Show-Me Tax Fighter 'Conservatives' Celebrating Season Of Crass Consumerism

In a rare misstep from a group of local policy analysts, their latest posts seems to worship the almighty dollar over the TRUE MEANING OF CHRISTMAS -- The sacred anniversary of Santa murdering the Easter bunny . . . Or some such . . . Anyhoo, here's their tribute to capitalism in praise of shopping that's also mostly subsidized by taxpayers via special districts often set up to provide merchants with bennies and breaks.

And let's not forget that Amazon has received more than $1 billion in tax breaks.

'Tis the Season . . . of Free-Market Activity!

The holiday shopping season is the perfect playground for market forces. Voluntary exchange for mutual benefit (in other words, shopping) is the driving force behind the market, allowing us to buy things that we can't produce ourselves.
