Individuals shall have the right to interact and commence with companies that are providing products and services. This is fundamental in living in a society based on freedom and liberty irrespective of the choices of any individual or groups of individuals that may harm them in the short term or long term. Allowing entities that obtain structural advantages in the market place through illegal government fiat with trading methodologies that are then curtailed or completely removed from the individual or other group sector violates the very premise of the founding of our country and principles of freedom. These types of entities, although I fully admit can cause financial harm as well as financial advantages, offer no more risk than what has and will be seen in public pension and health care funding and packaging. Each individual shall be free to make their own financial decisions of investment instruments regardless of any individual or group of individuals success or failure.
