Americans For Capitalism We look promote free market capitalism by identifying its real life applications, despite the influx of anti-capitalistic rhetoric in media and government.

THE MISLEADING CLAIM: Mother works over 70 hours and was only paid $9.

THE REALITY:

- It’s true she worked 70.80 hours over 2 weeks.

- She is paid a wage of $2.13 an hour PLUS her tips, and her employer must make up the difference any time the addition of her tips falls below the state’s minimum wage of $7.25 an hour, so she is ALWAYS paid AT LEAST $7.25, not $2.13.

- She claims to have earned only $9.28, but she was ACTUALLY paid $150.81 in wages plus an additional $708 in tips, for a total of $858.81.

- If you subtract $53.25 for social security, $12.45 for Medicare, $75.83 for taxes, her take home pay was actually $717.28, not $9.28.

- Her average hourly rate ended up being $12.13, far above the minimum wage.

Obamacare deprived tens of millions of Americans of health care, by taking away their insurance plans and increasing their premiums and deductibles so high that even if they could get new insurance, they didn't have enough left over to get treatment.
Exactly as planned.

Bidencare will make that even worse.
Exactly as planned.

In the debate, Biden repeated what fact checkers called THE LIE OF THE YEAR, the claim that you could keep your health insurance under Obamacare.
And then extended that lie to his arrogantly-named Bidencare.
Millions lost their health insurance and doctors under Obamacare, and this was KNOWN by Obama, Biden, and their corporate cronies ahead of time.

You can thank the state for the miserable service of every kind of monopoly.

High prices and low quality FTL.

If the politicians didn't set up monopolies for their cronies, our lives would be so much better.

Cable, land line phone, electricity, the postal service...they ban all other monopolies as universally evil, EXCEPT the ones they mandate to make their friends and family rich.

Burying lines would eliminate most power failures. Flooding can take out poorly protected buried lines, but that is far more rare.

Millions of people have gone without power thanks to the hurricanes during this rare peak season. It would have been a fraction as many, if not for the power company monopoly.

In a free market, there is always competition. It's state barriers to new companies that make an industry into an oligopoly or monopoly. Standard Oil's dominance was created by price controls in the 19th century. AT&T was a monopoly purely because it was mandated as one like the power company.

In the 1990s, AOL was flooded with new customers because they added an Internet portal. If they were a monopoly, people would just have suffered long delays for years. But because you could go through Mindspring or Compuserve, AOL spent over a billion dollars adding new lines. A billion dollars that came even as AOL's prices were falling.

That's how the free market works.

But a power company is a monopoly. They, if anything, intentionally fail their customers and waste money, so that they can complain to the state that they need to raise prices or steal taxpayer money through government subsidies.

Today's Hero of Liberty is still out there fighting for our freedom.

John Frank Stossel started out as one of those consumer advocates who calls for state intervention in your choices.

But he's a rare example of a journalist who is honest and smart enough to realize when he's wrong, and change.

In his own words:

"I started out by viewing the marketplace as a cruel place, where you need intervention by government and lawyers to protect people.

"But after watching the regulators work, I have come to believe that markets are magical and the best protectors of the consumer.

"It is my job to explain the beauties of the free market."

Having turned over a new leaf, John used his journalistic expertise to carry the message of freedom and community to generations of new people.

John Stossel's Dank Meme 'Stache

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Stossel

"What private property does is connect effort to reward,
creating an incentive for people to produce more.

"Then, if there's a free market,
people will trade their surpluses to each other for the things they lack.

"Mutual exchange for mutual benefit makes the community richer."
— The Tragedy of the Commons

"I'm a little embarrassed about how long it took me to see the folly of most government intervention. It was probably 15 years before I really woke up to the fact that almost everything government attempts to do, it makes worse."

"I suppose beat reporters who cover people like Babbitt and Gephardt are reluctant to offend because they may need the powerful people’s cooperation tomorrow. I didn’t worry about cooperation tomorrow, so I kept offending people today."

In Common Sense, Thomas Paine laid out the conditions under which it's reasonable to oppose a corrupt and authoritarian government.

With the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson agreed. He and Paine affirmed John Locke's recognition: That when the state tries to impose extreme restrictions on the People, they have a right to rise up and refuse, stripping it of the authority it is abusing.

This is as true today, as it was back then. The complaints listed 246 years ago today apply just as much now, in their own way, with a long list of new ones added.

Testing for Fevers Can Actually Make the Problem Worse
https://abcnews.go.com/Health/screening-fevers-catch-coronavirus-cases/story?id=70199490
"But some experts say checking for fevers is unreliable and, on its own, could even be deceiving as means of determining who is or is not infected with the disease."

The ACLU points out that it's a police state violation of your right to privacy:
https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/19/health/coronavirus-aclu-fever.html
"A report by the civil liberties group contends that reliance on thermal cameras and temperature-sensing guns to resume work at factories and offices and to encourage travel is flawed and intrusive."

In the US, only perhaps 10% of people have been infected with SARS-CoV-2, but about 100% of Americans have a fever from the common cold each year, and tens of millions have one from the flu, an infected cut on their thumb or elsewhere, non-infectious conditions that cause inflammation, as a side effect of drug treatment, or even from cancer and vaccines.

https://www.webmd.com/first-aid/fevers-causes-symptoms-treatments#2

Meanwhile, nine out of ten people infected with SARS-CoV-2 (irresponsibly called by bureaucrats "coronavirus", a term that includes the common cold) NEVER have a fever, in fact never get sick in any noticable way:

I have a personal request to all those who follow. Would you please consider donating to my niece's GoFundMe so that she can continue to get her seizure meds during this crisis? Without work, they've been unable to get her meds and the government insurance options don't cover it because they won't cover compounding. My niece is a wonderful child whose unfortunately been in and out of the hospital several times due to these seizures. When she has her medication, she is able to live a normal life. Sorry for the public appeal, but I'm just trying to help her any way I can.

Thank you all.
