Socialism and crony capitalism go hand in hand. The bigger the government the more crony the government. The more powerful a government the more likely it will be that corporations, unions, special interest groups, and individuals will want to buy it. You think corporations don’t like regulations? Au contraire mon frere. They often love them. Much more often than not. Heck, they often even write the regs themselves. Do you really think that General Electric wants a small government for instance? No way. But the “corporations don’t like regulations and big government” thing has fooled people for decades.
Anyway, some thoughts on socialism from my personal Facebook feed. I thought I’d share. Sorry “liberal” friends but you’re not going to like this one.
