Big Government is only as big as the corporate elite make it. The United States government is the best government big money can buy! Forget about Left vs. Right, Government is owned, run and paid for by corporate America thank to electioneering contributions.
Why do you think Democratic or Republican administrations put ex-corporate CEOs and Fortune 700 business giants into postions of authority for all of its beaurocratic Departments. Government is created by the corporate masters to do its dirty work, passing well-disguised legislation to benefit the rich at the little man's expense, and to also give us—the American people—the illusion of a party vs. party system of democracy. A dog and pony show the puppeteer puts on while controlling both Left and Right with its dueling Big Government ideologies. A man and his politics isn't much different than a dog and her groom. Both relationships require trust and obedience.Despite all the boastful chatter about the job creators, it seems worthy to note of this ponzi math problem that with each generation the uber wealthy cartel are the real threat to human decency, freedom, liberty and democracies everywhere. The super rich want to combine Capitalism and Socialism to create an American Plutocracy, an oligarchy run by the wealthiest segements who pass legislation beneficial only to them and their corporation that all the rest of us must endure and live meager lives to support. And why should they not? Given that self-interest is the less than pliant mantra of all that is big capitalism? Unchecked power accumulation (and its objective wealth) has always been the salient flaw in Ayn Rand's capitalistic Objectivist philosophy.
Rarely in the best interest of the struggling masses, despite Rand's insistance that the worker has a level playing field in dealing with the bosses. The honest Objectivist is as much a myth as the Barry Bonds home run record. Both require an asterisk. In fact, Raw Objectivism, Big Capitalism, Communist Fascism bare little resemblance to freedom or democracy for those remaining taskless in the outskirts of civil decency with nothing of their own but earnest desires to fend and toil for themselves on an empty field. That's the very definition of irresponsible winning.
Yet, scanning a Democracy, a Republic or a pure Autocratic Totalitarian state, one thing can be counted on as certain. The men with the money are always wrapped in a flag and deemed democratically free, and are without restraint to continue their plundering and amassing.
All of the above can be said and BE TRUE without giving up on Tea Party values.
This realization makes a patriotic American very sad. I say let's annoint Newt Ginginch, Allen West, John Bolten, Marco Rubio, Sarah Palin and others to the awful task of rebuilding our nation, a reproof to what the generations of corrupt self-indulgent politicians have wrought upon us...
