  • This is true. Teddy Roosevelt and the old progressive republicans realized the we should have regulated capitalism not runaway capitalism. The megacorps and megabanks run everything and are powerful enough to influence the congress to exempt them from regulations and take advantage of disgraceful tax loopholes. Corporate welfare overshadows assistance for the poor by billions. The right to vote is an illusion of democracy.

    • Yes. Regulations would still allow corporations to thrive. But giving them the power to take over Congress (much less, the world) is unnecessary to corporate well-being… and is suicidal for the U.S. and other sovereign nations.
