    Keep in mind I am specifically talking about big corporations like Monsanto and Wal-Mart, not capitalism in general.

    You're asking about crony capitalism I assume. No corporation nor any union can engage in cronyism without a meddling, big government politician on the other side of the equation. If government were to stay within the confines of the Constitution, cronyism would be nearly non-existent.

    Therefore, I would add a fourth choice to your poll: "Neither - it's government that is corrupt"

    Yea, I think they can buy the DC clowns and write the policies that protect the wealthy and hurt the 99% Remember "only little people pay taxes"

    Corruption is a function of poor governance, and our public officials are probably more corrupt that either side.
