Capitalism vs. Socialism: A Story of Two Family Relics
American Thinker ^ | September 15, 2018 | Gary Gindler

The history of the first document dates back to the beginning of the 18th century. The scene is a North American colony called the Province of New York. For his services to Great Britain, a German nobleman received land from King George II in the royal colony of New York. The area was large, but subsequent generations quietly sold it piece by piece. This family of new settlers supported the colonists, not King George III, in the Revolutionary War. This allowed the ownership of the land to be preserved after the war. Now my good friend owns this land (or rather, the small piece that remains). He, like his ancestors spanning eight generations, is an American patriot.

Recently, there was a problem with the issue of land ownership in the state of New York. Without going into details of the territorial dispute court case, I will dwell on its essence. My friend did not have any official documents issued by the state of New York that would confirm his right to own said land. So he brought to court the only thing he had: an old family relic – a fragile parchment scroll signed by the British monarch.

The American judge, having examined the parchment, ruled that the heir to the German nobleman be the only legitimate owner of the land, granted to his ancestors by King George II long before the establishment of the United States of America.

While documentation is critical in a civil society it holds less esteem among corrupt officials. My family of patriots going back to the Jamestown colony on both sides has many lurid stories to tell of corrupt officialdom perpetrating their atrocities upon our venerable heads.

See the Hayek quote on my FR profile page. 3rd one down, 2 paragraphs. Hayek said much the same in the 1940s.

Capitalism FREEDOM vs. Socialism: A Story of Two Family Relics

The Right needs to quit using Lying Leftist terms. "Capitalism" is a Marxist term for what is really the Free Market Economy, the greatest, most powerful wealth-producing economic system in the world and government has NOTHING to do with it.

The outcome of this year's elections is more important than ever

This apparent hyperbole is not hyperbole. From now on every election us the Most Important Ever because in 2016 we reached the point that the Left only has to win once, then the competition, at least electorally, ceases.
