The good chap from New Jersey is no doubt a deeply religious individual. He or she puts his/her unwavering faith in the Holy Trinity of 'The free market', 'competition' and 'unregulated capitalism' as told by His Holy Profit.

Jesus Christ only practised physical violence once in His Ministry as far as I can find in the Bible, when He took a whip, overturned the money tables of the capitalists and free marketers of his day and threw them out of the Temple.

Believe me, to the extent that social policies have been practiced in America, it has saved your Country from going under long ago. It is a known fact that Cuban school children are better educated that their American counterparts.

The Reagan-Thatcher ideology, was the beginning of the end for America and the Washington consensus elite. I don't think your faith in 'Free Markets' is going to save your Country from impending disaster now.

As far as people in the former Soviet Union and China dying under those regimes, I believe you have confused socialism with communism. Far more people have been murdered and untold more destitute, throughout history under the guise of 'free markets' than any other ideology.

Rosa Luxemburg said it best back in 1915: "The choice facing humanity is one of socialism or barbarism." Almost one hundred years later our choice remains the same.
