Your assignment, goshdarn, is to read "Economics in One Lesson" by Henry Hazlitt and "Basic Economics" by Thomas Sowell. After you have done that, get back to us.

The "capitalism" described in Das Kapital is a straw man, not a fair description of the way true economic freedom works. Remember, Marx is the one who coined the term, "Capitalism" !

The post mortems on the presidential campaign continue to pour in, the ones on the botched Romney effort the more interesting (and more depressing for those of us who supported him). President Obama was clearly vulnerable, and Mitt Romney clearly positioned to defeat him.

So what went wrong? Let me add my analysis. Three words: Message. Messenger. Messaging.

The messenger was flawed, unwilling to take risks, unprepared for the Obama political wrecking machine, left dazed and confused Election Night.

If inept messaging could be deemed a felony, this campaign was a crime against humanity. I've never seen...
