Government=Big Corporations...Can anyone really disagree?

I feel that it is not just our federal government that has an issue with this, but all American Government in general is having a problem with this. I see the results of this every day and it is really upsetting.

  • The government is controlled by big business and the unions. Many politicians are tightly entangled with these entities. They supply the money that funds campaigns and solidifies election all in exchange for future favorable legislation.

  • When the government becomes intertwined with Big business, you have the formula for fascism. This is exactly what Mussolini did during WW2. It is a way for the special interests of Big business and the elected progressives to control the people and more importantly, control and redistribute the money to benefit their reelection while ensuring their partners in crime, Big business, is amply awarded with juicy contracts and other benefits. Cozy relationship and you see it personified with Obama and Immelt (GE).

  • There is absolutely a connection between government and big corporations ... Big Agriculture (Monsanto, Cargill) and the FDA,USDA,DEA; Big Pharma (Phizer, Merck. GlaxoSmithKline) and the FDA, CDC, and DEA; The US military and defense contractors like Boeing, Northrop Grumman, etc. who make money off of our so-called "war on terrorism," now we're going to have Big Medicine with the CDC, FDA, and IRS. Wall Street is tied up with the FED, the Treasury Dept and the IRS ....

    If you don't see the connection between Corporatism and our Big government, then you are blind!!!!

    If I may .... state controlled capitalism is also known as FASCISM. So when are going to start calling our politicians fascist instead of "progressive liberals or compassionate conservatives." It it walks, looks and sounds like a duck ...

  • minnesotanice no American Government is not just Federal Government...It also includes state, local, county...etc. Every one keeps complaining about the Feds, but its not just them that have corrupt politicians in the pockets of big business.
