Note that the US ‘Chamber of Commerce’ (not your average Kiwanis club but a big business lobbying organization) considers Ron Paul the lowest recommended House Rep, and conservatives De Mint, Sessions etc. to be similarly pariahs on the Senate side.
Big Business is CALLING for corporate welfare through governmental intervention. Conservatives are not.
But there are all these calls by Dems on this board to shovel over the grave of ‘free trade’ as if it were something big business wants at people’s expense.
INDIVIDUALS and SMALL BUSINESSES can only compete without suffocating, unnecessary regulation.
This isn’t Dems against Conservatives in my view, but mainstream America against the interventionist political class and the corporatists and collectivists who leach off us through our government.
Rasmussen has been tracking this and seems to agree.
What do you think?
I’m lazy, not so. Find a single monopoly that doesn’t have governmental preferences.
Of course big business does not want free trade. They just want to be the ones that write the rules. Do you really think Wally-Mart could have become the behemoth that it is without the game being slanted in their direction? Did you know that the third-longest non-military airstrip in the country, built with our tax dollars, is in the middle of nowhere, Arkansas.. for the express purpose of flying cargo jets to Japan filled with Tyson chicken, and then back full of electronics for Wally-world?
Free trade is a danger to the corporate pigs… which is why we need to fight for it with our very lives.
