Posts

A Liberal is someone who fully believes in...

Individual liberty

The Constitution

Peace

American Capitalism as the founders intended

A small federal government that is just a tool of We the People

And a Liberal is Nationalistic

 

That's what a liberal is

Many try to use the name

Those who don't meet the criteria are NOT liberals

True, the term capitalism was not in much use in those days. But the Founders clearly supported the principle of economic liberty on which it rests. They clearly understood that property rights and free markets are essential. They clearly believed that government has a responsibility to uphold contracts, eliminate trade barriers, and protect property rights ... all of which are part of the capitalist system.

That's just honoring contracts. Where did they discuss eliminating trade barriers?

Where did they discuss eliminating trade barriers?

The Constitution created the largest contiguous area of free trade in the world at the time. The Constitution says that neither the states nor Congress can levy taxes on the interstate movement of goods which the states had been theoretically able to do prior to the adoption of the Constitution. Now I'm not saying the Founders were all for no trade barriers with other countries. They did support tariffs and the idea of protecting US industry from foreign domination ... as well as keeping US industry here. Much like Trump.

Trump only cares about his personal profit. That's capitalism.

You don't know that.

 

In fact, the safe thing from the standpoint of profit would have been to stay out of the race and join with all the fat cat 1% who backed Hillary.

 

As is, now he's got a ton of snowflakes boycotting his *products*, vandalizing and threatening to burn down his buildings, and even threatening his life.

But capitalism is about making money for oneself. I thought that's the value you were advocating.
