According to most conservative ideologues these days, it seems... any attempt
by government aimed at regulation, accountability measures, or safeguards against the excesses and abuses of unfettered and completely "free market" capitalism are, well....by definition, communism. Communism, I say!
Of course, to such people... everyone who doesn't share their view of unrestrained and unchecked "free enterprise" is a communist. With such a black-and-white view of economics....hell, I suppose 85% of the country must be communist!
