Free North Carolina: Great post exculpating the supposed evil of capitalism

Free North Carolina: Great post exculpating the supposed evil of capitalismThe Constitution did not have to "mention capitalism". The term was not in common use then. The Constitution was devised to protect the rights of the individual by limiting the power of government, in contrast to the left's progressively accumulating government power at the expense of our rights. Individual freedom under the Constitution made our prosperity possible.

The government did not "give" land away 100 years ago; it allowed for the claiming of unowned land in an orderly manner. That was stopped at the beginning of the Progressive era when the unowned land in a large portion of the country, primarily the west, was put under permanent, socialist control of the government.
