“Capitalism is about voluntary exchange for mutual benefit.  Businesses don’t “take” money.  Only government (which has a monopoly on the legal use of force) and criminals do that.  Businesses merely collect the money that consumers and other businesses voluntarily trade for products and services.” –Alex Green           May I emphasize the word VOLUNTARY!  When government forces, or even provides an incentive for, someone to purchase a certain product, it no longer becomes the voluntary choice of a citizen; thus it is no longer a “free” market.
