The Housing Market is foretold in this illustration... As Free Enterprise, our Constitution, and Capitalism, is misunderstood, perverted, and distorted, by the Social Progressives...(aka: Social Democrats)

"Liberty Tree" is referenced as, "in opposition." [Note] its gnarly branches (labeled: rights of man) & roots labeled envy, ambition, & disappointment.
Each rotten apple has an inscription: democracy, treason, slavery, etc.

In the background (just out of reach) is the "ruling Class" tree, called "Justice".. With branches of Law, inscribed: Freedom, Happiness, & Security.

We tasted of Freedom as Capitalists & entrepreneurs; and fed the world with knowledge, aid, quality, and evolution of technology...

-Government calls us, greedy Americans?
The Fed has been using our money to bail out foreign countries for years. here, here, here, here, here & here. -ZH. (more later)

FACT: Government intervention in Markets, drive up price, cause shortages, inflict rationing, induce slavery... While un-kept promises, guilt-trips, & manipulation; use the name of "greater good" as glue...
