    I say this often...but things are not going to change until we the people get fed up and stand up. There are more of us than them, but until the majority of us stand up against the small number of them, then they will keep doing what they are doing.

    I agree. A lot of folks who worship the "free market" think that big companies are some virtuous entities that do right or get punished. Once the companies figure out how to still make money but increasingly from the gov, not the economy then they are no longer free market bastions of reason and economic purity.

    Why be virtuous, and being punished is a freaking joke. Big corporations run the dang country, they buy the politicians and the politicians do their bidding. You have to be blind to not see that.

    I completely agree, but unfortunately I don't think enough people want to make whatever sacrifice that might entail.
    Countries with a comfortable middle class just don't make great environments for true change or revolution.

    "We" and "us" keep voting for these knuckleheads.

    A lot of the Rush Limbaugh et al types paint that as the battle. Its a 19th century view of capital vs labor.

    Since WW2 and the big gov expansion, increasingly major sectors of our economy have been exported by our government or have joined with big gov to stay alive and in some cases thrive. The grain economy is a huge example of this. There are many midwestern farmers and farm industry farmers that claim to be good republicans but are happily watching their fortunes rise with federal dollars.

    In the old view the insurance companies should be fighting tooth and nail against the fed gov expansion into the healthcare insurance industry. They put up some resistance but in the end it appears they will simply live to profit another day.

    This is socialism and i wish more politicians would plainly say that and the public would understand what it means.
