Reason: Democrats Are Champions of the Free Market

Conservatives try to hide the fact that labels have changed and the major differences between liberals and conservatives are no longer over economics as in the past, but over liberty versus authoritarianism and acceptance of science and reality versus faith. Conservatives claim Democrats are far greater supporters of big government than is now true, and ignore their own anti-capitalist views. The policies of government collusion between business and government supported by Republicans destroy their claims to be supporters of the free market.

Reason has even found an example where they describe Democrats as champions of the free market–not something I’d expect to see there. In discussing immigration policy, Jacob Sullum writes, “In the debate over the immigration bill, left-liberal Democrats are emerging as champions of the free market.”
