Or do you think that there should be absolutely no regulation on businesses? Are we missing the boat on keeping kids in school and out of factories? Should we allow tainted meat to be sold?

No. I believe that cutting red tape would greatly help ease the burdens on business and help stimulate the economy.

What I don't support is protecting the jobs of a few at the expense of everyone else in the country.

Protectionism is and always has been leftist and contrary to the principle of free enterprise.

Read Chernow's book on Alexander Hamilton. Protectionism is part and parcel of how America changed from a Third World nation to a world player. Do you truly argue that Hamilton was a leftist?
