Thats whats going on here. Its why both Democrats and Republicans claims are bullshit.

Dems say the Repubs are deregualting. Well they are, sort of. Only if you are a multinational corporation are you allowed to lobby for variances and loopholes. The rest of us are getting new regulations every single year. Which is ironic, because its all done in the name to protect the consumer, who is affected by the multinationals shortsightedness and greed. Yet the multinationals dont even get blinked at.

And the Republicans claim the Dems regulations are killing the economy. Well, that is partly true. The people have more rules than ever, and more taxes than ever (dont forget upcoming inflation). Try starting a business, especially one in a multinational arena (like a hardware store)...its a nightmare. But they dont do anything about the big guys. Go ask MF Global. And then ask the 100's of small banks that have been forced closed this past year. I would say ask the new banks that have opened this year, but applications are ZERO.

And thats how it always is with these two. They skirt the deeper issues and causes, and get the people to focus on talking points and party lines. Doesnt matter if its only half true, and everyone damn well knows it. Just keep repeating it.

Like Clinton going around still blaming Bush for the crash, never mentioning his GATT, NAFTA and GLass Steagall issues. Neither side wants to talk about those three, along with Bush's Onwership Society (as in, flood the market with cheap money). Because they were both in on it, and both made a fuckin ton of money for a lot of people with it.

Repeat After Me: "Im a human being god damn it!! My life has Value!!"

Thats called corporatism, and its way more popular with each party than liberalism or conservatism.

There's a reason why you NEVER hear corporatism or fascism in the MSM, the last thing they want is people investigating what THAT means.

Ralph Nader made a good point during a speech. He advises everyone to use the adjective, "corporate", before saying government.

We have a corporate government, we have to make sure that as many people as possible are aware, and refer to it that way. It's the definition of fascism but Americans are not ready to accept that fact yet, imo.

That's a pretty good idea. In fact, that's a good way to spread the message. Invariably, someone is going to ask you why you call it that and, bingo. Another potential convert.

In 45 months since taking office, Obama has created around 200k jobs net. Thats pathetic.

Perhaps we should be focused more on our own home than bombing poor people and debating what the capital of Israel is, and whether it should be official party platform.

Nobody wants to talk about all of Obama's Greenside traders/ traitors/ either. It's just different faces, the corruption marches on.
