FREE MARKET VS FREE TRADE AND CARTELLING
The United States was founded as a free-market capitalist society. Once since then, monopolistic special interests bought out politicians to pass their personal gains into law to the point of producing mass economic devastation. Exceptions for bribery, the governed being locked out of their own consent, the mass outsourcing of labor opportunity to immigrant program workers and now overseas, the importation of price-dumping crap goods, and other categorical attacks on economic common sense sound familiar. A free market is defined as one where everyone has the freedom to compete, not just the biggest competitors. In order to protect the rights of small businesses and the working poor, the founders gave the Congress overtly broad power to "regulate commerce," and reformers since then made antitrust laws after the gilded age. Unfortunately, the Congress uses these powers to stack the deck for special interests far more often, for the opposite of what they are written to do, so that power is clearly too broad. Our ruling class has written so many special interest laws that they have almost repealed the American dream by making it next to impossible to move up in the world or even earn a decent living in many places without insider connections. The richest among us will turn our country into the third world before ever investing back into everyone who made their success possible. Even college degrees are becoming too bottlenecked with special-interest sciences for graduates to obtain stable employment, and they are more like a tuition-debt cartel scheme to perpetuate impoverishment and peer review real misinformation. The extremely lopsided, unlawful nature of our laws today have produced unconstitutional titles of inherited nobility while the rest of us are doing all the footwork for these worldwide, billion-dollar industrial headworks. Privately raising wages entitles businesses to write-offs, and yet so many global companies produce the harm that is a result when profit margins are not offset, all of that money is removed from the circular flow of our economy, and then the government makes incomplete wage-floor laws without offsets for small businesses instead. Regardless of any oversimplifications from either side, the economic impacts of our boundless free trade economy, where antitrust laws are enforced backwardly on small businesses if at all and politicians carelessly play with monetary policy, have reached a new "serf-economy nobility," gilded-age level, so we must reinforce a free-market economy.
