Stossel is Perplexed at McCain

Thanks to Myrhaf for pointing to a fantastic article, "Does McCain Understand Markets?" by John Stossel discussing my favorite topic, the free market, or at least why a supposedly pro-free market candidate seem to put down the free markets constantly, and the "dreaded" speculator. I love Stossel, calm, cool, collected - just parsing McCain's words and showing him for what he is, as great a collectivist as socialist Obama.

Obama wants us to sacrifice for the poor and disenfranchised. McCain wants us to sacrifice for something "greater than ourselves" - I assume that means the state. Both think personal success, and independent, self-interested action is morally suspect.

Great article!
