Out of curiosity, would that mean our founding fathers were left-leaning? After all, they said we had the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Before you say that doesn't have economic consequences - it does. By giving all people the right to liberty, it effectively said slavery wasn't allowed. When this was finally put through (in emancipation) it had a HUGE negative impact on the southern 'producers'. No, I'm not saying business is bad, but it is amoral - it will do what it can get away with.
