There are people who identify themselves as capitalists,and people who identify themselves as Americans. The marxist world view says there are only capitalists and socialists/communists. If you identify yourself as a capitalist, you are espousing a Marxian viewpoint. Call yourself an American and if its true, then you follow the American creed.
If you follow the American creed, then you know that you need to stand with your fellow Americans to help make America prosperous. Many people are telling you that a lot of Americans are out of work and suffering right now. But you have only your self interest in mind and the good of this country and the good of your fellow citizens are nothing to you. Americanism is not socialist. It was the reason that our founding fathers were willing to sacrifice everything, their self interest included a benign government and a people blessed with liberty. What is benign about trade policies that are wrenching America apart and redistributing our wealth by fiat of the WTO to other countries?
All the free traders are one dimensional characters. They talk of getting the cheapest price by using slave labor to produce it. There is nothing more to them.
