"I've been thinking about the term 'capitalism' since Frank Luntz, the renowned pollster, told Republicans to quit saying it. The Occupy Wall Street movement has turned 'capitalism' into a dirty word, he said. If Republicans want to win in 2012, they'd better stop worrying and learn to love 'economic freedom' instead. It's a stunning turning of the tide. No matter the kind of conservative -- Southern, evangelical, libertarian, Tea Party, or old-school Rockefeller patrician -- conservatives have never hidden their allegiance to the moneyed class and power elite."
