An example of how Freedom can WIN. In 40 States now, retailers are allowed to add up to a 4% service charge to transactions using a credit card (actually retailers have already upped the prices of products to cover for credit card companies service). Well, when a customer gets to checkout, ask if he/she will be charged extra if using a credit card. If it's Yes, ask to speak with the person in charge; if the charge is not waived, then take your business elsewhere and leave your (hopefully full) cart and let the store put your cart's products away. If enough customers do this, the retailers will stop and even if they up their prices again, the customer still has the power of choosing a local competitor.
