    Our government isn't failing us and it can't be broken up less we have another civil war on our hands. Why don't you try going into the conpiracy forums with your rubbish?

    Where is the conspiracy in saying that our government is getting too damn big?

    Downsizing some of the extremely large corporations wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing. No one is talking about shutting them down, just splitting them up into separate entities that can each be profitable on their own. Many of these mega corporations are into so many things that they could easily be split up. And it certainly wouldn't effect the reasoning for someone to start a new business.

    At the same time, companies that could be split up would probably just move to using shared resources.

    You won't be able to sustain it if and when the biggies decide they want it. Unless you sell out to them they will take you out. Been there did that.

    Oh brother. It's the politicians that are saying the companies are too big to fail. Just imagine how many great car companies could be created if the government didn't use our tax dollars to bail-out poorly run companies? Spitzer is wrong. No company is too big to fail and the government shouldn't be in the business of breaking companies apart or bailing them out.

    If you start a new business and it gets into the "too big to fail" because it will bring down the whole economy mode, I'd think you're probably going to be in a pretty good way.
