"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

Competition and Free Markets = Capitalism

Some state legislators are attempting to circumvent expansion of Wal-Mart into communities. Voters by referendum should make these decisions not over zealous legislators with personal agendas and socialist biased. America works best on innovation and free market enterprise. If you can't innovate and compete you die. USA Today has it right. "If legislators think workers deserve more pay or benefits, they can pass new minimum wage laws, make union organizing easier or mandate benefits for all employers. Singling out one company solely to help competitors is a mistake. Wal-Mart may not be everyone's favorite neighbor, but starting with one store in Arkansas in 1962, it became the world's largest retailer by meeting customers' needs. Rather than demand special protection, Wal-Mart's competitors need to figure out how to exploit its weaknesses or imitate its success."
