The only thing I agree with you here is this What If.
Paul supporters forget that Ron Paul's plans are very pro-corporatism much more than the system is now. With Gold backing the currency you are
absolutely right! They will get Billions under Ron Paul's plan, and you think that money's going to go back to the people?? Yeah Right! Especially
when there are no "safety nets." Like social security and/or insurance? Paul's plans are corruption gone rampant.

The only way Paul's plan would work without a hitch is if the majority of citizens were responsible and educated.
Of which they are not.
So yes, it is seemingly corporatism because the people are incapable of utilizing their power to control the corporate entities through boycotts
(choosing who you give your $ to).
See capitalism is perfect in a world where people ask questions, fact check, and choose to avoid corporations that do dirty business.
But in a world where people want to be told what to think? A world where people buy things because they think they "have to"? A world where people
don't care what the truth is, they would rather be given something to believe? There is no way to control corporations in that world.
Capitalism is for civilized societies that are capable of being fully self-responsible.
Just like they say about Communism, it looks great on paper but implementing it into the real world is rife with failure and unforeseen problems.
