    I've heard many right wingers say America needs to be run more like a corporation or we need to give more power to corporations to leave them "free to make jobs".

    Ignore the fact that American corporations are making the most profits in their entire history. Ignore the fact that they sit on trillions in capital because there is no demand since millions of American jobs have been outsourced to China from 2001 to 2008.

    You look at News Corp in Great Britain and you see what a corporation running a country is like. Hacked cell phones. Bribery. Scandal.

    I'm pretty sure the right wing doesn't have this in mind when they fantasize about how ultra capitalist and wonderful if only corporations were in charge. Well, they almost are. And if the right has it's way, they will be. Careful what you wish for. You might get it.:eusa_pray:

    Only 6% of rdingbat's posts are worth the time it takes to read them.

    This isn't one of them.

    The government is currently running our country.
    We can all see how that's working out.

    I think it's a rich blend of our Representatives being bought off by people with big money and then shilling for them on the Hill as opposed to for the people. Those people with big money run the Country.

    The current administration is fairly good evidence how a totalitarian would run the country.

    Which is precisely why im a limited government conservative. I retain my power. and not others.
