I disagree. First, the Constitution and Bill of Rights define the parameters of drone use, not the "free" market. Second, in a society based on the rule of law there is no "free" market. As with drones, market parameters are defined by our founding documents. For example, during the Cold War, US multinationals were prohibited from outsourcing manufacturing to the Soviet Union even though labor costs in the U.S.S.R. were much lower. Why were US/USSR partnerships prohibited? Because the Communist ideology is a direct threat to our unalienable rights and gov't is obligated to secure our rights. So allowing US companies to form economic relationships beneficial to the Soviet Union would've been treason.
The terms "free market" and "free trade" are euphemisms for the principles of anarchy. Multinational corporations are, by definition, loyal to no country. Their directors and financiers have concocted the free market scheme as a means to crush the sovereignty of nation states. In particular, nation states like the U.S. which are based on the concept of equality before the law and individual liberties. That's why US multinationals have partnered up with Communist China's totalitarian regime and are redistributing Trillions of dollars of capital, technology and hard assets to China's ruling Communist Party.
Chinese State owned companies, financed by Wall Street, dominate all major industries in China and are acquiring Trillions of dollars of assets around the world, including America. Wall Street traitors are using Chinense State owned companies as a backdoor way to create a command and control economy in America. This should be obvious to liberty lovers like snakepit because Wall Street supports gun control, amnesty for illegals, Obamacare, lethal drone strikes on U.S. citizens, and their business model is based on systemic fraud. Their clever free market rhetoric is a slick PR campagin designed to promote their lawless world view, and they're using U.S. tax dollars (0% money from the Fed) to do it.
