Why? What would make you think a smaller court, with even less political strength than the Federal Government could regulate a major corporation if
the EPA cant? Again, citing the agency's shortfallings in terms of enforcement is not an argument for abolishing them. Prove to me that BP wouldnt
be able to do that to, say Louisiana costal waters under Pauls plan. And thanks all for your responses. These are honest questions of mine. Think of
me as a guy in a bar you are trying to convince to vote for Ron Paul.
The corporation would NEVER be anywhere near as big and powerful with considerably smaller government. The Federal government does far more for the
rich and powerful. Regulations never were or will be enforced against large corporations. The current system, and a large government, requires that
elite forces rule. It can't work any other way. Deficit spending, required by big government, creates massive debt. Debt that taxing a handful of the
rich or middle class could never cover. Thats where the banking system comes in. The corporations must OWN a large, centralized government in order
for it to work in the first place.
The false pretense of "compassion" is used to create dependents out of the ordinary citizens. Not at any point in all of human history has a dependent
ever had any power. And they never will. Dependent citizens give up all rights and powers in order to receive their entitlements.
Small, limited government would completely dismantle the corporate system. It is not a coincidence that big government and big business have had a
directly proportionate rate of growth for the last 150 years or so. they are totally co-dependent.
The EPA, like the FDA, will ALWAYS favor the large corps but use harsh enforcement against their potential rivals, you know... the REAL
If a quasi-socialist President's EPA is incapable of doing anything but supporting an environmentally abusive corporation, why would any president's
EPA do any different?
At a state level, the judges and officials are directly answerable to the people, who live within driving distance from their home. It is easy to scre
people over and blame it on legislators from other states, a douchey executive, or nebulous bureaucracies. If the people directly know who is
answerable, it forces them to be accountable. Such government worked well in the past. Much better and more accountable than now certainly. An EPA
working for the people is a very fanciful notion.
The Federal government is the greatest enemy of the poor and middle class and the greatest champion of the elite. That is why the corporate controlled
media (allegedly "liberal") works so hard to convince the sheep that the opposite is true.
