Real Americans Defending Capitalism: Chef Tim Ziegler
Elective Decisions ^ | 04/20/09 | Chris Davis

Posted on 04/20/2009 4:37:10 PM PDT by writer33

Denver, CO—Capitalism is the best thing that has ever happened to any country in world history. It is responsible for creating America, the greatest country in the world—a country that produces more than any other. The individuals that drive that production are even more remarkable.

I consider myself lucky to even know a fraction of those individuals that drive America—those that believe and choose to participate in the capitalist system. Americans that make this country great by exercising their God given right to firmly grasp the concepts of capitalism.

For those who don’t know — or couldn’t guess from the article — Tim Ziegler is a FReeper. And a man well worth knowing.

When talking about capitalism and other economic systems, it should be pointed out that capitalism is the only *natural* economic system, all others, despite various arguments, are contrivances, which, with their failure, require a return to the natural way of economics.

I wish it werern’t so long. I think the point could’ve been made with less verbiage. I got the point a quarter of the way thru, but it was worth it to read the conclusion. Good article.

There are many, none of which are on my ping list, that wouldn’t get it a quarter of the way through. Besides, you get to enjoy the journey through Tim’s life as much as I did.

Thank you for reading. I do appreciate it.

It was a pleasure. Reminded me of how people were back in the day. There aren’t many people of this work ethic and focus on the customer like Tim anymore. Except my husband who is so much like Tim. Rags to riches (well not riches yet, but we’re hoping that our country’s capitalistic roots will survive til we get there).

Of course i hope that not only will capitalism survive but thrive and that the socialist path this country is on will come to an abrupt end and we begin to move back toward the old “good hard work will get you where you want to be” philosophy.

This word “Capitalism” really fails to describe what is going down. America isn’t capitalist, it’s free.

A free people excel at all they do because they do it by choice. When the choice disappears, the excellence goes with it. Karl Marx coined the term Capitalism in derrision, because he hated freedom. Why use his word?

Why use his word?

Probably because those that would participate would likely bow out because of fears they have at work if the term liberty was used or freedom. Although, your point is well made.

Excerpt from the piece:

“American Capitalism is about individuals and choice. We have the freedom as individuals in this country to choose something as simple as where we are going to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner.”

The article is not THAT long....and is well worth reading every word. Tnanks for posting it.

The Shrew is also a very generous man. As "Bahama Mama" I organized the famous freeper fund-raising Caribbean cruises. Tim was always there with donations of gift packages of exotic spices for us to use as table prizes.

Kudos to one of our own who exemplifies the American entrepeneurial spirit.

Another talented capitalistic Freeper. We have so many! I’ve been on a mini spice kick lately, and this article makes me appreciate even more the process involved in getting a product such as spices to market. Thanks for the article.

Chris,

Thank you for the article and your extremely kind appraisal. I have been so swamped with work and teaching classes this week I haven't had the time to thank you and all the Freepers for the very kind comments.

Kindest regards,

TS
