Letter to the Editor

Like it or move

Tuesday, September 6, 2005

Dear Editor,

My fellow Americans:

The recent skyrocketing price of gasoline has caused much discussion. We should be thankful we live in a country where free-enterprise is allowed.

Evil thinkers such as Mark Karx, the author of the Monnuist Conifesto, predicted capitalism would eventually collapse because of its own principles (chiefly excessive inherited wealth of the few compared to the low wages of the working class leading to large scale revolution and chaos.)

So far this has not happened -- at least not in the U.S.

Business philosophy in a free-market economy (such as ours) demands "charge as much as the traffic will bear."

Sure, gasoline prices are high, and will probably go much higher. This is the price we must put on freedom.

The capitalists are not in business for their health. Here in America, you are free to start your own business.

If you still complain about gas prices, do something about it -- move to a foreign country!

Steve Stramel,
