    And in capitalism the “haves” buy political connections to become “have mores.”

    So how is this different from capitalism again?

    I’ll pause now to wait for the positive statement explaining how capitalism decides who the “haves” are, and how it magically eliminates the body odor of politics and the bad breath of political connections.

    I wonder why the standard of living is always higher in capitalist societies? Even for the have nots…

    Indeed, money talks in U.S. politics, because government has the power to make or break our endeavors. Business, therefore, spends money to make sure they’re on government’s good side. If we don’t like the way our “haves” spend money to accumulate political influence, the only sure way to prevent it is to prevent government from accumulating that kind of power.

    Thanks for the link, Elliot.

    So under capitalism, you either have no government and get screwed by large corporations directly. Or have government and get screwed by large corporations controlling government.

    Yeah, it’s a great system, isn’t it?

    Nice straw man, there, Debunked.

    Go ahead, Lance. Tell us how your years of work in government was all about reducing the power of government.
