Somebody doesnt seem to understand that government is a corporation.
Assuming one is somehow more altruistic than the other is pretty naive.
They both want the same thing: wealth and strength.
Those statements are so absurd I'll just keep it quick.
"The government" is not a corporation, corporations ( and members of the government ) make money FROM corporations. The government does not exist
to make a profit.
Can you agree at least that we need a government?
Government, however flawed is civilization.
Do you mantain that "the government" does nothing at all for the public good? nothing?
What public good do corporations do? Provide goods and services to the public for a price, and distribute some profits to shareholders. Fine.I am
a sharholder in numerous corporations.
The question is how much profit is enough, when does the pursuit of profit become damaging to the public.
Some good ideas for reform were presented here, but the Republicans are presenting NO IDEAS AT ALL! None.
The "debate" in Washington is not over health care, or public good, but SOLEY ON WHERE THE MONEY GOES.
Funny how ATS seems to have a big influx of far right wingers since Obama was elected isn't it. Makes me yearn for the Reptlian posts.
