Hah! Capitalism trumps you!

I was in a play-argument with someone who brought up capitalism to beat my point, and had me whipped. Capitalism totally trumped my argument, I said. It's the big trump card. Then I realized: hey, a card game based on an intellectual argument. Brilliant! You could have the Bad Analogy card, the Noam Chomsky Reference card, the Derisive Laughter, the False Dichotomy, the Called Bluff, and of course, the Hitler/Reagan card. The last would earn either an instant victory or an instant defeat, as in all arguments.

Obviously, I would have to carry a set in my pocket, so I could be Meta-Rowan-Argumentron.
