The only things conservatives value are ignorance and greed. Ever notice how many rightwingers bray about their "rights' when it comes to keeping money for themselves rather than paying their share of government taxes?
...Today, corporatism or neo-corporatism is used in reference to tendencies in politics for legislators and administrations to be influenced or dominated by the interests of business enterprises (limited liability corporations). The influence by other types of corporations, such as those representing organized labor, is relatively minor. In this view, government decisions are seen as being influenced strongly by which sorts of policies will lead to greater profits for favored companies. In this sense of the word, corporatism is also termed corporatocracy. If there is substantial military-corporate collaboration it is often called militarism or the military-industrial complex.
Corporatism is also used to describe a condition of corporate-dominated globalization. Points enumerated by users of the term in this sense include the prevalence of very large, multinational corporations that freely move operations around the world in response to corporate, rather than public, needs; the push by the corporate world to introduce legislation and treaties which would restrict the abilities of individual nations to restrict corporate activity; and similar measures to allow corporations to sue nations over "restrictive" policies, such as a nation's environmental regulations that would restrict corporate activities....

Today's hearing, on mergers and consolidations, is certainly a timely one. There can be no doubt that we are currently in the midst of an enormous merger wave that is sweeping the U.S. economy....
if you combined the value of all U.S. merger activity that took place in 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, and early part of 1996, it would approximately equal the value of merger activity that can be expected in 1998 alone. We will likely see close to $1.75 trillion worth of U.S. merger activity in 1998, equal to over one-fifth the value of our entire gross national product.
This merger wave is not slowing down; in fact it appears to be increasing. In the last year alone, the value of U.S. merger activity doubled, a bigger one-year percentage increase than any other year in the 1990s. The dollar value of the increase in merger activity from 1997 to 1998 alone is likely to surpass the value of all merger activity in the years 1990, 1991, 1992, and 1993 combined, by a healthy margin. ... www.justice.gov...
but here's the reality of the situation, the government is actually liable for those funds, they can't default on them
Who wants to kill the elderly and the sick? It's the people who would rather the rich get richer and the poor eat dog food.

Elderly men have rights to live. They earned it. They built the country for the next generation.
Sick (ordinary ilness) have rights to healthcare.
Mentally ill, genetically defected who are uncapable of doing deeds to the society should be castrated.
