    It makes me wonder about those individuals who identify with a certain ideolology.

    The difference is that I have the option to patronize a company that offers a good or service at a lower price or better product. With the govt there is no opt out option. We're left with shitty service and constant fleecing.

    I am going to bookmark this thread, and this post, just to rub your nose in it.

    The way your poll question is phrased is deliberately misleading. By a two to one margin people are more concerned about big government than they are about big business

    Your poll only asked people if they were concerned about them, not how concerned they were.

    If you think big business enabling is a partisan issue you haven't been paying attention to how the world works.

    If you can't see Pubs are more in bed with greedy, unethical big business/Wall St., you're blind. Teapot Dome, the Great Depressions, the S+L scandal...Deregulated cronyism, boom and bust and total small gov't/family values BULLSHYTTE while polluting and screwing the workers is their game. Pub dupes!!

    "more in bed" as if corruption can ever be quantified. Between LBJ and Obama alone the left have done more than their fair share of whoring out to big business. (R) and (D) partisanship is the vehicle of individual politicians while $ is the destination.

    Yep, Democrats don't do that, and when they do it is neither greedy nor unethical.

    I know, it is different, I just don't understand it because I am stupid and cling to guns and religion.
