Part of the definition of fascism is the merger of corporations and government. If there has not been a good example of fascism taking over this country, we have one with BP.
Every day, right wingers delusionally conspire to have coprorations take over the country. They whore themselves to corps and have stacked our entire legal system to favor the corps.
Look at what we have now. BP lies to the US people on a daily basis and is covering up this disaster from top to bottom. BP believes they are above the law and completely disregards the US Govt. requests to change dispersants.
Worst of all, BP will be fighting and using laws that favor corps to limit their liability to the 11 dead workers on the rig.
This is the face of big corporations. This is what the right wingers unwhittingly sold our country out for......all under the guise of "freedom."
You all have been dooped. I am sure this isn't the first time all of you right wingers have heard this, but it is a b i t c h to learn things the hard way.
Republicans are the worst thing to happen to this country.
I don't know your def of right wing but mine is I am ultimately responsible for my life and those around me. If I depend on others or rather expect society to solve my issues, I feel that would be left-wing.
Not that I am against regulations/laws. I fully support them if used to provide equality under the law (not bank account) including corporation who lobby gov and both walk hand in hand into the power and profits. Left wing/ right wing gov are all left wing, They all want gov to have more power. That is their job. To make rules. Most of the rules are unfair or balanced to favour the biggest donors. All politicos do it.
Solution, reject both. Vote with $$ and voice. I respect the Tea partiers even though they don't speak with a unified voice they have a clue. This Fasict state which you IMO mistakenly label as being a right-wing ideal is in fact more embraced by leftist and their partners in crime 'lobbist'..No one in that picture is a capitalist. Capitalist know rules are rules but how to win the game anyways. Crook are those who rig it in their favour. The only way a crook can truely rig the system it is with governments help. SEC ect they all are involved. Not a one big grand considerably, just the me me me factor. You can't tell me with a straight face that those who work for gov do it out of the goodness of their hearts. Some may, but they are just suckers like the rest of us when it comes to placing trust in gov., paying taxes and losing our voice and freedoms each passing year.
BP is a British company/ That being said, we are definitely corporatist or fascist leaning economically.
Hey, they create arbitrary economic power in the government and a large business has little choice but to kiss the government's butt. Look how Microsoft ignored the government. Its a good way to end up on the antitrust short list.
What kind of question is that? 9/11 was an actual terrorist attack. This spill is an accident, no one wanted this event to happen. Human errors with mechanical failures, mostly likely a combination of multiple errors. You think BP wanted this to happen. Come on.
The extent to which we cannot change our path towards military spending waste is another sign, FASCISM is here NOW!
The Supreme Court put corporations ahead of people in their decison about campaign spending.
Obama is a corporate tool.
At least, not everyone realizes that.
I beg to differ, it was under Bush we had to show our papers (pass port)
to come and go.
Loss of rights and freedom
If your under 30 you have no understanding of what I say.
But I do know what I say.
And what I say is you have far less "rights" when I was your age.
How far are you willing it to go?
if you are employed, maybe you should take a look at who pays you for trading 40 hours per week of your life for your efforts, ie working. then take a look at your paycheck and see who TAKES whatever they want to TAKE outta that paycheck (legalized theft)and then squander it on all kinds of worthless big-gov lefty crap. as long as that arrangement continues, you are a slave to those commiecrats in that commune on the potomac and the various state legislatures.
I work for an honest mid size corporation. Smaller corporations cannot operate outside of the law and mislead govt. officials.
There is nothing wrong with smaller corps. There is something very wrong with too big to fail companies like BP. These are exactly the same companies that fill the coffers of the GOP so that they can continue to make the US into a fascist country.
You think democrats arent cut from the same cloth well you r mistaken they are all from the same club once they enter the race for president they make sure they have both sides covered (corporations)
