Les Leopold commits an egregious non sequitur with his post over at The Huffington when he claims those who support free markets must also support the current corporatist economy. He also adds a dash of strawman and a pinch of ad hominem to flavor his off-the-mark propositions. 
And he is wrong when he claims this Mises Institute article by Richard J. Maybury is a rewrite of history — the article is history, through and through.
But none of this is to say that Leopold missed completely. He correctly identified the source of our ills, he just got its name wrong. 
 The strawman and ad hominem arise when he posits an entity called the Tea Party. The Tea Party is nothing more than a movement of individuals whose political and economic views run the gamut from neocon statist to libertarian.
 The ill is the corporatist economy, which Leopold incorrectly calls the free market.
