Bush Abandons Free Market to Save Free Market

That’s right folks, we have another Bushism on our hands.  It seems the old boy is getting a little more dim witted as his last few days in office fly by.  Big Dog makes a great observation about this:

“President Bush says that he abandoned free market principles to save the economy. He is only partly right. Free market principles were abandoned a long time ago. He is only doing more of the same of what has been going on and it will not help one bit. George Bush is using Socialism to try and fix a free market system when Socialism caused the problem.”

I agree wholeheartedly.  For over 150 years, there has been an unholy alliance of government and business.  Jefferson’s dream of laisse faire pretty much died with him I think.  Mercantilism took its place, and when Socialism became fashionable FDR gladly steered us in that direction.  Now we’ve got Mercantilism AND Socialism.  This recession we’re in now is the free market trying to reassert itself, and it WILL win eventually.  All Bush can do with his Socialism is put off the inevitable and make it worse.  The free market tells you which car companies should be open for business, it tells you which banks or investment firms are sound, and it tells you what real money is.  All we need to do is listen to the free market, and we can return to an economy of real prosperity.
