On January 30, two-time Republican Party presidential hopeful Mitt Romney nixed a third go-around, telling supporters via teleconference that he can better serve America by supporting whomever the party chooses as its 2016 presidential nominee.

Kevin Carson: As I’ve said many times, if the “free market” meant what the capitalist apologists mean by it, I’d hate it myself.
Knapp: Barring the increasingly usual “hanging chad” dramas, the 2012 elections are over. Heave a sigh of relief, take stock of any likely minor changes, and get on with our lives, right? Wrong.
Jason Byas: Wayne Allyn Root is a capitalist evangelist, at least he got one thing right.

Carson: So now when you hear Mittens talk about “free enterprise,” you know what he means by it.
Knapp: Drilling leases on “public” land are just food stamps for Big Oil.
Kevin Carson: Afirma não confiar no governo. É, porém, ou estúpido ou mentiroso.

Carson: Who depends on whom?
Carson: The state is the instrument of armed force by which an economic ruling class extracts rents from the producing majority of a society.
Knapp: The difference between a free economy and an un-free economy IS government — i.e. top-down, hierarchic, uniform, centralized — regulation.
Carson: The only real way to achieve social justice is by bypassing the state.
It occurs to me that Mitt Romney, Barack Obama and I do, in fact, have one extremely significant thing in common …
David D’Amato on what goes up.
Jason Lee Byas: Who’s really dependent on government?
Knapp: They’re desperate. And they should be.
So 47% of Americans are members of Congress and/or the armed forces?
