Ok, so just search "Republican" in the bar at the top. You can clearly see this site is vastly made of of left wingers. Which is fine, it is what it is.
But when so many claim that the corporatism we have is a result of the right, they are only half way there. The left is just as guilty.
Conservatives want little regulation on business. They end up with zero for the multinationals, and way too much for the little guys.
Liberals want the gov to step in and correct things. They end up with the gov only stepping on the little guy, and instead partnering with the multi nationals.
Neither side is happy right now. Conservatives do NOT want the government joining forces with multinationals, distorting the free market, and picking winners and losers.
Liberals do NOT want multinationals to be given a free pass, and certainly dont want the gov partnering up with them to make them more powerful.
Each is to blame, for falling asleep at the wheel. Corporatism/Fascism is a perversion of each side, taking the worst aspects of it, and distorting it further for the top .01%. It is neither right or left, but it dominates both.
Examples: Conservatives passing Medicare Part D. Giving Big Pharma a huge handout. Gov partnering with a multinational, with no price controls.
Obamacare- a huge handout to insurance companies, with no price controls.
Oil subsidies- usually a right thing, but the Senate voting it down 51-47, thus further proving lobbyists run both parties.
Bank Bailouts- Huge handout to the banking cartel. Simply print a trillion and hand it over. Outrageous.
Corporate bailouts- more of the same. Some huge multinationals get the cash, others are stuck trying to work through it.
I really wish people here would wake up to the fact that BOTH sides are pissed at this corporatism.
