Most businesses and people are decent and honest, and conduct themselves with due propriety. There is a reason for the existence of government and laws, to establish law and order so that we may function better as a society. Calling for the punishment of businesses that fail to operate in an honest manner is completely legitimate. I have based my opinion on reason and logic, and offered examples and proof for the reason behind my beliefs, while you have concentrated on obfuscation and claimed superior knowledge, without having demonstrated such.
The con game that credit card companies practice, making grand offers up front while denying any realistic attempt to honor those promises in the fine print is simply wrong. By doing so, these banks profit from fooling the young and the desperate into making deals that they would not normally make. I see no reason to reward such deceptive practices with the force of government, and advocate change for this corrupt credit card system. I have posted my reasons, if you have any logical argument to dispute these reasons, please make them, as you have yet to do so.

I've got a great solution. A true Libertarian one too:
Deny banks the ability to use government to forcefully take personal property.
