A "free" market is the purest form of democracy. It allows the People to "vote" with their dollars to support (or not support) the companies they like (or dislike). Almost once a month I get a call from Comcast asking if I'd like to sign-up for television and every time I say, "Spend almost 1000 a year for a company that sucks? Hell no." (click). That is true power... the power to say no. It's democracy in action.
Opposition to a free market is what corporations want (they desire monopoly). A monopoly takes away choice. Opposition to a free market is opposition to Power for the People and the liberty to choose which companies they want to support.
Disclaimer - I support free trade inside the U.S. Not with other countries like Socialist China that treat workers like cattle. Goods from factories that break the law (such as making people work 100 hours of overtime when the legal limit is 36/month) should be blocked from entering the USA.
