Capitalism is economic and social justice

Remember Bill Ayers? He's the unrepentant 60s radical that ran with The Weather Underground - bombing government buildings and police stations. He now lives in Chicago, working as an educator in higher learning. President Obama announced his 2008 run for the presidency from Ayers' living room.

In an interview last March 30, Ayers said "I get up every morning and think, today I'm going to make a difference. Today I'm going to end capitalism. Today I'm going to make a revolution."

Before Marxist radicals and revolutionaries with willing ears in the White House put an end to capitalism, the rest of us better know what capitalism is.

Capitalism is the economic expression of liberty.

Let me be clear - capitalism is NOT the economic freedom to do anything you want. Liberty does not mean license. It means the exercise of Christian forbearance. This means:

Capitalism is God-given, inalienable, individual Rights.

Capitalism is the right to life.

Capitalism is individual worth.

Capitalism is the right to pursuit of happiness.

Capitalism is the right to private property.

Capitalism is free speech.

Capitalism is free religious belief and exercise.

Capitalism is the right to arms and self-protection.

Capitalism is security in individual privacy from government intrusion.

Capitalism is limited government.

Ultimately, capitalism is economic and social justice. Rewards are a direct result of combining three ingredients: The talent, preparation and effort of the individual; the opportunity for fair competition and the approval of willing consumers.

Ending capitalism means the end of the individual and liberty. Without capitalism, our consumer-driven demand market will be dumped for a government-driven command economy. When "the good of the many outweighs the good of the few," say goodbye to individual rights, peace and prosperity.

If you hate liberty that much, then by all means, end capitalism.
