From Rasmussen:

Americans still put a lot more faith in the private sector than in government when it comes to making the economy work.

Seventy percent (70%) of American Adults think a free market economy is better than one managed by the government. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only 15% believe a government-managed economy is better. Fourteen percent (14%) are undecided.

exactly. So they need to stop picking winners by way of corporate welfare and write-offs. They need to cut out all lobbying because the ma and pa shops cannot afford a lobbyist. I agree, we need to end the interference of big money that tilts markets from free to favored.

This is a result that greatly depends on how it is presented to the questioner, and likely ignores the enormous debt on principles to the Native Americans.

Education in the field of economics is nearly completely absent from grammar school through high school and how many college students get past ECO 101?

When we finish destroying education these types will die out. Our generation already put compete faith in our government masters, they will provide for us!
